Review: Ganzo G712 (F712) - the budget version of the Benchmade Bedlam

Ganzo G712 (F712)
Bad@ss persian style blade

Pros:
- strong, sturdy folder with an excellent fit and finish
- unique, up-swept persian style blade (ideal for self defense)
- massive 0.141" (3.6 mm) thick blade 
- grippy, curved G-10 handle
- it comes with a pouch

Cons:
- big pocket clip
- no lanyard hole

As opposed to the Benchmade Bedlam the G712 / F712 comes without the steel backspacer (skull crusher) at the bottom of the handle which would contain the lanyard hole too:
