Reporting these knives to ebay doesn't seem to get them taken down. Ebay does not give a rats.

I have had a few successes with getting listings removed. The main thing seems to be that it has to be claiming to be something that it's not.If it's just a SAK-a-like and says "Swiss Army type knife" eBay won't pull the listing. But if it is an obvious Chinese knockoff claiming to be "Genuine Victorinox" they will remove it. If you report something that is an infringement of the Victorinox name or logo trademarks and eBay does nothing, report the listing to Victorinox, I'm sure they would be interested and will contact eBay themselves.
I am not sure if this is the right thread for this listing or not since this knife is a Victorinox. However, it is a fraudulent listing in my opinion, so this seemed like a logical place.http://www.ebay.com/itm/Victorinox-Soldier-Alox-Swiss-Army-Knife-HD-Metal-Ribbed-Scales-/300932707699?pt=US_Knives_Tools&hash=item4610fcb573This seller has been trying to sell this used, engraved Pioneer as a Soldier for months now. I contacted him a couple of months ago and explained that he is selling a Pioneer, not a Soldier, and that he should correct his listing. He continues to re-list this over and over as a Soldier. This same seller has sold several other discontinued SAK's, and he seems to know exactly what they are, so in my opinion this is not an honest mistake on his part.I reported this to eBay today. It might be good for others to either contact the seller or report this listing as well.
Has to be for this price?http://www.ebay.com/itm/Victorinox-Swiss-Army-Red-Swiss-Champ-91mm-3-58in-Multi-Tool-in-Clam-56501-/121156597612?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c357ef76c
Also, why on earth would anyone sell a genuine Swisschamp that cheap? A brand new one?Does not compute Even if they got it for free they would easily find out the going price...
And then only the one person that bought it can report it.
Apart from the price, the seller location seems rather suspicious as well: Rio Rancho, New Mexico, China

Maybe they are claiming that they buy steel from Switzerland to make their parts out of. The photo of a SwissChamp in blisterpack is surely not the item one will receive for $22. Or are they counterfeiting the packaging too?
