Though Denmark’s Frømandskorpset (Frogman’s Corps) military unit has existed for over six decades, only 300 men have ever been counted amongst their ranks — including Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik. The true definition of elite, these warriors require gear that can stand up to an unrivaled level of punishment. So when GiantMouse, a knife brand helmed by legendary designers Jesper Voxnaes and Jens Ansø, was approached for the job, they knew they had to make something truly special.
Called The Renae, this magnificent fighting fixed blade does not disappoint by any measure. It boasts a straight edge 5.5″ blade with a serrated spine crafted from N690 Cobalt high-performance steel (renowned for its durability and edge retention) mated to a sturdy and lightweight FRN handle, which stays grippy even when wet. And each one comes with a Kydex sheath for quick and easy storage. Best of all, each one sold sends a donation to the Conventus Ranae (which translates to “an assembly of frogs”), a brotherhood founded to support and assist current and former frogmen and their families. The Ranae is priced at $225 apiece.
