Ontario Knife Company (OKC), has expanded its RAT Series of fixed blades with the introduction of the new TAK 2. The TAK 2 fixed blade knife combines a phosphate-coated, high-carbon steel blade with stabilized hardwood handle scales and should make an excellent all-around outdoorsman’s knife.
Ontario Knife TAK 2 Is Sized Right
The TAK 2 has an overall length of 9.9 inches with a 4.2-inch long 1075 phosphate-coated high carbon steel blade with a full flat taper grind for excellent slicing and cutting precision. Its beautifully designed honey gold stabilized hardwood handle is not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but also comfortable in the hand while in use and offers a solid grip. But don’t let its good looks fool you. This extremely tough fixed blade can tackle nearly every task thrown at it. Whether you’re at camp or in the woods, it’s the knife you need when you need a knife outdoors.
The USA-made knife comes with a quality black belt-loop style leather sheath and has a retail price of $129.95.
