Following on the success of the original Sonoma frame-lock folder in Titanium, GiantMouse has launched the ACE Sonoma V2, as a liner-lock with rounded canvas Micarta scales.

GiantMouse Sonoma V2 Great For Outdoorsmen

The Sonoma V2 has been in the works for quite some time. The original Sonoma frame-lock was designed as an urban utility folder with flat titanium scales. For V2, the company designed an outdoor working liner-lock with rounded canvas Micarta scales. With its slim profile and comfortable grip, the Sonoma V2 is bound to become a favorite “go-to” folder for outdoor adventurers. Perfect for day-hikes or week-long backpacking trips, the Sonoma V2 packs light but will perform heavy cutting tasks along the way.

The new ACE Sonoma V2 is configured as an all-around folder with 3.4-inch blade.

GiantMouse Sonoma V2 Has Micarta Scales

The Sonoma V2 is available in Green Canvas Micarta with Brass Backspacer and Satin Finished Blade, and Natural Canvas Micarta with Titanium Backspacer and Stonewash Finished Blade. Both feature Elmax blade steel, ball bearing pivot, and steel liner-lock. The blades are 2.44 inches (62mm) in length, measured from tip to forward-most aspect of the frame, and are 0.118-inch (3mm) thick. The handles are 3.375 inches (85.73mm) long, giving the Riv an overall length of 5.75 inches (146mm).

The knife features a wire pocket clip and micarta scales.

Sonoma V2 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 Sonoma V2, are not only more affordable, but don’t have a limited production run.
