Because of a stupid rule of Aliexpress the sellers are forced to photoshop the locking mechanism on the folders. So don't worry these folders come with solid frame-locks!

Nice dual tone finish on the blade:
The cut outs make the unlocking comfortable:

Review: Ganzo G729 vs. Paramilitary 2 clone

Both of them come with an excellent fit & finish and solid lock-up.
You can find my detailed review about the Ganzo G729: ***HERE***

Differences:
PM2:
- Compression lock
- Less weight thanks to the skeletonized nested steel liners
- Jimpings on the blade spine and on the finger choil too
- Slightly thicker and narrower blade
- One way mounted (right hand tip up) pocket clip 
- Bigger lanyard hole with lanyard tube

G729:
- Axis-lock
- It weights more thanks to the full steel liners
- Jimpings on the blade spine only
- Slightly thinner and wider blade with sharpening notch
- Two way mounted (right or left hand tip up) pocket clip 
- Smaller lanyard hole

Details of the Paramilitary 2 clone:
Blade length: 3.46" (88 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.137" (3.5 mm)
Blade steel: 8Cr13MoV Stainless Steel (58 - 60 HRC)
Open length: 8.19" (208 mm)
Closed length: 4.72" (120 mm)
