Just saw one of these at Walmart today, what makes this walmart version different than others? and does anyone know which set of tools it has on it?
 
The Wal-Mart exclusive has the "K Texture" on the handle.

Knotty's right. The only upgrade is the K Texture. It still has the carabiner and cord cutter/hex wrench. The color of the aluminum handle is slightly darker, as well. Looks pretty tight.
 
Was hoping it had a bottle opener on it - requisite for every knife IMO!
 
The Walmart version is based on the Funxion EMT. It has black injection moldd handles with K-Texture, and the same tools as the Funxion EMT (which does include a bottle opener). The blade is 3Cr13 instead of 8Cr13MoV.
 
Is the 3cr13MoV better or worse than 8cr13MoV?

The more cr13's the better right :p

Oh so the entire handles are injection molded? No aluminum on this one then?
 
3Cr13 is very low carbon compared to 8Cr13MoV. If it's like most low carbon/high chromium blades then this will probably have an HRC in the low 50's (50-55), where the 8Cr13MoV will run in the upper 50's (55-59). 3Cr13 might compare closely to 420J2 steel, while 8Cr13MoV performs much like AUS8.
