[Review] Ganzo G302-H ~ Ganzo's Flagship Multitool

The multitool was sent to me by Fasttech.com for review.
Here's the product's link: Ganzo G302-H


The multitool arrived in a cardboard box marked with Ganzo's logo.


Of course, the multitool comes with a sturdy, button secured carrying pouch.


The back side of the sheath has a simple belt loop.


As an added bonus, the marvelous looking multitool also comes with a bit set that include flat heads, philips and allen bits.


As you can guess, the Ganzo G302-H is a fully sized multi tool.
It's available in Silver and Black color.


Don't get fooled by the picture's perspective.
The G302-H is a beast of a multitool.


The spring loaded pliers is, of course, the main attraction of the MT.
Both jaws are precisily aligned with no play on the horizontal or vertical axis.


Bonus points given for the replaceable cutter that can really go through some heavy gauge wiring.


All of the tools are placed on the outer part of the scales, which allows for a comfortable grip once the pliers are out.
The handles are very smooth with no sharp edges, while there are some mini-grooves for improving the user's grip.


The MT comes with 3 tools with dedicated thumb studs for easy access.
It neccessary to clearify that every tool is locked into place once engaged. The lock is very sturdy and robust.
First in the list is the knife which came decently sharp and is around 5.5cm long.


Next up we got the wood saw that came with an extremely agressive tooth angle.


Completeling the thumb-stud enabled tools, we got the serated knife which is also nicely sharpened.


Another important addition to the Ganzo's tool kit is the screw bits.
The metal upon which the bits are mounted is very thick to allow the MT to handle big torque.


The driver bits themselves are mounted on the included adapter which implements a magnetic base for keeping everything in place.
So far the system has been working wonderfully for me.


Except from the mentioned tools, the Ganzo also contains lots of other utility tools.
Can opener, Spring loaded scrissors, Lanyard ring
      

Flat head screwdriver, Awl knife
  

Fot the last part, here's a side by side picture with the only other brand-name multitool that I got, the Gerber MP400.
The ganzo is easily dwarding it as the MP400 is a mid-sized MT.


By its own, the G302-H weights 278g.


While the whole package is 395g.


To conclude, I would like to say that it's a pleasure to have this Ganzo in my backpack.
It's easy to use, has an excellent build quality and it can surely provide some torque and utility.
A nicely valued MT that you won't be scared to scratch or overuse.

I am planning to upload a couple of pictures after 6 months of owning the MT just to let people know how it holds up after extended usage.

Nice review, looks great!

Curious about the long term performance quality. That determines everything.
Definitely a real option when looking for mt’s

I don’t see that as being possible. If I expand the photo below so that the knife is 7cm from tip to end of working blade, the Ganzo overall length is 13.6cm.

So if it is 105mm as advertised, the blade length is only 5.4cm. A 2 inch blade on a flagship multitool, really?
That is a useless length for a saw as well.

Beam me up!

I have had this tool for about a year now, everything is working perfectly, my only complaint is that the thumb stud of the blades are a little loose… How to tighten it? Seems riveted in place instead of screwed in. Question

You are correct, the blade measures at around 5.5cm. 
At the time of writing the review I didn’t have a ruler available and thus I had to guesstimate.

Living on a country that knife laws are quite frustrating and unclear, I found the compact blade size to fit me quite well.
Though, I can definitely see that some people might think that the length is short for their use case.

Did the stud always have this kind of play? Mine arrived rock solid.

And in fact I don’t see any threads, so it must be riveted.
You can try hummering the base of the rivet with a thick nail hoping to expand it a bit and make it snug.

I am pretty sure that it will hold up just fine.
I guess time will tell Smile
