The last chance preorder is closing soon and GSO-4.5 is about to begin production.  Please keep an eye on the SURVIVE! production schedule for estimated completion dates for each knife model. You can also check us out on Instagram, for regular photo and video updates.

The GSO-4.5 Bushcraft variant: This blade is specifically designed to excel at slicing and carving tasks. With a .115" blade thickness, the GSO-4.5 Bushcraft is notably thinner for a knife of this size. The blade also features a fine cutting edge, for a deeper bite and greater slicing efficiency. The blade tip is also more acute than other SURVIVE! models, for more effectively handling delicate carving work. The handle shape and length have been optimized to reduce hand fatigue and eliminate hot spots during extended carving sessions. The bushcraft version of this knife has a very thin blade and acute cutting edge, so heavy batoning and prying are not recommended. 

The GSO-4.5 Standard variant: If you like the shape of GSO-4.5 but have heavier use in mind, please consider the Standard variant. This blade features thicker .150" blade stock and robust grind geometry that is better suited for more abusive cutting chores.

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.
