Review: JUFULE Quantum G10 flipper - Another super value budget folder

JUFULE Quantum G10 flipper
Amazing level of fit & finish in this price range
Check out my video and size comparison
 with the Spyderco Endura 4 and the SRM Land 910 plus: HERE

The titanium versions of the Quantum are available on Aliexpress for a while. Recently Jufule decided to release a real budget friendly version with G10 handle & D2 blade. The attention to details and the level of fit & finish are outstanding at this Jufule version which is quite surprising in this price range. For example the details on the flipper tab are amazing. The corners and edges on the handel are nicely rounded, the flipper tab and the lock-bar are comfortable to operate. Thanks to the ceramic ball bearings the opening - closing action is butter smooth.  

Pros:
- super value for the money
excellent fit & finish with nice details
- perfectly centered, wicked sharp blade with a nice satin finish
- solid lock-up without any blade play
- excellent flipping action, smooth opening & closing
- ceramic ball-bearings
- hidden lanyard hole & pivot collar

Cons:
- tool for the pivot screw is not included
- In closed position the corner of the edge is close to the open back. It's under the level of the handle slabs but I can touch it with the tip of my finger if I really want.

Review: Sanrenmu - Land 820 - Mid sized regular Sebenza for the people! :)

Sanrenmu Land 820 titanium & VG10
Elegant compact & light weight folder with VG10 blade
Check out my video and size comparison
 with the Land 812 and the Land 9301: HERE

My new Land 820 - the succcessor of the Land 812 - has arrived! :) This time Sanrenmu released a mid sized regular Sebenza style folder with the usual high quality components (titanium handle, VG10 blade, ceramic ball bearings, steel lock-bar insert etc.). Thanks to the intensive handle milling it even weights less than the 812 (3.03 oz (86 g)  vs. 3.42 oz (97 g)).  

Pros:
- good value for the money
- EDC friendly size between the large and the small Sebenza
- excellent fit & finish with nice details
- perfectly centered, wicked sharp blade
- crowned blade spine
- optional gold or blue dual thumb studs
- solid lock-up without any blade play
- steel lock-bar insert
- ceramic ball-bearings

Cons:
- The detent is on the stronger side so opening the folder slowly is not as convenient. I prefer  thumb flipping it open.

You can buy the Land 820 on Aliexpress: 

Details:
Blade length: 3.03" (77 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.122" (3.1 mm)
Blade steel: VG10
Open length: 7.2" (183 mm)
Closed length: 4.13" (105 mm)
Weight: 3.03 oz  (86 g)
Handle: titanium
Handle thickness: 0.41" (10.5 mm)
Lock: frame-lock with steel lock-bar insert
Pivot: ceramic ball bearings
Carry: right hand tip up
Opening: dual thumb studs 
Screws: T8 & T6 (lock-bar insert)
