GiantMouse ACE Clyde Natural Canvas Micarta Stonewashed Elmax Liner Lock Folder
The ACE Clyde was named after the GiantMouse crew's favorite watering hole in Portland, “The Clyde Common”, located at the ACE Hotel in Pearl district. The design offers a mix of Scandinavian puukko meets Japanese kwaiken with a bit of Persian pesh-kabz in the mix. A slim, pointy and slightly up swept blade pairs with a simple, ergonomic with clean looks and plenty of performance and style in a sleek package perfect for EDC. This version comes with a stonewashed Elmax blade and natural canvas Micarta handle scales with black spacer and thumb stud.
Brand new, direct from GiantMouse Knives, Italy.
Blade: Riding on a bronze washer pivot, the slim, trailing point blade deploys with snappy action via the anodized aluminum thumb stud. Finished with a wear hiding stonewashed finish, the Elmax blade has a crowned spine for a custom feel and high flat saber grind for a balance of strength and slicing performance. Jimping on the spine adds traction and helps with sight free indexing.
Handle: Hardened, inset stainless steel liners support blasted canvas Micarta handle scales offering a traction even when wet. Simple in design, the clean lines are visually appealing and surprisingly ergonomic in the hand. A cutout for the lock acts like a partial index choil for added traction. One liner forms the locking mechanism providing smooth operation and solid, reliable lock up for safe use with jimping for positive disengagement. A matching anodized aluminum partial back spacer extends past the end of the handle with a milled hole for lanyard attachment. Stainless Torx hardware completes the construction.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, stainless steel wire clip.
Bohler Elmax: Elmax has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. Elmax also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid corrosion (rust) by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Elmax has very similar performance to M390.
