The ACE Grand is GiantMouse's EDC-friendly version of the popular GM5. With the GM5, GiantMouse 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. This exclusive version featured a Red G10 Handle 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. This exclusive also features a Vanadis 4E steel blade (Böhler-Uddeholm's version of CPM-4V) and was designed to be perfect for all-around use. 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. GiantMouse states these are at a 58-60 HRC. This is at the lower end of the optimum range of Vanadis 4E, but is still more than high enough for optimal blade performance.
Böhler-Uddeholm Vanadis 4Extra SuperClean has high wear and chipping resistance with very good ductility. All that translates into very good knife steel. In the small knives and folders, Vanadis 4E can reach 66-67HRC, and its performance is just superb. At lower hardness, it still outperforms lots of popular alloys for large blades. if corrosion resistance is not a concern, one of the best choices for knives.
