    My first Swamp Rat was a Ratweiler, and I ordered it (and received it) within the first couple of weeks that the knife was available.

    I chose the Ratweiler because I loved the look of the handle, and because of Swamp RatÂ’s reputation for making very tough blades.

    I still own it, and have no intention of ever parting with it.

    Got a Battle Rat off of Ebay for my first. Paid way too much, when it comes to blades I am impatient. After I handled it probably would've paid even more. My Howler should show up anyday as my cc has been charged. I am now on the look out for a Ratweiler on the forums for sale (hint hint). :D
