The slipjoint may be the most universal pocket knife ever to exist, familiar to generations of users. Your father probably carried one and your grandfather almost certainly owned one. Today, GiantMouse is introducing the ACE Farley Slipjoint.
The ACE Farley Slipjoint’s Design And History
Designers Ansø and Vox’s simple yet beautiful take on the slipjoint, with lines and details designed to evoke an appreciation for finer things. The Danish knife designers made sure to bring forth a tool that will yield pride of ownership.
The ACE Farley slipjoint was named after a restaurant bar found at Cavallo Point in Sausalito, California. Located at the Northern base of the Golden Gate Bridge, Cavallo Point was once home to Fort Baker, a 1905 U.S. Army Post. The founding partners, Jens Ansø, Jesper Voxnaes, and Jim Wirth initially went to the Farley to experience the unique view and deep-rooted history, but found themselves back again and again for the live music, draft beer, and amazing oysters.
Design Specifications for the Farley
Available in both Green Canvas Micarta and solid Brass scales, the Farley sports a Böhler M390 microclean stainless steel satin-finished blade.
Blade length is 2.75“ (70mm), measured from tip to forward-most aspect of the frame, and 0.118″ (3mm) thick. The handle is 3.625” (92mm) long, giving the knife an overall length of 6.4” (162.6mm). The Green Canvas Micarta version weighs in at 2oz (58.3g,) and as expected, the Brass is a bit heavier, weighing in at 3.5oz (98.4g).
