The GSO-5.1 is not currently available for sale.  These will be in stock for regular ordering after production has been completed and existing preorders have been fulfilled.

Please sign up for our newsletter and keep an eye on the SURVIVE! production schedule for estimated completion dates.


With the latest design revision we've taken the already outstanding SURVIVE! GSO-5.1 and made it even better. While the blade profile has remained the same, we've lengthened and recontoured the handle a bit to improve comfort and usability over a wider range of users.

The SURVIVE! GSO-5.1, a full sized medium utility knife, is one of the most versatile cutting tools in the SURVIVE! line up. The robust, well balanced design of this tool allows you to tackle a wide variety of tasks with relative ease. The very manageable size and weight of the GSO-5.1 is solid and confident in your hand, without being heavy or feeling bulky.

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.  We utilize the experts at Peters' Heat Treating to provide the most up to date heat treat for all of our blades.

Disclaimer:
- You are not required to purchase a kydex sheath with your order but it is HIGHLY recommended that you do so.
- Preorders do not have a guaranteed delivery date.


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.

5.1s survive!

Really am a fan of Survive! I own more than a couple blades, and I swear by them. The 2nd gen 5.1 is what I own and I'm sad I missed out on the pre order for the new ones, but still I couldn't be happier with the one I own. If you get your hand on one, you wont be disappointed. The best.

AMAZING SERVICE AND BLADE

I saw this blade during a survival course in the Sierra Nevada's. I was hooked. Ordered 4 for my wedding as gifts with the leather sheaths. All 4 of us use these everyday either in the field or in the line of duty. No rust, no flaws, strong blades and amazing craftsman ship. Guy went the distance and because these were custom for a special gift Guy sent video of the process. It was a long wait. I'm placing an order for the next run along with friends who want another one. First class service, first class blade. Thanks Guy, and Semper Fi, to you and Ellie.
