Haha, no. I thought the same thing when I typed that. Sounded painful but I left it be.

That's not his hand...he cut it off some other guy and then posed it for the picture.

One of my service advisers just picked up a Minimalist about two months ago. It really is incredibly light.

Just ordered an Ontario Rat 1. Because why not? I need a new camping/junkyard/random light-medium duty knife. Like I said before, I really enjoyed Tonebone's Tak 1. Rat series seems to have great reviews too. I thought about the smaller Rat 2 for convenience of pocket-fitting, but my hands arent small.

I love my RAT-1. It's my EDC these days.

Which finish/color did you get?

Black handle with a satin blade. Or whatever they call it. Thought about all black, but I know realistically I need something that is at least slightly shiny or I will lose it often.


Looks like it shipped last night.

Wore my minimalist on a hike today. Very pleased with that little guy. It's a perfect fit when only a small blade may be needed and weight is a concern.

If you ever decide to move the pocketclip to aaccommodateyour carry method (4 positions available), make sure you locktight the threads on the bolts.

I was wearing my rat-1 a few weeks ago when I was staying at Austin. After I left Matt's, I went down to stay with another friend. As I was walking through her house, the pocket clip caught a doorframe lockplate and ripped it out the frame. Completely.

Interestingly enough, the pocket clip only lost a bit if tension, that's it. I took it off, bent it back slightly and it was good to go.

Tough knife.
