GiantMouse ACE Clyde Tumbled Brass Satin M390 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 satin M390 blade and tumbled brass 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 a striking machined satin, the M390 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 tumbled brass handle scales for a handsome look and good heft in the hand. 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 M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end, user grade knives thanks to its high level edge retention and exceptional corrosion resistance making it very low maintenance. It also resists burr formation for greater ease of sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and CPM-20CV.
