I don't want one, and do not go in to forests that often, but if I did it makes sense over an all blacked out knife. An all black knife in a forest might be a problem if you dropped it and could not quickly find it.
One way to improve this knife for all forests incl rain forests would be to make it out of LC200N. Maybe Spyderco would make one...and I'd buy one for that day I happen to trek in to a forest.
