The GiantMouse FARLEY-BLUE-G10:
The slip joint may be the most ubiquitous type of pocketknife ever. Your father probably carried one. Your grandfather almost certainly carried one. It’s very likely that your mother even had one rattling around in her purse.
So when GiantMouse began to design their take on the slip joint, they incorporated our collective feelings of responsibility to prior generations of slip joint users to get it right – to produce a beautiful yet straightforward non-locking folder that would be sure to please.
Lines are essential, especially to Danish designers. So the “lines” or shape of the Farley were designed to evoke an appreciation for finer things and pride of ownership as it catches your attention while sitting on your desk.
The function is important, especially to Danish knife designers. So the Farley was designed with a stop pin on the close side to prevent the blade from touching the spring if closed hard.
A strong steel wire clip will hold the knife securely in your pocket and can be moved to the opposite scale for the lefties among us.
The spring strength was tested on several sample iterations until the team felt it was just right.
At GiantMouse, details are always important. So the blade and spring on the Farley were designed with radiused spines.
To allow for optimal grip when pulling the knife from your pocket, we machined “cut-outs” on the scales on each side of the jimping.
And the jimping itself is a detail GiantMouse is proud of and knows will be pleasing to both sight and touch.
