    I was told the steel is better quality. If you look at how quick mine went compared to the other one advertised that must be true. Hope this helps. Didnt want to get rid of it but have no use for it at the moment.

    Total myth, hardly any difference between the two...

    Look up the metallurgy then one will see.

    I seem to remember posting the different steels on here. The EKA comes out a couple of brinell points harder, but that's the only real difference.

    Its all about marketing and snobbery.

    Audi-VW-Seat-Skoda might all be based on the same car platform and engines but they sell in different markets. Outdoor edge sells in USA so must be priced for that market. Both are of chinese manufacture. January 2009 Taken from Swedish Newspaper

    EKA knifes in Eskilstuna in Sweden close its factory and move to China…and starts production there…
    EKA was the last knife factory in Eskilstuna.

    Eskilstuna have, sins some hundred years back, produce millions of knifes in a lot of knife factories. The famous barrel knife comes from Eskilstuna. A lot of other knifes was also born there.

    So, from now on, when you by a EKA knife it is “Made in China”…

    EKA's response via email

    “Actually, you can just believe 10% from the media...
    We are staying in Eskilstuna-Sweden, with part of our production, just we
    have reduced the number of staff.
    Since longtime we produce small part of our knives in Portugal and China to
    reduce our costs.
    The Swedish Media has deviated all the truth and wrote it in a way to serve
    the politicians.
    However, we are staying in Sweden, and will continue selling high quality
    knives with 10 years warranty, wherever our knives are produced.”
    …our knives are made in Sweden except Swingblade, 8 Lite and 8 LK,
    which are made in China.
    We have another factory in Portugal, producing the Butcher Set with
    Portuguese steel 54-55 HRC.”
