This new model takes the beloved design of its predecessor (the Iona) and transforms it into a strong, reliable outdoor companion. With a wider blade, a longer and more ergonomic handle, enhanced spine jimping, and improved access to the lockbar, the Iona V2 is a stout and functional folding knife that excels in both action and feel.
The Iona V2 adapts to the demands of the outdoors - Its wider Magnacut steel blade can tackle a wide range of tasks while maintaining sharpness. The longer, ergonomic handle ensures a comfortable and secure grip, enabling confident control during use. The addition of spine jimping allows for precision in delicate and demanding situations. Plus, the improved lockbar access allows for quick and easy unlocking, even with your outdoor gloves on. The V2 still embodies the aesthetic appeal of the original Iona, but it’s evolved into a true outdoor tool.
The ACE Iona is named after the Iona Bar, a beloved establishment located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Not just any bar, Iona holds a special place in the hearts of the founders of GiantMouse, being owned by a good friend and serving as a venue where many pleasant hours have been spent.
The naming tradition at GiantMouse Knives extends beyond mere identification - it's a way of infusing each of their products with a unique backstory, reflecting the personal experiences and friendships that are at the core of the brand. With the ACE Iona, you're not just purchasing a high-quality tool, but also a piece of the camaraderie and shared memories that fuel the creative spirit of GiantMouse.
