    Says $154.59 when I go to the page, they fixed that pretty quick. Or sold the "3 remaining".

    Note that the vendor is now a different company than Walmart. I believe they had 8 at the low price. I'll see next Monday what I get.

    Or suck rocks, depending on what shows up. Today my cheap genes flared up. A sis-in-law gave me a nice iPhone 6 Plus for free today and then the devil made me search Walmart for Fallkniven.

    Nope I got refunded, I just mean the product listing was a bust in that it wasn't what I/we had hoped or what was displayed online. Clearly there was some risk from the get-go, but seemed worth a roll of the dice as could easily enough return it.

    That lettuce is awesome! This one may be better than the ESEE 5 debacle in the end.

    BTW, on the offhand chance the Wallymart had a few hanging around that might be actual knives rather than vegetables, I emailed Fallkniven. This is the response:

    Hi,

    Thanks for your email. Walmart is not buying directly from us since we have a number of authorized distributors in the US. I wouldn't worry about counterfeits in this case. Walmart is a big company, and I would be very surpriced if they sold counterfeits.

    Best regards,
    Thomas

    Fällkniven AB


    This is the second time I've contacted them about a detail and they are very prompt and polite.

    I see Walmart's scam now. Throw just enough of these at us to keep us shopping their site:D Genius! BTW, CONGRATS! That's an insane deal. It's no folding spork/ESEE 5, but it's OK:4:

    With the black Cerakote, you can't see the lamination line. However, the fakes so far do not have a convex profile, which should be easy to spot. In addition, the grinding at the rear of the blade doesn't have a nice notch. I've not seen mention of fakes coming with a leather sheath.

    The rubber over molding on the handle of fakes seems to be a little more crude, though it is hard to tell in the pics.

    No hologram, but the inside of the box is brown... so who knows? The leather sheath alone is worth the $28....

    Well, look at the blade profile. An even convex grind is smooth and sexy and leaves no room for a big arsed edge bevel. Devil is in the details.

    Regardless of what this is or isn't $28 looks like a steal to me. Use the hell out of it and report back.

    Mine came in - look legit. Very nice quality. Very good edge. One does not have the holographic label, the others do. And they are the later rectangular "Hidden Tag" type. I'll have to download the scanning app and verify. A couple of the boxes are a bit wrinkled, but what the heck.

    The shipping labels indicate a "3rd party DSV"- Drop Ship Vendor. Interesting: https://www.acenda.com/content/sell-on-walmart-dsv

    Edit: The hologram labels scanned as genuine.
