    a Ganzo G-7471-BK Automatic knife! This is an auto with a 3 1/2", 440C steel Bowie-style blade. It is 8.26" OAL. The knife has a "tip down" pocket clip (not my favorite orientation, but it still works). This Bowie-style blade is a great "cutting machine" and should provide may years of yeoman service.

    The best part of this deal is (wait for it) the price! $19.08 shipped to my door from Hong Kong, China. :s0069::s0155: While it may take 3 1/2 weeks to receive it on the proverbial "slow boat from China" if it is anywhere near as good as my Ganzo Model G-719, It will be more than worth the wait!

    Life is good! :s0155:

    I've truly enjoyed buying, collecting, utilizing, and carrying my Ganzo knives.

    At roughly 20 a piece it is really hard not to buy a couple at a time.

    Their autos are hard to get a hold of.

    I buy from power cutlery.

    What is your source?

    FastTech is my source. They may take a while to get here, but you know they're worth it. I ordered mine this morning.

    I would suggest that you order soon before they are Out Of Stock.

    Automatic knife, probably illegal to carry anywhere that you would actually want to in the PNW.

    Nope. They are legal for open carry in Oregon as long as you can see any portion of the knife. They have been lawful as such. They were ruled a "pocket knife" in 1982.

    Look it up.

    Ok, so legal to carry if not fully concealed.

    Does that mean that my Push Dagger is also legal to carry if the handle is showing?

    Just ordered a couple myself through FasTech, one of the G-7471-BK and a GANZO G7211-WD2. We'll see, I'm a Benchmade guy but like any good knife.

    Im the same way. Im a 15 min drive away from the BM factory and ive been booked on benchmade for some time now. I ordered a few Ganzos over the summer and I will admit i was impressed. They make a good knife for the price. The 2 I bought have fame axis locks and it makes me feel like a traitor when I play with it.

    You get what you pay for though.

    I love my ganzo knives, but the blade steel is much lessor than most benchmades.

    I’m always sharpening them.

    However, if I loose one, I’m not overly upset.

    Just got two new ones in. I really like this blade profile. I call it the cleaver.

    You bet. I have one of these style blade cuts already. Made a great makeshift lime cutter a few weeks back for a few Coronas. That and I carry it regularly.

    Thanks, kid. These are great knives for the money and cut like crazy. I love my G-719 and now have yet another Ganzo F7582-BK "Firebird" (with G-10 scales) coming. That cost me $18.31. These are convenient pocket knives that far outperform their cost. They may not have the "super steels" but their 440C steels cut far above most of the 7cr17Mov Chinese steels out there today.
    The G7471-BK has the thick, upswept clip point needed for both fine and heavy cutting as well. Don't let the low price fool you, If you "pooh-pooh" these great little bargain autos, you will be the one missing out!

    Buy it and love it. :s0155:
