The "Sonoma" is the latest design in our ACE line of unlimited production knives. If you've seen photos of the Sonoma on Instagram or FaceBook, it should come as no surprise that much of our inspiration for this model came from the GiantMouse GM3, a sleek gentleman’s folder which was very well received by our customers in 2017.
Even though the Sonoma is part of our ACE line, we decided to go all out on this first release produced by our newest manufacturer, Reate Knives. We designed it with a milled titanium skeletonized clip, rather than the standard ACE line wire clip, and anodized titanium pivot collars and backspacer similar to what we’ve done on the limited edition GM line knives. Two versions of the Sonoma will be available upon release - one in stonewashed titanium with a satin finished blade, and one in PVD titanium with a fine stonewashed blade.
Our decision on the name for this elegant folder is a nod to Sonoma County which lies just north of GiantMouse’s headquarters in Marin County, California. Sonoma is known for its scenic beauty - rolling hills and valleys, acres upon acres of vineyards, and over 250 wineries. The alluring landscape, along with no end to amazing food and wine, make Sonoma an ideal place for the GiantMouse Team to get our creative juices flowing.
