As we finish up this production run all knives will be built before they are listed for sale. Orders will ship within 15 days from order date.
Taking a year's worth of feedback and never being happy with "good enough", we've completely redesigned the GSO-7/7. With a longer blade, a more generous handle length, and improved ergonomics all around, the SURVIVE! GSO-7/7 is now more capable than ever!
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.
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.
A bit of a misnomer, the GSO-7/7 is the only SURVIVE! model that doesn’t indicate the knife’s approximate blade length. The GSO-7/7 moniker is a dedication in memoriam of my best friend, Nathaniel Allen, who passed away on 7/7/2011.
My Brother, while you may be gone from us now, you will never be forgotten. You were a better friend to me than anyone deserved.
Nathaniel G. Allen: June 5th, 1985- July 7th, 2011
