Description

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 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 satin stonewash finish on the blade provides extra durability while maintaining a sharp enough spine 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.


Production and Delivery Information:

The GSO-5.1 blades are back from heat treat and going through the final stages of production now. Orders placed now will be fulfilled in the next couple of months, along with other existing preorders.

For the most up to date information check our Production Schedule page. 


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 MagnaCut is an innovative new stainless steel from Crucible.  It has an excellent combination of toughness and wear resistance, along with improved corrosion resistance.  Here is the CPM MagnaCut Data Sheet.

SURVIVE! proudly supports Peters' Heat Treating for all of our heat treating needs.

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.
