Re: I just ordered a Ganzo G719 SS Folding knife (auto)

Hi Gang, We had a post on this about a year ago, I have been carrying a G721 every day now. GREAT Knife I don't let it get to dull I give it a couple of stroke on ceramic rods once a week if I used it a lot. It holds a edge pretty good and I can get it razor sharp.

Button Pusher - T

Hi Gang, After we had a disagreement, the war department (my wife) told me “You are a button pusher, you sure like pressing peoples buttons, don’t you”.
