The SURVIVE! GSO-8 came into existence because of customer demand and user feedback. A group of SURVIVE! fans were looking for a camp knife that would be useful for a variety of general tasks but still large and robust enough to be chop-able; Something that would have much of the capability of the larger GSO-10 but in a more compact package. This design began as a creative challenge but since its completion the GSO-8 has quickly become one of our favorite designs. 

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.

Production and Delivery Information:

The last knives from the GSO-8 production run are in stock now. These are built and ready for immediate delivery. 

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.

Camp God
Written by Charles Kane on Feb 18th 2023

I have a good amount of high-end knives. They range from 240-650 dollars. However, this knife blows them all away. The fit, finish and attention to detail are second to none. I wanted a 8 inch knife to use as a camp knife and this thing does not disappoint!

GSO-8 review

Upon taking delivery I was shocked at the fit and finish on this knife. Pictures don't do it justice. Survive! says they have high standards, that really doesn't say it. I immediately placed another order.
