After doing a lot of research over a year ago now I found this one:

Rescue Knife Floating (Not Locking) - Yellow

It's cheap, razor sharp and it floats too

I think you can get glow in the dark ones too.

I have seen them in orange and yellow.

Plastimo make them as well.

They fit in the musto pouch that comes with their trousers so I removed the pouch and put it on my lifejacket belt

Been using it for over a year and it's great, it's right up there with the Aldi grab bags

That knife is incredibly good value! Does it come with a sheath to store it in?

No, that's why I use my musto pouch.

I use one of these now. Very sharp and has proved itself several times over. Gerber E-Z Out Rescue Knife Genuine Marine Version | Dinghy Sailing at sailboats.co.uk

+1 I've got one of these - very sharp, lightweight and has a rounded tip so you don't pierce the tubes if you accidentally drop it!

Hear is an epic thread on the topic:

Knife for Lifejacket

I would still recommend the blunt nosed version of the CRKT Bear Claw as the best design for a lifejacket mounted rescue knife.
