Sanrenmu 7073LUC-SK with frame lock

A new rival to the renowned Sanrenmu 710 ?

Pros:
- stylish & elegant folder with an excellent fit and finish
- solid lock-up without any blade play
- slim handle with a cool titanium like bead blasted finish
- strong frame lock with a nicely sculpted lock bar 
- in closed position everything is shaped perfectly without any protruding parts
- it looks like a much more expensive folder

Cons:
- Out of the box the one handed opening was not easy because of the strong detent, so I filed the detent ball down a bit to make the opening easier.  

Details:
Blade length: 2.76" (70 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.098" (2.5 mm)
Blade steel: 8Cr14MoV Stainless Steel (~57 HRC)
Open length: 6.45" (164 mm)
Closed length: 3.7" (94 mm)
Weight: 2.94 oz  (83.6 g)
Handle: solid bead blasted steel
Lock: frame lock
Carry: right hand tip down

Ganzo G702 new improved version with G10 handle


I'm really impressed by the new line of G7xx folders from Ganzo especially by the G701 and the G702. Both of these folders come with very comfortable G10 handles (the old versions had aluminium handles) and with an excellent fit & finish.

Pros:

- solid lock-up without any blade play (it passed the spine-whack test)
- very comfortable G10 handle with good ergonomics
- nice, mat, bead blasted blade
- window breaker tip
- reversible pocket clip for right or left hand carry 

Cons:
- nothing so far

Details:
Blade length: 3.26" (83 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.145" (3.7 mm)
Blade steel: 440C Stainless Steel (58 HRC)
Open length: 8.07" (205 mm)
Closed length: 4.8" (122 mm)
Weight: 4.99 oz  (141.5 g)
Handle: G10 with nested steel liners
Lock: axis-lock
Carry: right or left hand tip up
Extra: cordura belt sheath
