Ontario knives: can withstand almost anything
Ontario knives, in full Ontario Knife Company, has a long history. The company was established in 1889 and has, as a result, over 125 years of experience when it comes to making knives and tools.
Ever since the Second World War Ontario has been one of the largest knife suppliers who delivers to the United States army. The fact that others have such faith in this brand says something about the quality and reliability of the knives.
Each Ontario knife has a no-nonsense look. They were simply made to be used and can withstand quite a lot. Ontario uses good-quality types of steel, such as carbon steel, to create their knives. When you order this knife you will receive one with an extremely sharp blade. You can, however, also easily sharpen the knife yourself to maintain its sharpness. The knives are primarily produced in the United States and have a decent price-quality ratio.
In addition to its rich history Ontario is known for its RAT knives. These knives were developed in cooperation with Jeff Randall’s Adventure Training. The knives are robust, have a functional design and a decent price-quality ratio. The most popular models are the RAT-1 and RAT-2. The RAT-1 is the original of the RAT collection. A great knife made for the bigger jobs. The RAT-2 is RAT-1’s little brother. The Ontario RAT models turned out to be a big hit.
