    I hear you about beating on them. Guy just is making them too pristine as he is getting more experience. The 2nds with the exception of those extra divot stamps behind the handle scales are also very pristine knives. Hope you'll be getting you 4.7 preorder fulfilled when they get back to the workshop in July.

    There will still be some work happening in June, just not all month. We only have one car so Guy will actually be stuck at the shop when my friend is here in a couple of weeks. I will still be in and out of the shop at that time too, so there will be some things going out. Guy will also be around the last week of June.

    Haha that's exactly what I'm thinking. I may have to fondle it and appreciate the beauty of it for a day before I give it a whooping. I have a few Cypress trees that are waiting to be taken down by the 4.7.
    I'm ok with waiting how ever long it takes. I just want the team to be able breathe a little bit this month even though the circumstances aren't good.

    Now you're rubbing it in (lol). Lesson to myself, know my handle color selection prior as soon as I drop the order in the basket on these Monday sales. Good to hear some of you all were able to get in on one of these past few Mondays.

    Beautiful! Similar, and yet very different as well. Do you have a favorite between the two?

    ETA: I think we've got the same flooring, ha!

    So does 3V just look like the blade in that 4.1 over time, or is that a tumbled finish? I love it - has the lived in look - but I also love the bead blasted finish the new 3V has. Just curious what it looks like over time.

    TR that's the tumbled finish, it I love it. I'm excited to see the new finish.

    Yeah they do! I bet those scales would look great on a Cruforge 4.7.

    Heck yeah, that would look awesome with the coating that's on those cru forge 4.7s!

    Here is the 4.7 from the 9th after I swapped the camo g-10 for the walnut from TRfromMT.
    I like the handle contouring/size of this knife best of all the gso's. A very worthy gso 5 replacement model, and I like my 5 a lot!

    my factory second has arrived and the only detectable flaw is a few minuscule finish scuffs. the 4.7 is exactly what I'm looking for in an edc fixed blade, I'm sure the 4.5 and 4.1 are also perfect options and I may have to snag a 4.1 when they become available. sad news is no micro texture. the coyote sheath is nice. here are the obligatory photos:

    Also received mine in the mail today :)

    Opened it up and it is wonderful, brilliant, fantastic and running out of superlatives as my A.D.D. has quickly shifted to the 4.7. Oh and before I forget in my state of self indulgence: THANK YOU TEAM SURVIVE!

    I don't think that my Ghost Jade is microtextured, but that's fine. I can always buy more handle scales later on. This blade fits me better than the GSO 5.1 and I'm going to be offering my 5.1 on the Exchange soon.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU by infinitude :D
