Review: new all-steel Sanrenmu 7071 with frame-lock

Sanrenmu 7071 LTF-SZ
Elegant design, solid construction

Pros:
- stylish folder with a nice stone washed finish
- slim EDC friendly design
- solid lock-up without any blade play
- massive frame lock
- gorgeous stone washed Sandvik 12C27 tanto blade
- bottle opener function of the blade tang in closed position
- deep carry pocket clip 

Cons:
- the blade of mine is slightly off centered in closed position
- out of the box the one handed opening wasn't easy, it needed some time to brake in 
Edit: I managed to eliminate both problems by changing the place of the bronze / teflon washers and by pushing the lockbar slightly outwards in order to decrease the detent strength.

  2. I put one of the bronze washers to the other side.
    1 teflon washer <-> 2 bronze + 1 teflon washer
