The Biblio is a stout EDC folder in the GiantMouse ACE Line. Building on the design of the popular GM1, this knife is a capable flipper that delivers solid cutting performance in outdoor and urban environments alike. Its handle is ergonomically contoured. The blade is made from quality steel with a thin flat grind and a fine cutting edge for easy slicing. The design with dual choils and a section of jimping mid-spine allow acute blade control and grip security.

I received this knife today. It is a beautiful knife and it by far the best quality knife in my collection. The description states that it has a stonewash finish, but it is definitely satin and shows fingerprints and smudges easily. Still, it's a great knife. The action is very good and the blade is incredible! The jimping on the flipper tab is a bit sharp.
I got mine direct from GiantMouse before they became available here on BladeHQ. This knife is gorgeous, the micarta looks great and feels good in the hand, with a not very aggressive texture. Ergonomics are perfect. I have medium hands and can get 3.5 finger grip or a full 4 finger grip if I shit my index finger up to the choil. The flipper tab works very well and I like the wire pocket clip. Sits very well in the pocket and deploys easily. Came super sharp out of the box and fit and finish is fantastic. You will not be disappointed if you can get one.
I've been looking for the Ace Biblio for a while, but they sell out quickly, particularly the micarta versions. When the latest one became available, I jumped on it quickly. I want to know if the knife meets the hype. It's a bit smaller than I expected, but I love this knife. It has rounded scales, rather than flat, which helps you wrap your hand around it for a more secure grip. The flipper requires just the right amount of effort to deploy the blade, which was extremely sharp out of the box. You can't complain about Bohler M390 steel for the blade. I like a fat blade, and this one has plenty of height. When a blade has that semi-circular cutout for a finger choil, I round off the very end of the blade. This gives you a bit more peace of mind when you put your index finger into the cutout. Workmanship on this knife is excellent. So, yeah, the knife equals the hype. I understand why these are so popular.
I love this knife. It’s small enough to use in the lunchroom or in the office copy room without appearing threatening, but absolutely robust enough to accomplish real work in a warehouse environment. After five days of cutting everything from thick cardboard to plastic hose to light food prep, the M390 blade still slices through paper with precision. It’s a bruiser for a smallish EDC but manages to pull off a certain dignity with the beautifully contoured micarta scales that have already aged nicely. My one and only complaint is the jimping on the lock bar cutout is a little too aggressive for even my heavily calloused thumb, but it’s not bothersome enough to take off any points. Any issues that were pointed out in the first couple production runs of this model have been remedied. This pocket knife might be the perfect companion for someone who does equal parts labor and boardroom meetings in their day to day life. It carries great, feels good in hand, and looks very handsome. I highly recommend it.
Good: Multiple useful opening methods for left and right hand use. Linerlock is not a hot-spot. Micarta is nice. Carry is okay in the pocket. Nice chamfering all around* Great: The M390 has performed as expected during testing. The ergonomics are very good. The fit and finish are very good as well. Bad: *Thumb hole needs chamfering. The blade doesn't slice as well as I hoped, but it is still just okay. Ugly: The addition of the flipper tab is pointless, because of the very weak detent.
The burgundy scales make it even less "dangerous" and a good conversation starting. Good build, extremely sharp out-of-factory. Some negatives: the gimping on the lock bar can be a little annoying. The opening needs a couple of day to let itself work in and be smooth.
Action out of the box was bad. Micarta looks good. Might need to take it apart and clean it but I think I will return it because I am not confident in how much I like this $175 knife. Flipper tab isn't useable at the state it is in right now but the thumb hole works fine. Ergos are great but in the pocket the knife isn't the best. Also why a deep carry wire clip but it isn't deep carry? Love Vox knives and the ergos are great in hand.
