In the Finishing Stages:

(being finished, sharpened, built, and packed up)

  • GSO-7/7: These are the top priority right now.  Preorders are getting built and sharpened.
  • GSO-4.1 and GSO-4 Limited: The very last of these are available now.
  • GSO-3.5: We've been slipping a few blades through surface finishing and handles are being machined. The blades look great and we are anticipating this run to finish out very smoothly and quickly.
  • SK-3.5: These will be finishing up right along with the GSO-3.5 preorders.

*Factory 2nds and Ugly Betty knives will be made available as part of our Monthly Sales, as we come across them while working on fulfilling existing preorders.

***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. The building table is also the shipping table, so we have to work on things in batches.***

In Production:

(in the heavy machining stages)

  • GSO-12 / SK-12: At surface grinding before going onto the bevel grinding machine.
  • GSO-6 / SK-6: Blades are at heat treat.
  • GSO-4.5: At heat treating.
  • GSO-10 / SK-10: Being perimeter machined.
  • GSO-8: Will be starting perimeter machining as soon as a machine opens up.
  • GSO-5.1 / SK-5.1: Sheets of steel are on the water jet
  • SURVIVE! TSK: We have a good amount of these blanks stockpiled and some handle material scraps to work with so they will start perimeter machining soon.

Future Production:

  • We do have steel for the following models and will update their production status as they get closer to cutting:
    • SURVIVE! F1 (Folder #1)
    • EDC-2
    • GSO-5.5
    • EDC-3
    • GSO-4.7
