Ganzo Yellow GZ3030 quick look
« on: December 01, 2010, 03:58:10 PM »
Hallo to all.
This was bought for 23.50 dollars, including shipping
It was described as "yellow" but it’s more of a yellowish camouflage paint.
It is bigger than I expected, thicker than a swisstool.
It was bought mainly to see what it was like and I don’t really intend to use it for anything serious.

Looking at it I wish I bought the standard stainless steel one, without the paint, as it appears prone to chipping.

The tools clamp together when they are opened, which in this case is a good thing as most of them are quite hard to open using a fingernail.

The pliers are spring loaded and appear solid.
It comes with two blades of about the same size, one serrated the other plain, none of them locking but with a good tight feel when open.

Ganzo is made/sold by Sanrenmu (which is one of the reasons I decided to buy it), and the blades of all Ganzo multitools are described, in their site, as made with 440C steel but I have not been able to verify that.
The site I got this from describes it as made with 440 steel.
It comes with a nylon pouch and 11 screwdriver bits, stored in a rubber case.

The feel of the product is acceptable, but it does not feel solid, it does not have a quality feel.
It feels like it’s of a lower quality than the Sanrenmu knives, similar to a Bahco multitool I have.
All parts of it appear to be working and it should be ok for light use.

Overall for the money it is ok, but I regret not getting the standard stainless steel one.

Ganzo's not made by SanRenMu.  SanRenMu acts as a marketing agent for their multitools, as well as some of the pocket knives from the Bee/Enlan company as well.  I have no idea why this happens, but it does.

Otherwise, nice comparison pictures - thanks!

I suspected it was not made by Sanrenmu, but could not find any proof of it, so I said made/sold by Sanrenmu just to be on the safe side.
For some reason Ganzo knives are more expensive than Sanrenmu/Land knives so I assumed that Ganzo products were more upmarket, but judging solely by that tool it does not seem so. I do not have any Ganzo knives to compare with.

It is surprisingly thick, I have reasonably large hands and it feels a bit too big when using the pliers. I assume the standard stainless one should be a bit thinner, as the paint appears to be relatively thick.

Pfft.. this guy thinks Ganzo tools are made by Sanrenmu. I expect he won't be a proper addition to this forum...  :D

It took him long enough to reach 15K posts, wouldn't you say?  :P

Although he did have a couple thousand posts erased when that thread was terminated.  :salute:
