The ACE Grand is the EDC-friendly version of the popular GM5.
With the GM5 GiantMouse set out to create what they 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 checks all boxes;
Perfect fit and finish
While the ACE Grand still checks every box on the list, GiantMouse changed a couple of things. They went for a nice American-made Canvas Micarta for the rounded scales and went with nested liners and a strong liner lock.
GiantMouse 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 they 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 Jens’ and Jesper’s favorite hotels on their 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.
