Ganzo Auto Madness!

Whether we like them or loath them, Chinese manufactured knives have found their way into collections of all sorts across the entire globe. The intent of this forum is to offer a place where AAPK members can discuss the knives and not the politics.

I don't regret any of the Ganzos I've bought. I had to poke ya a little bit.

I have put a 707 in my cart multiple times in the last 6 months, but I have always resisted and bailed at the last second. However, before you go thinking I have an iron will, I must add that in every case, it was because I saw something shiny somewhere else and spent even more money buying that instead.

This is me on most days:

Love that picture. The joke that goes along with it, is:

Giggled like a school girl the first time I heard that. And the second time. And the fourth. And the................... It still makes me smile.

Let us know how you like it when you get it. Probably not the user as the others but I really like it. Whole lot less money than a Don!

I'll get my new Ganzo G707 in about 2 1/2-3 weeks from now. It will be my third one and I'll probably enjoy it a great deal. ::tu::

I see I've neglected to post my Ganzo Automatics. Let me rectify that right now. Bought a 707 for me, then a 707 for my grandson. He loves it.

I discovered this morning that one of our little neighborhood hardware stores down the street a few blocks is a Benchmade dealer so I stopped to see if they happened to have a Benchmade Proper 319-1. Turns out they only have four Benchmades in stock and two of them are Mini-Grips. So I get to jackin' my jaws with the guy behind the counter about knives and he whips out a plastic handled cheap POS Chinese automatic (maybe Pakistani. No marks on it.) and I ask him if he's ever heard of Ganzo and he says "no". His next day at work is Saturday afternoon so I'm going to take my Ganzo Auto's down for him to experience. He's bound to fall head over heels for them.

I have a G719, G758, G7471 and a G707 (new last Saturday). These are like Lay's Potato Chips & pretzels. (It is hard to stop at one). ;)
