The ACE Grand is our EDC friendly version of the popular GM5, which we designed tobe a “magnum opus” - the ultimate GiantMouse folder to date. A cool design with an even cooler look and finish. The GM5 was the kind of folder that we feel checks all boxes:
Perfect fit and finish
While the ACE Grand still checks every box, we changed a couple of things. This latest version in the line of ACE Grands sports Red Canvas Micarta scales, and an M390 steel blade with a black PVD stonewashed finish.
The M390 steel blade was designed to be perfect for all-around use, and we kept it exactly like it was in the GM5. A high Saber Flat Grind makes it a strong but very effective slicer, and the pronounced swedge provides a fine point for penetration without losing strength at the tip.
The Grand was named after one of our favorite hotels on our yearly tour of shows. The Grand Hotel Nuremberg is an old hotel with a long history and a GREAT bar! When the GiantMouse team is in Nuremberg for the IWA Outdoor Classics show every March, most evenings either begin or end (sometimes both) at Atelier Bar at the Grand Hotel.
