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, we've brought 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.

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.

Review from overseas

I ordered a 4.7 and waited quite a while. more than six months. during this time the contact to the servie was extraordinary. fast, freindly and exact. had some trouble with the taxes and some extra costs, but that is a german problem not one of the survive! knive bros :) The knive itself is absolutly worth every penny. It is so precisely made, I couldn´t find anything to mention. It was razorsharp and fits great to my hand. it´s ergonomy is great for all kind of cutting, chopping and even prying and it showed no weaknesses, till now. that is quite a half year now. tracking, bushcrafting and all other possibilities, I found to use this great tool! the sheath is a bit bulky, but very reliable and perfect in fit! the 4.7 became my favorite knive and I have some good peaces in my collection. a busse, tops, boker, ZT... so I can tell you: GET ONE!!!
