I agree - they are the best value in autos! What I really want is an auto the size & form of the F753M1 (which is smaller than the F7582), and I want it to have carbon fiber handles. I would be all over that like white on rice!

You are correct Will! Those knives are a total copy of the Protech blade shape.

Most here probably know this, but for any lurkers unfamiliar with the Ganzo numbering scheme, the last number (ie F758-2-BK) is the finish on the steel. 1 = Polished, 2 = Satin (Stonewashed), 3 = Black. So, for example, the difference between an F761-1 (also sometimes written F7611) and an F7612 is just Polished vs Satin blade finish.

It's another reason I use FastTech. They not only have some of the best prices, it usually only takes 2-3 weeks to arrive.

I agree with you Jerry. Fasttech (so far) has been the best and most reliable of the overseas knife suppliers. I did finally get my refund from AliExpress, but that was a lot more work than it was worth. It is amazing that items can be shipped, with a tracking number, and then just disappear into the black hole where all lost socks and screw drivers go.

The other place where you can buy Ganzo knives is http://www.powercutlery.com/ They are a USA supplier. Price is a bit higher, and they do not always have all the models in stock, but is is a whole lot faster and more reliable than shipping from China. You can also buy some Ganzo knives (but not autos) from Amazon.

The great thing about the Ganzo knives is, they are a quality knife (in spite of origin) but still priced so anyone can play.
