After the first the introduction of the Giantmouse ACE Clyde in 2019, the company is releasing two new versions of the Clyde with aluminum handles. The Clyde originally appeared in green canvas Micarta and in black G10.

GiantMouse ACE Clyde A Mix Of Influences

The ACE Aluminum Clyde design represents a mix of cultures: Scandinavia meets Japan with a touch of Persia. The knife was named after the team’s favorite watering hole, “The Clyde Common,” located at the ACE Hotel in Portland’s Pearl District. The Aluminum Clyde was made in honor of Clyde’s mom’s 1969 pink tint Air Stream.

The ACE Clyde is a liner lock with a 3-inch blade of N690 steel.

This Folder Is Available With Red Or Black Handle

 The ACE Aluminum Clyde is available in red and black aluminum. The Red Aluminum Clyde has a black aluminum backspacer and thumb stud. The Black Aluminum has a red aluminum backspacer and thumb stud. Both knives have liner locks, with the steel liner PTFE coated black. Both styles have satin finished blades of N690 steel that are 3 inches (77mm) in length from the tip to the forward-most aspect of the frame and are 0.118-inch (3mm) thick. The handles of the knives are 3.94 inches (100mm) long. This gives the knife an overall open length of 6.97 inches (177mm).

The Ace Clyde should make a worthy EDC blade.

Clyde Is In GiantMouse’s ACE Knives Line

GiantMouse was formed when Danish knife designers Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes got together with American entrepreneur Jim Wirth. Many of the GiantMouse designs are available only in once-only, limited-production runs. However the company’s ACE line of knives, including the Clyde, are not only more affordable, but don’t have a limited production run.
