The proof they don't have steel yet is they sent me an email telling me they don't. It is also public knowledge since they announced several times they haven't ordered it yet. Review the history on FB and other social media and they tell you these facts. I don't want them to close their doors but to do half of what they say they are going to do. They haven't done a single thing they said they were going to do. We changed our model things will get better.. no. We are introducing the SK line and things will go faster... no. We have moved location things will go faster. no. We are telling the truth about what they do. If people keep putting in orders and the wait time is getting longer not sooner how is that helping anyone? Do you want people to send in money and get lied to to fund this scam? Tell me this then why in 2016 did they say they were sending the 7/7 out by years end and now in 2019 they haven't even got the preorders out? If you want proof go read the statements on FB about not having the 20CV steel for the 5.1 knife yet or ask them yourself. They took orders on the GSO 5.1 in May of 2016 have they even started yet? Would you order a steel that rust like 3V and hold it for years before you start production? Try reading the production update they put out each month if you wish to fact check me. This is one reason they stop with the updates on the net because it never comes true and people call them out on it. You keep hoping they get their act together but anyone that have followed them for years know that nothing they say or do is the truth. You can't be wrong 100% of the time and convince me that Survive runs a legit knife business. The reason I said something about blade is someone posted a reply they were going to be there and since they were not that too is a lie isn't it. BTW they don't work Friday, Sat, or Sun and that is a fact too so going to Blade would have done nothing for production. Your post said see you next year btw. at the bottom so the point is they said they would be there and were not. Read the monthly updates going back to Jan 2016 and see if anything they said comes true. Look at the 5.1 they will start as soon as steel arrives so have they started yet? Future Production: The GSO-4.5 Bushcraft knife will be closing next. Keep an eye on the Production Schedule page to know an exact date. The GSO-8 is trying to catch up but is still just behind the GSO-10. Due to overwhelming popularity, GSO-5.1 production will start as soon as extra sheets of steel arrive. Necker and Necker IIs are waiting on steel before being added to the schedule.
