This was also the way we designed the Biblio, from the lines and concept of the GM1. Of course it would be easier to just scale a knife model up or down to any size you think would sell well, but we dont work that way! Our designers, Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes, grew up spending time out in nature, working the forest and doing chores around the house. They were taught that when you work or hike, you carry a fixed-blade and a small folder. The fixed blade will perform most of the cutting tasks, but the folder should be kept razor sharp for finer tasks and be your back-up, if the fixed-blade is lost or dulls.
These days most good quality folders can handle most of the jobs of a mid-sized fixed-blade, but it is still great to have a sharp back-up. And with the Riv you get a compact folder that will handle most daily cutting jobs, and will surprise you once you get it in hand. A tool, not a gimmick! Weve got a thing for naming our knives after special places that have endeared themselves to us over the years.The Biblios namesake was a favorite watering hole of the GiantMouse team in Brooklyn, where the idea for our new knife brand was formed. The Grand is named for our favorite hotel and bar in Nuremberg. The Clyde is named after the Clyde Commons bar in Portland, which was part of the ACE Hotel, for which our ACE line of knives is named.
Well, in 2020, GiantMouse moved its headquarters from the San Francisco Bay Area to East Lansing, MI. So we felt it only fitting that we should commemorate this event by naming our latest model after an equally meaningful local establishment. Turns out The Riv is an historic local dive bar in East Lansing that was frequented regularly by GiantMouse CEO Jim Wirth while he attended Michigan State University in the second half of the 1980s. The bar is still a local landmark today, and as soon as the Danish contingent of the GiantMouse team can travel again, you can be sure to find us hanging there on the corner of Albert and M. - check next door at Pinball Petes.Locking Mechanism: Titanium Frame lock.
