Review: Ganzo G722 - awesome heavy duty frame-lock folder

The frame-lock version of the venerable G720

After the G720 Ganzo raised the bar again. They managed to reach such quality level with these new G722 folders that they could be sold at triple price easily with a known brand name on them (or without it).

Pros:
- sturdy folder with an outstanding fit and finish
- practical blade shape with a nice satin finish
- solid early lock-up without any blade play
- massive frame-lock with lock-bar stabilizer 
- comfortable handle design with excellent ergonomics
- perfectly centered blade, very tight tolerances
- deep carry pocket clip with a window breaker tip

Cons:
- it's a heavy folder (228 g)
- initial sharpness could be better

Details:
Blade length: 3.58" (91 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.15" (3.8 mm)
Blade steel: 440C Stainless Steel (58 HRC)
Open length: 8.38" (213 mm)
Closed length: 4.8" (122 mm)
Weight: 8.04 oz  (228 g)
Handle: steel + G10 with steel liner
Lock: frame lock
Carry: right or left hand tip up

You can buy the G722 in 3 different colors at Gearbest: ***HERE***
and at Fasttech: ***HERE***
