I haven’t posted in a bit, but I had to show off my newest edition.. This is the GM1 by GiantMouse Knives.
GiantMouse knives are designed by Danish knife makers Jesper Voxnaes and Jens Ansø, and are limited to 400 pieces per model. 300 are a “standard version”, while the other 100 are a special version of the same design. You can read more about their backstory on their website in the link above.
I have been kicking myself since the day the GM1 sold out, because I had multiple opportunities to purchase one online from the GiantMouse website. For whatever reason (being too cheap, I imagine) I passed on getting one of these incredible knives. I’ve been on the hunt ever since. Normally, by the time I found one for sale, it was long gone. I just happened to be talking to someone who had been thinking about selling his, and he made me a great deal for this one.
Fortunately, this GM1 was in almost perfect condition, so it was like getting a new one from GiantMouse themselves. Here is a bit more about the knife –
The blade is 3.3” long and made from N609 steel. The handle is titanium with blue anodized titanium clip, backspacer and pivot ring. It has a ball bearing pivot and the action is perfectly smooth. It has a pretty solid feel to it, weighing about 5.4oz.
GiantMouse has some awesome designs, but I can tell the GM1 is going to be a favorite of mine for a long time. If you are interested in the GM2 or GM3, they are both still available on their site at the time of this post.
