Ganzo knives

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Ganzo knives are really inexpensive and the value for the money is good.

However they are not indestructible.

I made a "knife tournament" a year ago, with plenty of Ganzo models in it. In general they performed OK but not great.





Compared to a Cold Steel tri-ad lock knife, the Ganzos are clearly inferior. But sooo much cheaper.

Yes, I have a Ganzo. The Firebird G753 or something like that. G10 scales, axis lock and commendably sharp out of the box. Solid lockup and no discernible lateral play.

I don't remember how much I paid, but it must have been around $10 on special from Gearbest. Perhaps my standards are lower than some knife connoisseurs, but I am very happy with the quality I got for the price.

I have a couple. They seem to be decent quality if a bit heavy. If you don't mind that they are mostly knockoffs of major-brand knives (not counterfeits; they don't claim to be the brand they're copying, they just clone the general styling), they're a good value for the money.

In theory, there's no difference between practice and theory. In practice, there is.

Bought one in January. Very impressed with how tight it locks up. Action is smooth if slower than other auto knives I've owned. But since I've had it absolutely zero misfires on opening and also never accidently opened in my pocket. It's been my EDC since the day I received it. For under 20 bucks , great value and I won't cry over much if it get's lost. I plan on getting a second one though soon just in case it does grow feet and walk away. Came straight from China and I think they might have walked it here. It took forever. It took six days alone from it's arrival in Chicago from overseas to my mailbox in Kansas.

Got a Ganzo Firebird last year and I was happy with the quality.
