I'm glad I can't see those funny coloured ones in person. I'm getting hypnotized and I might end up buying one.
I grabbed mine. It's a Mora brand, just says, K.J.ERIKSSON MORA-SWEDEN CARBON STEEL. on the blade. It has a really solid handle covered in rubber and a medium hard plastic case that covers the knife well up the handle. You could attach it to your belt but I don't.
I have attached a magnesium block and pretty chewed sparking insert to the case. I think I'll grab a second as a back up if they're still cheap and available. I would have to think there's some equivalent in an American made knife but maybe not.
I like the look of those Mora knives, I'll bet they're comfortable. Simple, tried but true design but you don't need anything more than that out of a knife unless you are planning hand-to-hand combat. The Swedes are not known for making junk, either.
