    My main concern with joining the RAT Pack would be trusting the judgment of any group who would allow me to be a member.

    As I remember it they had 1000 numbered Rat Pack plastic membership cards printed up. They kept giving out Rat Pack #'s even after the cards were gone until ESEE departed Blade forums. Till like #1050 or something like that.

    As I remember it.

    I had a number but no card. I like the idea of a knife, number and card. Maybe a Xancudo?

    I was an early member. It was an interesting experiment.

    After it was disbanded we were sworn to secrecy about it ever existing per Leader Randall and since we had sworn to obey "it is so".

    I joined just as they were switching to the old forum. I was given a RAT pack number but no membership card. After they stopped giving out RAT pack numbers I think there was a group that started their own numbers and called themselves the RAT Pack Rejects. When I first joined we needed RAT pack numbers to participate in some giveaways and contests...

    I would be interested. It seems like it would be a lot of work for the esee crew. They are busy with new product production. New group buys are hard to come by. It would take probably more than one person to manage a new RAT pack project. That being said it would be cool to have a new RAT pack program.
