          That's one of the "real" Swiss Army knives. The Victorinox "Soldier" and the Wenger "Original Issue" are the best for that type of knife. The main blade is much thicker/sturdier than other Victorinox and Wenger models.

              Don't know what you mean by survival/combat knife exactly (it means different things to different people). But a RAT-3 is a bit smaller than what most people would consider for that purpose. A knife between 3.5" and 4.5" is what most people would consider a utility knife.

              Generally, you'd want something in the 5-6" range for a general outdoors/survival knife and something around 7" or more for a combat/fighter knife (whatever that means...it's not like anyone actually uses a knife in combat anyway).

              Among the Ontario's RATK models, my favorites are the TAK-1 (4.25" blade) and RAT-5 (5" blade). I strongly prefer 1095 to D2. I find it's almost impossible to put a truly shaving-sharp edge on D2.

                What would you consider the Rat-3 to be?

                Well, posterity, you will never know what it cost us to preserve your freedom. I only hope that you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.

                  He, he. I also have a pocket knife that I use every time we have steak at home (it is razor-sharp and cuts like a hot blade in butter). Just like your grand dad or a farmer would do. I don't know. Maybe just old habits... Every guy should have a pocket knife...

                    Didn't have any knives as a kid, did you?

                    I remember when my mother bought me the Rambo knife. I thought I was the coolest! It had the compass and inside had matches, a cutting wire and some other things I can't remember.

                        I had a Rambo knife just like that as a kid. I loved that thing. I'm pretty sure mother's wouldn't allow their kids to have such a vicious killing device these days. I felt like a real GI Joe or something with it. I remember fastening it to the end of a pole and making a spear with it. It would actually stick in stuff when you threw it. Really fun.

                          CRKT M16 and S&W Karambit. I think I love the karambit the most cause it looks so much like a raptor claw or somethin:

                            Here's a tiny leatherman I found I has come in handy as well as my little Kershaw I always carry. They replaced it for free when the torsion bar wore out and I didn't even have proof of purchase or anything.

                              A 3.5" fixed-blade is more of a utility knife than anything else. The RAT-3 is a bit of an orphan IMNSHO since the blade stock is too thick relative to how short the blade is: not really big enough for heavy cutting and chopping: not really thin enough for fine work.

                              If I wanted a knife that small, I'd go with a folder. Easier to carry around (less weight and bulk). Plus, a 3.5" folder is legal to carry everywhere, so you have it when you need it. You're not going to be walking around Times Square with a fixed-blade sheath knife on your hip.

                                I have a kershaw onion that I've been carrying for a few years. Very handy, and thin. I love it.
