Please note: We will be updating delivery timelines for each model in the next few weeks.  In addition to regular production, there is a lot happening in the workshop right now.  Millit is in the process of packing up and moving to their own shop space so SURVIVE! can continue to expand and optimize our production flow.  The shop is a wreck right now but we are still getting work done with it as is.  As Millit departs, we will have some new equipment landing and plan to move things around for better efficiency.  For the first time ever, we will be one unitized shop, focused solely on SURVIVE! production.  We will finally be able to give you folks accurate projections that we know are attainable.

If you would like more information about the delays and why we've had troubles with delivery estimates in the past we put together a long video to talk about it.  You can find that on our YouTube channel: here.

  • TSK:
    • blades are at surface grinding
    • handles will be getting cut from extra material that is too thin for other models
    • This is a very small batch run that is being worked on during gaps in larger production scheduling.  With these knives being smaller in size as well as overall numbers they will be completed more quickly than other models.
  • GSO-5.1
    • blades are wrapping up at perimeter machining
    • all handle materials are in stock
    • fasteners are on order
  • EDC-2: The first batch of these are perimeter machined and are being heat treated soon. 
    • Because these blades were specifically designed to reduce waste, they are not pulling materials from other models.  We are also taking care to make sure they do not impact regular production.  This is a very small batch run that is being worked on during gaps in larger production scheduling.  With these knives being smaller in size as well as overall numbers they will be completed more quickly than other models.
  • GSO-4: Steel sheets will be on the water jet as the schedule allows
  • GSO-3: These will be cutting along side the GSO-4.
  • GSO-4.7/GSO-5.5 cutting is scheduled to begin shortly.

Please note:

 - There is a lot going on in the SURVIVE! Workshop these days.  We are doing our best to get through existing preorders, but it will take several weeks from when preorders for a particular model start shipping out, until they are all fulfilled.

 - In addition to being a small team, the building table is also the shipping table, so we have to work on things in batches.
