The Ganzo Thread

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.

The Ganzo Thread

Postby jerryd6818 » Wed Jan 16, 2019 2:15 pm

A place to post your latest Ganzo, (or your oldest Ganzo) whatever flavor it may be.

I'm going to get it started by posting a stock picture of this Firebird F7551-OR I ordered last night. Some will say "ugh, how ugly" and that's okay, we're all entitled to our own opinions even if they are wrong. :lol: :lol: Hey! It's orange. Need more be said?

You've got to admit Sam, it is different. ::undecided:: Kinda looks like a pocket meat cleaver.

I thought so too. Any idea on the weight of it? Being orange it will be easier to find if you drop it in the leaves or thick grass.

4.16 really isn't bad for a knife with all that blade.

Power Cutlery has them for a few dollars more and to me it's worth it to get it in a few days.

I can't post pics with this phone but I have the green scaled autos in black. I have one or two of all the autos and many of the manual Ganzos and am very happy with every one of them. I know they are China made but personally I think for the money they are very well made! I've paid more and got less, and they're coming out with new models that are very interesting.

Captian O is a big fan of them too. I have that orange model with the carbon fiber and to me I think it's a little slick. If your hands got wet it might be a problem cutting, or not cutting yourself. I'm really a big fan of the automatic Ganzos. Well worth twice the fast tech price.

Picked up this one and it came today. Actually I had to go get it because the Post Office wasn't doing deliveries today. I don't know where I came up with that '1'. Actually it's an F755.
