We've taken the already outstanding SURVIVE! GSO-6 and made it even better. While the blade profile has remained roughly 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-6 is designed for those who like the size of the GSO-5.1 but don't prefer a finger choil. Like the GSO-5.1, it is a full sized medium utility knife, ideally suited to folks with medium to larger hands. 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-6 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 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.
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.
