As you know, we are all living in a strange new world because of the current coronavirus pandemic. Through these uncertain times we will be doing everything we can to stay on schedule and will update delivery estimates if necessary. For now, we are fully stocked on the materials that we need and are still in the workshop to keep production moving. Please see our Covid-19 information page for full details.
 

In Finishing:

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

  • GSO-7/7: The last orders are shipping out in batches, as time allows. Right now packing and shipping is happening every Sunday, when the shop is empty and risk to Ellie is minimal.
  • GSO-3.5: With the GSO-7/7 production wrapped up, we're turning our full attention to getting the GSO-3.5 orders completed. We expect these to ship out through April.
  • GSO-3.5 Factory 2nds: We're a little behind on these but are expecting to be caught up in the next few weeks.

In Production:

(in the heavy machining stages)

  • GSO-12: Blades are being bevel ground, with an estimated completion date of May-June.
  • GSO-6 : Blades are about to begin surface grinding, with an estimated completion date of May-June.
  • GSO-4.5: Blades will soon begin surface grinding, with an estimated completion date of June-July.
  • GSO-10: About to go to heat treat, with an estimated completion date of July-August.
  • GSO-8: About to go to heat treat, with an estimated completion date of July-August.
  • GSO-5.1: These are wrapping up perimeter machining, with an estimated completion date of August-September.
  • SURVIVE! TSK and EDC-2: The first batch of these are perimeter machined and will be leaving for heat treat asap. Estimated completion date for these is June-July.
  • GSO-4: Steel will be on the water jet ASAP, with an estimated completion date of September-October.
  • GSO-3: These will be cutting along side the GSO-4, with an estimated completion date of September-October.
  • GSO-4.7/GSO-5.5 cutting is scheduled to begin shortly. These have an estimated completion date of November-December.

Future Production:

We've made the decision to temporarily suspend production beyond the GSO-4.7 and GSO-5.5. After the models that are currently in production are wrapped up, we will be taking a break for a bit. We'll be back, but on a much more limited basis moving forward.


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.

As the world reacts to covid-19 there are a lot of factors that are beyond our control.  Through these uncertainties we will be doing everything we can to stay on schedule and will update delivery estimates if necessary.  For now, we are fully stocked on the materials that we need and are still in the workshop to keep production moving.  Please see our covid-19 information page for full details.
