    Mega RatManDu! (MRMD) Coming this Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020 starting at 9:00pm Eastern!

    The Mega RatMandDu raises the RatManDu platform to a whole new level!!!!

    At nearly double the thickness of the original RatManDu, this Beast comes in at a massive .350" thick! With this in mind, you would think that the Mega RatManDu would be Much, Much, Heavier than the original. . . . You would be wrong!

    The Mega RatManDu is only a mere 2.4 Ounces heavier than its predecessor thanks to its skeletonized handle and superior Hybrid Combo (HC) Bevel geometry!!!!

    The cutting and slicing ability of the HC bevel far exceeds the original RatManDu as well.

    The rounded perimeter eliminates hot-spots and you will be amazed at the feel!

    The in-hand balance point is identical to the original!

    Use it and you'll Love it. . . Beat and abuse it and you will Love it even more!

    The MRMD is offered in 2 blade finishes including coated and our Swamp Comp finish. (The Swamp Comp finish will show light machining marks)

    I'm still not sure about the thickness... Sure wish it'd be thinner (3/16"... Maybe even .20") AND with the HC treatment...

    But what the heck! I'm in! The RMD platform is hard to say no to ;)

    That be awesome. I currently have a very nice leather sheath for the RMD that fits just a tad looser than I usually like... I think it might work just perfect for this knife.

    Good gravy. Apparently the Ratmandu ate all the gravy.

    I will have to stock up on extra cheese. I don’t want the mega Ratweiler fighting the mega Ratmandu for dinner.

    Why? With Swamp Comp being the same price as coated (for 15 minutes, just buy uncoated - it'll look better than stripped, and no gremlins

    I can't wait to put this baby to the test... We keep perfecting an already awesome design... We took an awesome proven design and made it stronger without changing the balance or adding any noticable weight... Stay tuned... Testing is going to be extensive... If you liked the original, you'll love this next generation...
