GiantMouse Ace Grand

- —T. Edward Nickens

Based on the limited-edition GM5 folder, the more affordable Ace Grand cuts no corners. The canvas Micarta scales are sleek and artful. A titanium backspacer adds strength to deeply nested liners and a solid liner lock. The pelletized Elmax steel gives a near-perfect blend of edge retention and sharpenabi­lity. The blade’s high, flat grind makes it a cutting machine, and the dramatic swedge gives a fine point to a knife that still sports a bit of skinning belly. Weighing 4.75 ounces, with a 3.3-inch blade, it’s just enough knife to give you a sense that you’re holding something serious in your hand, yet it won’t pull your shorts down when clipped to a pocket.
