Sanrenmu 763

the steel liners could be covered by G10 around the lanyard hole for improved ergonomics

Sanrenmu GA T11
Pros:

- unique wharncliffe blade shape  
- curved G-10 handle
- deep carry pocket clip
- well positioned can opener

Inron MY803 - The Poor Man's Hinderer XM-18



It's a quite big folder it's even bigger than the Enlan EL01. Its handle is also oversized so it fits well large or gloved hands too. Although its overall size is bigger than the EL01, the blade of the Enlan has a longer cutting edge.

Pros:
- excellent fit and finish
- ergonomic handle with carbon fibre like G10 scale 
- because of its slim design it carries surprisingly well in the pocket
- solid lock up without any blade play
- drilled steel liners for weight reduction

Cons:
- average flipping action out of the box (it needs wrist flick to open)
- no lock bar limiter (altering the position of the pocket clip could solve this)
