The GSO-4.1s are being finished up in our workshop. They will be available for regular order once all existing preorders and presale orders have been fulfilled. Please keep an eye on the Production Schedule for regular updates.
Working with over two years of user feedback on this model, 2015 is bringing some very subtle but exciting changes to the popular SURVIVE! GSO-4.1. We've deepened the finger pocket just a bit and enhanced the handle profile contouring for improved retention and control over the knife. The handle has been lengthened slightly for greater comfort and to increase the user compatibility range. Lastly, we are moving from a skeletonized tang to a solid tang on the GSO-4.1.
The SURVIVE! GSO-4.1 is a lightweight, highly versatile knife, capable of tackling most any cutting chore with ease. One of our smaller full sized fixed blades, the GSO-4.1 provides outstanding comfort, strength and utility in a package that won't weigh you down.
Our high quality Torx T-25 style fasteners are precision machined from 416 stainless steel. Key features of the kydex sheaths include: excellent retention, drain channels, and several attachment options with slots and eyelets, in addition to the kydex clip. The peened finish on the blade provides extra durability and is non-reflective. The spine is sharp enough for use with most ferro rods.
- You are not required to purchase a kydex sheath with your order but it is HIGHLY recommended that you do so.
- We do not have a set delivery date for preordered knives, be sure to sign up for our newsletter to receive regular production updates.
A bit about the steel used in SURVIVE! Knives:
CPM-3V is a high alloyed tool steel, made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, that has a very high impact toughness and excellent edge holding. Being made with the CPM process, this steel is also very resistant to lateral stress (flex) breakage, making it a perfect choice for a high performance, hard use knife. CPM-3V is not a stainless alloy and can stain if not cared for. Check out the CPM-3V Data Sheet.
CPM-20CV is a very high quality martensitic stainless steel, with outstanding corrosion resistance and excellent edge holding. CPM-20CV does lack the impact toughness of CPM-3V but being made with the CPM process, this steel is still very resistant to lateral stress (flex) breakage. Consider CPM-20CV for a very low maintenance, all weather cutting tool. Here is the CPM-20CV Data Sheet.

So I haven't tested this blade out yet, this is a review more so on the customer service end, with the knife features. The weight is extremely well balanced, the finish is perfect. I ordered these for groomsman in my wedding. Guy stepped up huge, customized to last day, daily phone calls and texts. His service was amazing, well worth the money, and then some. G n E truly went out of their own way to help me out, and I must say, that service has earned a life time customer.
