ONTARIO KNIFE COMPANY® ANNOUNCES NEWEST ADDITION TO POPULAR RAT SERIES OF SURVIVAL/OUTDOOR KNIVES
Incorporating Extremely Tough S35VN Steel, the New RAT-6 Delivers
on Durability and Functionality
Ontario Knife Company® (OKC®), the award-winning cutlery maker with more than 130 years of experience designing and creating blades for every need, is proud to announce the newest addition to its popular RAT Series of knives, the new RAT-6 fixed blade knife. Chock full of quality materials and field-proven design features, the RAT-6 thrives at both large chopping tasks and fine detail work, making it the all-in-one versatile knife you need for survival and outdoor use.
“Our RAT Series of knives are some of our most popular designs, and for good reason. Each RAT series fixed-blade knife employs a functional design with top-quality materials that can handle all your chopping or cutting tasks in the woods,” said David Fenske, V.P. of Sale & Marketing at OKC. “For the new RAT-6, we’ve upgraded the blade steel to tough-as-nails S35VN, while incorporating a 5.5-inch blade with a deep finger choil and a micarta handle. This knife will be a new favorite among survival and outdoor enthusiasts,” he added.
The new RAT-6 features a 5.5-inch, S35VN drop point blade with 58-60HRC hardness and a satin finish. This means its blade length falls between OKC’s popular RAT-5 and RAT-7 models. OKC upgraded its steel in the RAT-6 to S35VN, which is an extremely tough, high-quality steel that provides superior resistance to wear and chipping while delivering excellent, long-lasting edge retention. The knife has an overall length of 12.1 inches including a vast blade length sweeping into a piercing tip. This blade design makes the knife a real workhorse when chopping. The RAT-6 also incorporates a deep finger choil and a micarta handle for a secure grip for when you need to accomplish more detailed work. With such versatility, the new RAT-6 is THE knife you need when headed outdoors.
The new OKC RAT-6 is 100% Made in the USA and comes equipped with a Nylon MOLLE compatible sheath, perfect for strapping to packs, MOLLE belts, tactical vests, or anything with a MOLLE panel.
