Eeeny meeny miny mo...
I read through all the comments on the latest Instagram post from Survive, and buried under all the complaints about the lead time was a statement by Guy that the number of preorders tapers off sharply once the 4.1 model is completed. That is encouraging news since they've been shipping the 4.1 since at least March (when I received mine).
They could be working through the 4.1 for a really long time still, if you recall the 4.7 took over a year to close out once they started shipping.
It does give some kind of time frame for when Survive ought to be able to get things under control, and it looks like it might happen in 2018.
My fingers are crossed for you Survive!
We're working through them and are far enough along that all of the Starter orders are on the bench for final test fitting, fine tuning and assembly. It won't be long
Chiral, I think that Guy was referring to the 4.1 Starter orders being on the bench for fitting and assembly.
As many of you know, we had been looking forward to moving to a permanent location that we actually owned. A while back, we made a down payment on this building. It was meant to be a place for SURVIVE! to grow while also providing us with a home and eventually extra rental income. The plan was to work on it in small pieces over time but we were never able to really get started because of the ongoing production issues. So we kept dreaming about layouts and waiting until we could start diving into this project.
Swipe to see what it looked like last week.
Fortunately, no one was in the building at the time. We did lose some belongings that were being stored there, but everyone is ok, including the knives.
We have been getting pulled out of the workshop a lot this past week. Things are starting to settle in though, and you should be seeing some shipping notifications later this week.
They have not determined a cause yet but there are several investigators looking into it. I believe it will be several weeks before they have any answers for us.
We have no idea what the next step will be, we are still processing all of this. When something so beautiful exists for over 100 years you don't realize how quickly it could disappear.
Some folks have been asking for a preview of the GSO-4LTD, so here it is! With all of the blades, hardware and handles now in house, we're really excited to be getting these finished up. They'll soon begin heading out to waiting hands.

Thanks for the heads up sryt95!
