Ganzo G712 - the budget version of the Benchmade Bedlam



Pros:
- strong, sturdy folder with an excellent fit and finish
- unique, up-swept persian style blade (ideal for self defense)
- 0.141" (3.6 mm) thick blade 
- grippy, curved G-10 handle
- it comes with a pouch

Cons:
- big pocket clip
- no lanyard hole

As opposed to the Benchmade Bedlam the G712 comes without the steel backspacer (skull crusher) at the bottom of the handle which would contain the lanyard hole too.

  3. How have you found it to be as an EDC? I wasn't sure if it would be the most practical choice for EDC, although i think the pointed tip will be very handy.

  5. It's not my office EDC folder but I put it in my pocket when I arrive home or when I take the dogs for a walk. It works for making sandwiches too! :)

  6. left hand carry is easy with this knife. drill out the left scale, grind down the mounting area where the clip goes, and put the screws in. the liner is already drilled and tapped. i did mine in about 10 minutes. i also made my own skull crusher/ lanyard hole from some 6061 T-6 i had.
