Ontario knives are known for their uncompromisingly function-oriented design. They are extremely durable and accept any form of use and sometimes even misuse without complaint. Due to the full tang construction of the 1095
carbon steel blade and the highly abrasion-resistant black coating in combination with the high-quality canvas Micarta scales, the knives are perfectly suited for a multitude of different cutting chores outdoors. In collaboration with the professional instructors of the organization Randall's Adventure Training, the models of the RAT series have been especially developed for the civil missions in the fields of adventure, survival and outdoor. The models of the TAK and RTAK series are aimed at professional user of the military and police forces. The TAK knives include a puncture-proof Cordura sheath, the RAT 3 series has a functional Zytel sheath and the knives of the RAT 5 series equally comprise a puncture-proof Cordura sheath and a small front pocket.
The American forces were that impressed by the model TAK-1 that they introduced it after a short trial period as official item of equipment (NATO stock number 1095-01- 515-9869). Delivered with puncture-proof Cordura sheath and multiple attachment options.
