The ACE Grand is our EDC friendly version of the popular GM5.
With the GM5 we set out to create what we felt would be 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;
- Awesome materials
- Great ergonomics
- Perfect fit and finish
- Great steel
- Carries nicely
- Bold appearance
While the ACE Grand still checks every box on the list, we changed a couple of things. We went for a nice American made Canvas Micarta for the rounded scales, and went with nested liners and a strong liner lock.
We did keep the large stout backspacer (in titanium) for strength but added a nice deep carry wire pocket clip, for a nice comfortable carry.
The Elmax 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
