Review: Ontario RAT CF copy at an amazing price from GearBest

Ontario RAT CF clone
Full sized heavy duty folder at a budget price

It's a decent full sized folder with a very affordable price tag. Unfortunately I couldn't change the position of the pocket clip to right hand tip up carry because the holes weren't tapped at mine. Other than that it's an excellent heavy duty folder with good ergonomics, nice details and smooth opening action out of the box.  

Pros:
- excellent fit and finish
- massive full flat ground blade with good slicing performance
- pretty CF laminate handle with excellent ergonomics even for large hands
- comfortable liner lock
- smooth opening and closing
- solid lock-up without any blade play
- easy to use pocket clip & thumb studs
- very good price 

Cons:
- right hand tip down carry as default, the other holes are not tapped for the screws
- the CF laminate handle shows scratches and has less traction than G10

!! It's on flash sale for $13.37 at the moment !!
