This Blade HQ Exclusive ACE Nazca has a black micarta handle and a black PVD finished blade.
For knife designers Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes, the conversation always winds its way to "lines"—the lines of a knife truly define its comfort, style, and utility. In homage to the most perplexing lines in the world, the Nazca Lines, the GiantMouse Nazca folder combines otherworldly design and the best materials on the market to create a cutter worth keeping. The elongated clip point blade shape provides plenty of piercing tip for precision projects like cutting zip-ties, and the new cross-bar lock mechanism allows you to safely close the blade without compromising lockup strength. The Nazca is finished off with the signature brass backspacer of most GiantMouse knives for a folder that considers even the smallest details!
The Nazca is precision manufactured by Bestech Knives, one of the premier production firms in China.
GiantMouse has some serious design horsepower, creating beautiful and accessible knives as well as collectible items like beads. Take a look at the products we carry from GiantMouse!
One of the best knives I own. My go to daily.
This knife is razor sharp out of the box. I'm surprised more people didn't jump on this on its release day because it's truly an amazing knife. It's also very well balanced and flicks open very easily with no hangup. Highly recommended.
This is my first GiantMouse knife. It’s really great. The lock feels different from benchmades axis lock but feels rock solid. The m390 stays sharp and the blade shape is aggressive, and sweeping tip always gets comments and attention, so maybe not the greatest office/gentleman’s carry. Unlike other reviews I was really happy with the micarta and the curving profile of the scales fits my grip perfectly.
Just an amazing knife. Axis lock done better than any Benchmade I’ve had. Fit and finish is top notch, absolutely no blade play, perfect centering, and super snappy and smooth action. Not to mention the looks! Way better than any giant mouse I’ve had either. This just feels right, not trying to be the lightest knife yet is still a light knife. Pockets very well yet feels substantial in hand. Crazy sharp blade, and quite usable as well.
I am a collector. EDCs in the hand not in the field. Disclosure: GiantMouse knives are a favorite. I already own a Nazca Titanium (love it!); and still I had reservations/mixed feelings about a BladeHQ exclusive as a second Nazca for my collection. Purchased it anyway the moment it dropped. It arrived today speedily. Thank you BladeHQ. The exclusive GiantMouse Nazca in Black Micarta Blackout is gorgeous. I know tastes run subjectively. Granted! And my subjective assessment is this release is superlative. As with all of my GiantMouse EDCs, the fabrication, materials, workmanship, design (Vox/Anso) are pristine. This Nazca Blackout arrived and everything associated with it was fresh, clean, “New”. I inspected the Nazca and was so impressed how impeccably executed it was. The blackout motif is beautiful. The Black Micarta is applied perfectly; and I appreciate that the coloration is NOT dark but a lighter shade of black The metal parts are black, black and the contrast adds an element of elegance as contrasted with an immaculate blacker blade. I am not sure this knife was handled by human hands. It’s just too perfect. Familiar with the bar lock, I actuated it and flicked the blade open with little effort. Same with the thumb studs, which I personally don’t appreciate especially figuring out the angle to get the blade moving. Not so with this model. Thumb studs engage easily and a flick opens the blade as easily as using the bar lock. Thank you, Giant Mouse. The advantage is simple: A perfect blade opens with alacrity and similarly actuated closes like an executive elevator in a hurry. I hate writing this observation but it is probably a concern of potential buyers: My Nazca Blackout Closes as if perfectly calibrated and the blade is centered. When opened there is no play in the blade when extended. The jimping further along the spine of the blade is advantageously farther along and though a collector, the blade jimping enhances a feeling of confidence holding the Nazca. The handles are very comfortable. The pocket clip is deep and does not intrude on comfort. The cost is justified given both the fabricator, Bestech Knives (I just got the name’s meaning) though a Chinese company is highly accomplished and consistent as well as knowing (again as a collector) that my model is an exclusive, and no matter the number of models available, this knockout of a blackout comes highly recommended. So glad I ignored my reservations and purchased the Nazca Blackout. Thank you BladeHQ for finding a full-proof method for getting me to add to my collection that I find highly-desirable. If I had the chance to do it all over again, I would!
I do not know what to say. The lock isn’t as smooth as Benchmade but I’m still happy. The only real disappointment I had was with Micarta. A little smooth for my taste. No complaints otherwise.
Had my eye on this,and picked it up during the holiday sales. Received it promptly, but it failed out of the box. I'm guessing an "omega" spring was broke. Tried to get a replacement Nazca, but BladeHQ doesn't do replacements and they didn't really let me know that in the return process, so everything got messed up. I won't order another one. Pretty disappointed all around.
