How well does Ganzo knives hold an edge?

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'm hooked on FastTech for my Ganzos. The lowest prices I've seen and free shipping which is also the fastest I've seen out of China.

They hold an edge very well. This Saturday I received my new Ganzo G707. (It is a copy of the Pro-Tec "The Don". For the $18.56 I paid, the knife is great! I'm carrying the thing for "general use" and it cuts and holds an edge better than any other "Bayonet" or "Stiletto" bladed knife costing far more. Ganzo does a fantastic job with the steel used. I love this knife! ::tu::

Buy one. You won't regret it.

I'm a skin flint. For the $8 difference, I'll just wait a little longer and order from FastTech.

I'm with JerryD on this one -- ( save$$$$$$$$ ) I have ordered a couple times from FastTech and was well satisfied -- most of mine have the 440C steel and I have had great service,from the ones I used !!

Hey Monkey Man. I have one of those. It's a slick motor scooter. In fact it may have been you that prompted me to get one. I picked it up in August of 2018.

I think you are correct JerryD**_________ that's about the time I got the Orange knife -- it was my deer hunting knife this past year -- use it, wash it,use it again,& with only a few strokes on the ceramic rod, it's still sharp :) ___ the automatic is slick as a button too ::tu::

https://www.amazon.com/s?me=A1DX90G75MW ... f=glow_cls

If it's worth it to you to save a few $ and you don't mind waiting for approximately three weeks for delivery, I suggest you check out FastTech. The price is $2 or $3 cheaper and they have free shipping. I tried BestGear but my experience was not up to what I get with FastTech. You may get it faster from Amazon but you're going to pay more.

If it's anything like their other knives I think you'll be happy with it.

I carry a Ganzo M719 daily. It is a clip-point 440C automatic with on side coverd with a G-10 scale. The pocket clip side is solid metal. This knife holds a wonderful edge and snaps open to attention like a Chief Petty Officer when the Admiral is inspecting the ship's crew!.

I have four, and love each and every one of them.

Pretty confident "Jackworld" is a "bot" or salesman. All the posts act like "I just got this knife" and posting links to their web site. ::td::
