Ganzo G720 Tactical Folding Knife

This is my second folding knife review, again this is an imported knife from China. While I don’t really like most things that are imported from China, the two knives I’ve reviewed have been pretty good quality for the price tag. Now it’s not a USMC Ka-Bar or anything, but really – for under 15 bucks it’s hard to beat if you’re prepping on a budget, which most of us are.

While we all have strong opinions on the matter these are just some possible areas that I thought would be good selections based on getting away from the mass population, not natural disasters.
