The man asked and got an answer.
Anyway - I think it is very relevant.
Just to see the double standards people will pull out now to justify this.
I expect you and your buddies to condemn that as well (no excuses allowed ;)).
You see, I don't consider myself as bad.
Don't think Ganzo will ever get the chance to collaborate with some of the leading designers out there.
I would totally would like to see that happen.
Who knows, maybe they will be like the Shirogorov some day.
They did start from a pretty similar...
That is exactly where you are wrong.
Both knives have a sub frame lock on a carbon fiber scale - first used by Sinkevich.
So we have a similar overall design and the same lock.
If you look closely on the Gerber's handle and on the Ganzo one - you could spot a few differences there as well.
Again, it isn't a logo, it's a symbol for fire.
Just google "fire symbol" and you'll see thousands of symbols just like that.
Guess they all belong to Gerber, right? :rolleyes:
Every knife company cares about sales. Those who didn't care about that are no longer with us.
And based on their...
If they wanted to take advantage of Gerber's massive sales, they would have made it look EXACTLY like the Gerber knife.
We all know they have the ability to do that.
But they chose not to, so I don't agree with your statement.
It's not a knock-off and being inspired by other designs isn't a new...
It isn't a logo!
If you paid attention to the video you would see it just symbolizes the uncoated area on the top of the blade to be used with the ferro rod.
This is what happens when you try to review the knife through a picture. SMH
I think if they did want to make money they could have found...
Strong enough to hammer a nail into a tree.
Mine obviously arrived with the ferro rod (as you can see in the video).
I recommend you check with the store before you order if it will come included or not.
Thanks, I actually appreciate it.
YES, for 100%.
If it is in fact made in the same...
All of the haters jumped on the boat too soon (bet didn't even read the post).
The knives are similar in many ways, but the Ganzo isn't a 1:1 clone, has different grind, solutions and features.
I am convinced those are in fact made in the same factory in China and from the same materials, but...
I would like for people to post, like some did on this thread, that is why I post these reviews.
Haven't figured out how to get rid of the trolling haters yet, but I'm not the only one who is complaining about that, so must be a bigger problem.
Other than that the post is booming, more people...
Doesn't matter what I do on other platforms, I respect the rules and carefully selected what I posted on this forum.
Please stop driving people off this forum and learn to accept other people's opinions.
Just like I said - if you actually had the knife I would listen to what you had to say...
I own a Mora Robust.
Still glad I got the Ganzo though, it has a wider, longer and beefier blade, sits better in the sheath and has a usable hammer at the back.
Those 2 together are a nice combo though.
When will you realize that not everyone on this forum shares your (and your WC crowd) tastes and preferences?
2 folks on this thread have thanked me for this review - that is more than enough for me.
Last time I've checked you aren't the owner of this forum and not even a mod - so please don't...
Don't agree it is a crap design.
Certainly not saying it is the best survival/camping knife out there, but it is capable of doing the work it is intended for, and that might be more than enough for some folks out there, especially beginners in the knife world.
I think for the price it is more...
Some of these seasoned knife veterans don't even need to see the knife to say it's crap.
Sometimes they just need to see the brand name or even just the country it is being made in.
Why didn't you get it yet then?
~$26, could be had for $19.99 on sale.
