    Yeah I was thinking it might be small due to photos but was hoping for a 3.4” blade.

    Oh well, it made it an easy decision for me to not get one.

    Love the Sonoma and there's every reason to believe this model will exhibit the same high quality. However I have to agree with others about the short blade; it would have been awesome if it were closer to 3.5".

    Im with you, I like the design and blade, made in china is not a problem as long as its great quality coming from Reate, but the blade size is way too small for me, bummer

    This looks great. I just wish they'd drop the Limited Edition game, as they have for the ACE line.

    You are probably sitting on something made in China right now. Don't fall...

    Not disappointing to those looking for a smaller knife...

    One of the things I've noticed (esp after a few very recent IG teases) is that I think ultimately they're going to go the route of eventually adapting all or most of their GM models into the ACE line as an ongoing production version. You have a couple of these already in the Biblio/GM1 and the Sonoma/GM3. They've also teased a couple models on IG that are ACE models of the GM2 and GM5.

    Not that I think that solves the whole problem of the limited edition thing, but I do think, if they do the ACE models right, like they did with the Sonoma, we could be in a nice position of getting to see some of those great designs in the GM line at a more affordable price, dressed up in canvas micarta. I certainly hope that's the route they continue to go, at least.

    Yep, I think they should Limit the Limited Editions. I think I heard someone say that once, somewhere.

    Seriously...
    Remove all of the Chinese made parts from your car and see how far you get.;)

    And <3" blade on something labelled "Giant" is quite the misnomer.
    I was looking forward to something in the 3.5" range.
    Oh well, plenty of other Reates in my size preference.

    An integral in the 3.5” range is actually kind of rare...

    They probably made it <3" just to appeal to you specifically, before your LE ban ;)

    I'd like to see a comparison w/ the Matt Diskin IDF.

    GiantMouse 'Pirate' editions are just more limited. Same materials, but black finishes and a different logo.
