Description

The GSO-5.5 is about to begin production and is expected to deliver in November-December. 

Based on the new GSO-4.7 design but with the addition of a generous finger choil, the GSO-5.5 is a full sized knife in a very purposeful, compact package. The 5.5" blade features a strong spear point that makes it well suited for a wide variety of tasks. The aggressively contoured handle provides a secure grip in any condition. With a .170" blade thickness this knife is robust enough to tackle even the most demanding cutting chores with confidence. This latest revision features refined handle contouring and a more sleek profile to reduce bulk. If you enjoy the aesthetics of the GSO-5.1 but prefer something a bit lighter and more streamlined, consider the GSO-5.5 for your next adventure.

Our high quality Torx T-25 style fasteners are produced using high quality 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.

Disclaimer:
- 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.

CruForge V is a high performance carbon steel option. This steel is very tough and the small amounts of chromium and vanadium in the alloy result in increased edge holding. This steel is susceptible to rust and corrosion, which is why we offer these blades with a Cerakote finish. Check out the CruForge V data sheet.
