Description

Description

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 17-4PH 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.


Production and Delivery Information:

The GSO-4.5 is in production right now.  For the most up to date information check our Production Schedule page. 

Delivery estimates will be updated as soon as the new 5-axis mill arrives and we can get accurate run times for all of the machines.  For the first time ever we have complete control over the production process and everything is working toward a common goal.  Even though we are still getting caught up, new orders will not take nearly as long as previous preorders have.


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.


Disclaimer:

- You are not required to purchase a kydex sheath with your order but it is HIGHLY recommended that you do so.
- This model is currently still in production, orders will not be ready to ship for several months.
