I don't own any of them, but have similar to the I voted for it.

Honestly, for me at least, most of the stuff the other two can do I would use a fixed blade for. The Victorinox has more options that a standard fixed could not do.

Prefer a Get Home Bag.

I'd take the Rat. Similar to my orange Buck spitfire. Thick blade, steel belt clip, and easy to find if you drop it. Not crazy about it being made in Taiwan, but I'm guessing the Luzon must be made in PRC, because it only shows one side of the blade in the link. Also looks cheap, too much plastic and a skinny blade, and looks just like a switchblade, which I don't care for.

I'll buy "free" chinese, but not "commie" chinese. At least the Victorinox is still made in Switzerland.

Edited: I changed my vote...I finally found what we were supposed to be voting on.

My vote would be for the Rat 2. Solid lock, good steel, good price, flickable but not loose on the bearings, large enough but not too large.

I went with the Cold Steel knife because when I want a knife I don't like having a bunch of other things in my way. I have had a lot of cold steel products and especially like their steel. It is fairly easy to sharpen, takes a razor edge. The steel is soft enough to take abuse without chipping like a harder steel does. With the softer steel I nearly never have to "sharpen" the blade with an abrasive stone and can recover the edge with a steel.
