Best of Ganzo - my new Ganzo folders in 2017

Top to bottom: G7531-CF, F7562-CF, G7533-OR, F7542-GR

I'm amazed by these new Ganzo folders. Each of them represent an excellent value for the money under $20 shipped. My personal favourite is the F7542-GR because of its utilitarian design followed by the F7562-CF which looks like the heavy duty version of the Benchmade BM940 Osborne.

Have a look at these details:

Review: Y-Start JIN02 folder with ball bearings and axis-lock

Happy New Year! :)
Slightly inspired by the Shirogorov F3 :)
Pros:
- excellent fit and finish 
- pocket/EDC friendly size with very good ergonomics
- solid lock-up without any blade play
- smooth opening and closing thanks to the ball bearings
- dead centered blade with a nice satin finish
- chamfered and skeletonized steel liners for weight reduction

Cons:
- the edge of the holes in the G10 around the axis-lock and the lanyard hole should have been rounded a bit (nothing serious, 5 minute work with a piece of sand paper)
- they could have used the thumb studs as stop pins (it doesn't hurt either)

Details:
Blade length: 3.35" (85 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.118" (3 mm)
Blade steel: D2 (59-60 HRC)
Open length: 7.87" (200 mm)
Closed length: 4.53" (115 mm)
Handle thickness: 0.65" (16.6 mm)
Weight: 4.48 oz (127 g) 
Handle: G10 with skeletonized steel liners 
Lock: axis-lock 
Carry: right hand tip up

 You can buy the Y-Start JIN02 folder in 4 colors at GearBest: ***HERE***
and at Fasttech:
***HERE*** (tan)
***HERE*** (black)
***HERE*** (orange)
***HERE*** (green) 

Probably it's the cheapest decent quality folder with
 ball bearings on the market at the moment:
Decent pocket clip and chamfered liners:
Perfectly centered blade:
Compared to the Spyderco Tenacious, the Ontario RAT2
 and the Spyderco Ambitious:
You can buy these folders on Aliexpress: 
Spyderco Tenacious OEM/copy: ***HERE***
Ontario RAT2 copy: ***HERE***
Spyderco Ambitious OEM/copy: ***HERE*** or ***HERE***
