I agree: I slightly prefer the Rat2 over the Zancudo because I have to exert myself to close the Zancudo blade. Easier to do so with my index finger than my thumb. Also, I don't like jimping that's decorative. Why bother? Other than that, the Zancudo is one of my favorite EDC's. It's a well designed knife.

"Zancudo does that mean mosquito?, it might" lucky guess for sure, just like me guessing TJENA LÄGET MANNEN means whats up bro in Swedish.. just guessing here tho 😛

Last I looked, there isn't a RAT II in D2 steel (yet) — but there ARE Zancudos with that tool steel!!

IMPORTANT:

Folks, this blade is excellent. But I must say, it needs improvements out of the box

First. My lockbar was so damn sharp and stiff. I sanded the corner to make it easier on the finger. I then tore the knife down and bent the lockbar out so that it wouldn't lock up at 100%. Next. i switched the pocket clip to tip up carry. This causes the knife a little stiffness in the action.

However! You can get this blade to fling open like a Rat 2… I tore the blade down and polished the washers, then I re-lubricated it. After a few flicks, things flys open! Blade centering and no bladeplay… excellent blade and the Aus8 will get razor sharp and hold it's edge forever…

For instance, I did a cut test and made 200 cuts on a piece of pine, Afterwords, it still shaved. Great steel

I had the rat 2 but couldn't with the way the blade is raised higher than the handle I thought it made it a little bit more difficult to pierce various packages that I was opening. In the market now for a zancudo. One of these days I want to do a road trip to blade hq. We don't have stores dedicated to knives here in Illinois.
