As with all SURVIVE! Knives, this thing has a wicked sharp edge. With the heat treat on the M-390 it has maintained a killer edge with all the stuff we have thrown at it.
I've gotten canvas micarta on all of my previous SURVIVE! Knives and like them very much. This go-around I wanted to try the G-10 offering. The G-10 is a high visibility orange. Which is a nice attribute in a survival knife, in the case you drop it on the forest floor. It will help in finding or retrieving your most critical survival tool. I've had G-10 grips on a few of my knives in the past and have always enjoyed it. SURVIVE!'s G-10 has the look of a canvas micarta which is aesthetically pleasing. It's also very smooth and has an overall great fit and finish.
The sheath has a new drain "canal" that runs down the center of the sheath. Other than that it has all the same features as before. Take a look at our previous reviews for more information about them.
I've carried the GSO-4.1 as my EDC since receiving it. Tackling a variety of task ranging from survival type stuff to cutting boxes open and everything in between. I couldn't be happier with this knife and look forward to seeing what SURVIVE! has planned for the future. Oh, and it will continue to remain my EDC knife.
SURVIVE! Knives has some killer pre-sale promotions and if they continue, I highly suggest you taking advantage of them.
We will have a video review in the next coming weeks.
