Ganzo Firebird FH21 Pocket Knife Review

Ganzo Firebird FH21 Pocket Knife Review
The Ganzo Firebird FH21 is a medium sized knife that was provided by Power Cutlery. With it’s G10 scales, the Ganzo FH21 has a blade length of about 3.38 inches or 8.5 cm. Although the Ganzo Firebird FH21GBD2 is medium in size, it actually has the weight of a smaller knife at 3.37 ounces or 95.5 grams. The Ganzo FH21-D2 deploys fairly quick thanks to a ball-bearing pivot. The strong detent also aids with deployment of the Firebird Ganzo FH21 blade which utilizes D2 steel.
Thank you for watching my Ganzo FH21 knife review.

Very good.
Thank you much, J.
This is one smooth operator. That’s for sure!
Plus, it’s a nice size. At 7.75″ long, it will appeal to a lot of people. Even myself, who doesn’t want to go under that dimension.

Great review! I’ve had mine for a few days and the only mod I did was to dremel-gently the sharp edges off the flipper tab…they were sharp enough to make tinder shavings. Yes, a great gentleman’s carry…if I was a gentleman. 🙂 I think I prefer the FH21 to the FH11. Thanks!

Out of all of the Ganzo’s I’ve gotten – this one is my favorite, too. Blade reminds me of the BM 940, action and feel are amazing

Papa Gato says:

Great video….appreciate it! My favorite is the fh 11….like everything about it!!

Thanks for the review….my wish is that they come up with axis lock knives with d2 steel with ball bearing. I love the F7631. If they make it with d2 steel even better. Also how about VG-10. maybe they will start making knives with 440C for basic knives, D2 for mid range and high end VG-10. Price wise the 440C in teens to mid 20s. D2 Mid 20s to mid 30s and VG – 10 40s to 50s. What do you guys think would you by a Ganzo with VG10 that 50 dollars?

D2?….that good to hear, liking the up grade.

Cark Nelson says:

My current favorite Ganzo is the fh 11. But I don’t own this one and I’d like to but I feel like if I wait a month they might come out with an even cooler one! Great review!

TheKnifeNoob says:

On my list. I get Ganzo’s from Power Cutlery, too. Great video!

Mt. Baldwin says:

The fh21 is my favorite ganzo in D2 and ganzo overall. The only improvement would be skeletonized liners (imagine it at 3 ounces). I’m glad LTK’s testing put that “its not D2” nonsense to rest, and ganzo has a fantastic heat treatment on it, nearly the best D2 so far (62 rockwell), better than kershaw or steel wills (artisan cutlery has higher at 63, but I’m starting to think artisan is made by ganzo, they seem just like fancier ganzo’s).

Street Tuff says:

Don’t have one in d2

D E says:

the quality for the price is just about as good as you can ask for. You actually get more than you pay for.

Steve Bowman says:

Just got mine yesterday and I have to say I think your review is spot on. My only con is the pocket clip which might become a hotspot for us lefties during prolonged use. Now I have to get the FH31. Ganzo must be losing money to eliminate their $40-$50 competitors. Great review.
