Founded in 2015 by renowned Danish designers Jens Ansø and Jesper Voxnaes, GiantMouse has quickly developed a reputation as one of the country’s leading boutique knife brands, with an ever-growing range of thoroughly utilitarian yet accessible-priced fixed blades and folders — the latest of which is the pint-sized GiantMouse ACE Nibbler.
Taking its name from the nappy-wearing baby mouse on the cartoon Tom and Jerry, the ACE Nibbler represents GiantMouse’s smallest model to date. Despite its size, however, the Nibbler manages to afford some real utility, punching well above its weight. Measuring just 4.7” overall, the Nibbler features a 2.76” handle with a bearing-equipped pivot, a reversible bent wire pocket clip, and a hardened 420 stainless steel liner lock. The handle is mated to a 2.0” (0.115″ thick) workhorse of a modified Wharncliffe blade which is deployed via a uniquely-shaped thumb-hole opening.
This compact EDC knife is also being produced in a myriad of different versions. This includes an aluminum-handled-spec with an aluminum backspacer and a Böhler N690 blade that is available in red, blue, or green anodized color options. GiantMouse is also offering a more premium variant with a natural Micarta handle, a brass backspacer, and a super-high-end CPM 20CV blade. At the top of the range is a titanium-scaled version that also boasts a 20CV “super steel” blade construction and a brass backspacer.
The GiantMouse ACE Nibbler is available now, with pricing set at $95 for the aluminum and N690 versions, $155 for the Micarta and 20CV variant, and $185 for the top-of-the-line titanium and 20CV spec. And, as per usual, $10 from each knife sold by GiantMouse will be donated to the Save The Children charity.
