Description

 The last GSO-6 knives are in stock now, ready to be delivered within 5 days.


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.

Disclaimer:
- 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.

Best knife ever

I received my gso 6 in black and orange g10. First of all its fit and finish is impeccable. They kydex is like perfect. Which we all know kydex is hit and miss. The balance and feel is like nothing I have ever experienced before. The finish is absolutely unprecedented. I have put a lot of hours of hard use in a short amount of time. And it still looks brand new. It is just an unbelievably slick peice and super fun to use. The edge retention is outstanding. After all the use I have had with it, it still remains as sharp as it was when I got it. The people over at survive are producing the best knife I have ever had the pleasure of owning. And I'm looking forward to them getting over a lot of the unfortunate setbacks they have had so they can deliver more of their products. Im already in the process of ordering more of their knives and cannot wait to enjoy more of what they do so well. Thank you everyone as survive. And a shout out to Guy, who was super awesome with his customer service and making sure I was totally happy with my purchase. Keep it up survive team. You are amazing.

Bigger and bolder than expected

I just received my order in a little under 2 months (as per shipping times on the website). The GSO 6.0 arrived bigger and bolder than I expected and it's perfect. I was going to order another larger size for around the camp but the 6.0 is a perfect sized knife between field/utility work and a smaller camp chopper. The workmanship is flawless. If you're going to buy one of these I'd recommend buying two since it looks like they're shutting down production for a while. You won't regret it.
