Well worth the money!
The knife arrived sharp enough to shave cleanly with, I did not feel any need to touch it up (I did want to touch up the #7582 a little bit, which I own as well).
Knife opens with authority, locks up solidly either open or closed, no play in any direction. Blade is well centered, no rubbing on liners opening or closing. The firing button works easily, but not TOO easily for safety. Knife has an additional safety lock lever, this is a little stiff but I have only had this for one day, it is not a problem and will probably ease up with use and some lubrication.
A slight enlargement to the "sharpening choil" at heel of blade edge would be good, the factory grind for secondary bevel (sharpened edge) of blade runs on into the ricasso just a bit. I will enlarge the round factory "sharpening choil" myself to make sharpening easier and then smooth out the small over grind from factory, this is a minor cosmetic touch up done only because it's easy and I know how, not because it was ugly or any kind of a problem for use as it came.
I hope to see Ganzo offer this kind of locking design (and build quality) with D2 or some of the new Particle Metalurgy high wear resistance/high hardness steels. I have two of Ganzo's models with D2 blades (FG 11 and FG 21) and would be pleased to pay a bit extra for automatics with such steel.
Thank you very much for your positive feedback and we will consider your offer!
