Introducing the Sonoma V2 Blackout and Prybar

East Lansing, Michigan, January 13, 2022 – The GiantMouse Sonoma V2 has gone to the dark side. First introduced in 2021 in Green and Natural Canvas Micarta, the V2 was designed as an outdoor working liner-lock with rounded scales. As with the original Sonoma, the V2 is manufactured by Reate Knives.

With its slim profile and comfortable ergos, the Sonoma V2 has become a favorite “go-to” folder for outdoor adventurers. Perfect for day-hikes or week-long backpacking trips, the Sonoma V2 packs light but will perform heavy cutting tasks along the way.

This new version of the Sonoma V2 sports black G10 scales, a brass back spacer, and a black PVD Elmax blade.

The Elmax blade, with a Black PVD finish, is 3.4” (87.3mm) in length, and 0.138″ (3.5mm) thick. The handle is 4.5″ (114.3mm) long, giving it an overall length of 8.” (203.2mm). The Sonoma V2 Blackout weighs in at 3oz (85g). 

While it’s not a knife, the GiantMouse Caplifter / Prybar tool is one sharp design!

This multifunctional tool designed by Anso and Vox is perfect for use as a key fob. By adding a split ring, it allows you to hang your keys in your pocket using the integrated side clip. And when it comes time to pop the cap off of a cool drink, it’ll be your go to opener!

Available in both Bronze and Titanium, the Prybar is 3/16” (4.8mm) thick, 3.07” (78mm) in length, 1.3” (33mm) in width, and weighs in at 1.8oz (51g).

    I love this knife design and have wanted one for a while. But I can’t get over that it’s made in China.
