GiantMouse was founded to provide amazing knife designs, with the highest possible production quality, at a fair price, while remaining closely involved with its community of customers. The ACE Clyde knife from GiantMouse was first introduced in 2019 with green canvas Micarta and black G10 scales. Since then, the Clyde has also appeared with natural canvas Micarta and solid brass. Now GiantMouse is releasing two new versions of the Clyde in aluminum.

The design of the Clyde draws from a mix of Scandinavian and Japanese traditions, and also throws in a hint of classic Persian blade. Like many GiantMouse blades, the Clyde is named after a drinking establishment, the GiantMouse team’s favorite watering hole, “The Clyde Common,” located at the ACE Hotel in Portland’s Pearl district.

The Red Aluminum Clyde has a black aluminum backspacer and thumbstud, while the  Black Aluminum Clyde has a red aluminum backspacer and thumbstud. Both versions are liner lock models, with the steel liner PTFE coated black. The N690 Satin Finished blades are 3 inches in length, measured from tip to forward-most aspect of the frame, and are 0.118 inches thick. The handles are 3.94 inches long, giving the Aluminum Clyde an overall length of  6.97 inches. Both of these Aluminum Clyde knives weigh 2.8 ounces each.

High-Tech Handloading

I now keep all my ammunition-creation data on a computer. Sure, I’ll make notes when working up a new load or tweaking an existing one, but ultimately my data is stored digitally. Since my loading room is only steps from my computer, the transition from written to digital data has been easy for me. Now that I’m using the handloading app from RCBS, it’s even easier, and it also makes recreating my favorite loads when I’m at the loading bench more convenient.
