View Full Version : RAT RC3 Opinion
07-11-08, 03:33 PM
Just bought a TOPS UTE 02 to use around the house and slice the odd piece of fruit etc. However the blade width of 3/16" and the traction coating doesn't appear to like the slicing side of things. Lovely bullet proof knife though, although it won't do what I wanted it for (should have asked for an opinion first!)
Am now considering whether a RAT RC3 with a 1/8" blade width would do the general jobs and slicing any better? Anyone have an opinion? (silly question really, of course someone will have an opinion!)

I can think of better "fruit knives" :rolleyes: ;)

With hindsight I agree with you, it's really a small general purpose knife that can be pressed into a bit of slicing if necessary, preferably with a, dare I say it, a "tactical" look to it but with a maximum blade lenght of 3", I'm not really into MOP and stag horn etc.

all the RAT RC3s I have seen have a powder coated 1095 blade, which isn't really good for slicing jobs, plus the blade is a bit bigger than 3", if that matters?
have you considered a Benchmade Activator?

I hadn't, but have just had a look and that might just fit the bill, thanks for the advice. Time for some surfing!
till may add a RC 3 to the collection at some point though!
Spyderco Bill Moran Drop Point. I've yet to find anything that comes close to its slicing ability. Quite tactical looking too;)

Hadn't thought of that one from my favourite knife company. Thankyou.
