    Just opened my Instagram at lunch. Mr. Seifert is holding the very first ever GSO 12 fresh off the bevel grinder.
    Aren't there customers in the queue who PAID IN FULL still waiting on their knives from YEARS ago?
    Shouldn't he be finishing those orders? Oh, that's right, members here have already explained the vaporware sales and the selling of knives two or three times that don't exist and never will.
    Great news for the fanboys and shills. The secondary market will have some for sale in the coming days at double the price, and the "seconds" will be on the website soon, ready to purchase, as long as you're willing to wait "up to 90 days" for "assembly". IIRC, these retailed at about $350.00 so that will be another HUGE infusion of cash on those sales. I guess they'll have a nice Christmas.
    I also noticed there was no place to leave a comment on Instagram for his post. At least for me there wasn't. ;)

    Absolutely disgusting. That, that right there is why those scumbags Guy and Ellie got their asses kicked out of here. You've hit it 100% on the head. Someone who ordered a knife 4 years ago should be asking "Why was the steel (that I paid for) used to make a GSO 12, and not my knife? Why did Guy take some unstated amount of time from the 1,440 minutes he's given on this earth every day in making THAT knife when I've been waiting for years for my knife I already paid in full for? Where did the money I paid those years ago go? What did they buy/pay for instead of getting me my knife?"

    This is why they have shrunk their social media presence to just small avenues they can control. They have blocked quite a few people on IG for daring to ask questions like those, and it's not just you. No one can comment on their IG posts, because these exact questions would probably make up 90% of the responses.

    We can all report their page as inappropriate. See if the Instagram algorithm works.

    Yes, in the drop down for "Reason for report" the "Scam or Fraud" choice seems to be the appropriate one.

    Aaahhhhh, got to smack around one of the old guard apologists in Gen Pop. It's like some people keep hoping all of this will just blow over and people will forget all that S?K has done. It always gives me a smile when I see this thread still near the top of this section.

    I had some time to kill the other night and took a read through some of the threads in their now closed forum. To some degree it is almost comical but also infuriating and I am NOT financially invested !!! To me it looked like a combination of a shell game and Stockholm Syndrome among some of the regulars. It's worth noting that some of the loudest voices carrying the torch for Survive? have also fallen away from the forum along with them.

    I noticed that too. I don’t see some of the old S!K guys around anymore.

    The survive website is reopened for preorders on various sk and gso models. Full payment up front, with no expected delivery date. Should give them the funds to put out the 2015 orders. Maybe.

    More than likely it's just to generate some Christmas cash. If they were worried about those orders from 2015, they wouldn't be working on anything else, especially putting out the first model of the GSO 12!
