Review: Ganzo Firebird FH11 gen 2 updated version - the 1st Ganzo with D2 blade

Ganzo Firebird FH11, Nitecore TIP and Fura titanium bolt action tactical pen
The Ganzo FH11 along with my other EDC gadgets:

This is the updated version of the FH11 with reversible pocket clip, the first Ganzo folder with D2 blade steel. The light weight construction, the compact kwaiken style design  and the super slicer blade make it a decent EDC friendly folder.

Pros:
- very good ergonomics with excellent fit and finish
- hollow handle pattern which adds extra grip
- smooth opening and closing thanks to the ball bearings
- superb flipping action
- perfectly centered blade with a nice satin finish
- outstanding slicing performance
- solid early lock-up
- comfortable flipper tab and lock-bar design
- reversible deep carry pocket clip
- micro fiber pouch

Cons:
- none
