Ganzo G701 (tanto) 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 (review HERE). Both of these folders come with very comfortable G10 handles (the old versions had aluminium handles) and with an excellent fit & finish.



Pros:
- sturdy folder with outstanding fit and finish
- solid lock-up without any blade play 
- comfortable G10 handle with good ergonomics
- nice, mat, bead blasted blade
- definite jimping on the blade spine
- reversible pocket clip for right or left hand carry 

Cons:
- the pocket clip could be shorter

Details:
Blade length: 3.31" (84 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.15" (3.7 mm)
Blade steel: 440C Stainless Steel (58 HRC)
Open length: 7.8" (198 mm)
Closed length: 4.53" (115 mm)
Weight: 4.72 oz  (134 g)
Handle: G-10 with nested steel liners
Lock: axis lock
Carry: right or left hand tip up
