Hell of a nice knife $10.99. It's been a dollar cheaper a few times but still a steal even at $11

So what does "semi-automatic" mean... torsion spring... assisted opener...? I have a couple of the automatic Ganzo G736 and G721 and they are great construction and stay shaving sharp with that Ken Onion abrasive belt sharpener..

I wouldn't consider it automatic in any sense semi or otherwise. It's just an axis lock. It will deploy very easily when you pull the axis lock back or with a flick of the thumb stud but it is not automatic in any way.

Interesting. Would this make for a good multipurpose EDC then?

Or should I plump up some more cash for something else on Gearbeast? Fugue If I'm going to order from there I will have to wait a long ass time to get it regardless

It's extremely light and really kind of just disappears in our pocket which is a big bonus for EDC. But for me I don't quite like the fairly extreme pointiness of the knife for EDC tasks and I find it a little pretty to want to beat up doing some of the stuff I do with a EDC.

I feel it to be more of a gentleman's blade and it would do well to carry for self defense and or lighter EDC tasks. That's all just personal preference and I'm sure it would fit many other's definition of a perfectly fine EDC. At $11 give it a whirl.

For $7 I've found this to be the perfect EDC for me.

When I first got it I let it sit in the drawer for a good while not thinking to much about such an unassuming knife. After carrying it for a few days it's my go to pocket knife everyday. Just fits the role perfectly for me and I'm not heartbroken if I beat it up or lose it. Bought a new one immediately after I lost the thumb studs on mine after about a year of use. You can plump down some cash and get a great EDC.

Thank you for the information! I have a few of the chinese kershaws that pop up on sale on the time and i'm underwhelmed by the sharpness and longevity of the sharpness.

It looks like Ganzo has a Spyderco paramilitary clone that looks interesting. Does anyone have one of those?

Have it and love it but once again while a great knife and perfectly fine for EDC it's not my preference. Lean to more utilitarian for EDC and actually just put in an order for this one which is similar to the Sanrenmu 7010 LUC-SA I linked but with a little more size and a nice G10 handle.

$14 for the black, $15 fro green.

Once again it all just my preference. For these prices order a few and figure out your favorite.

Just a word of warning for any following along. Gearbest can be slow shipping. The stuff comes literally on a slow boat from China many times and has to go through customs. Paying for the upgraded registered mail can speed the process but I seldom do and feel it goes against my SD mentality.

That being said I have over twenty orders in with them and every one has been fulfilled. Some with quite long waits and others fairly fast.

Thats a handsome looking knife. I bought something similar before in a larger size, very nice quality for the price. This 3 inch blade looks much better for EDC. I have much more expensive Sebenzas and Spydercos but cant resist these cheapo cool knives!

I have quite a few Sanrenmu's and they are very good for the prince,, enlan, SRM, Ganzo's

Though these are great but my favorite EDC is the Kershaw cyro II because it is...
-tip up or tip down
-low ride clip that is for lefties or rightes
-not bulky but a capable blade
-spring assist open
-big enough to be useful still

Great points from all Smilie
