Corte Madera, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- GiantMouse, a small knifemaker out of California with its roots in Denmark, has been producing high-quality knives for the past few years. During this time they’ve established a cult following and some truly diehard fans of their products. These supporters are adamant that the small company brings small production quality and precision at a price-point most can afford.
Many of the knifemaker’s blades are huge with EDC enthusiasts, and their latest offering appears to continue that tradition. Simply called, Clyde, the folding blade features a handsome brass handle with modern geometric cuts. It’s a very classy-looking piece for sure. The folks over at GiantMouse released the following wacky description:
Meet Clyde…More “folk” than “lore.”More “urban” than “legend.”More “goofus” than “gallant.”Maybe it’s our fault that Clyde turned out the way he did. After all, we did name him after our favorite watering hole in Portland, “The Clyde Common”, located at the ACE Hotel in Pearl district. And we did create him as a mix of Scandinavia meets Japan and flirts with the Persians – no good lovechild could come from that….or could it? Well, we surely think so!The brass Clyde has a slim, pointy and slightly upswept blade in M390 steel. The handle looks smaller than it feels, just like Clyde claims in other matters, and the ergonomics of the knife may surprise you given its simple lines.
We think that Clyde is the perfect EDC knife, and, if you haven’t noticed yet, it has a ton of attitude that will set it apart!
