Review: Ganzo G704 new improved version

It's a nice Benchmade H&K 14205 (designed by Mike Snody) homage.
This is the improved version with thicker blade, bigger thumb studs and zero blade play.

- the axis-lock is easy to operate
- ergonomic, very comfortable G-10 handle
- nice 0.157" (4 mm) thick blade with bead blasted finish
- solid lock-up without any blade play 

- no lanyard hole
