    Svord mini again, I guess I drew the short straw with quality of this one. The grind was horrible. No edge at all to speak of. I'm still tweaking it with the ceramic rods. It's nearly shaving sharp. I really suck at sharpening.

    Previous experience. Candiru was ok size wise but I had issues with the size of the blade being too small. Leatherman Skeletool CX was a bit too big for my pocket taste and I was not using skcrewdivers nor pliers a lot (=never). It has been moved to my EDC bag in the tools compartiment.

    I replaced my Izula II custom G10 scales with paracord and remade a more compact kydex sheath. It's now very easy to carry in my jean front pocket. It's the one I EDC until further notice :p

    Hahaha. I was so happy I couldn't put it into words. Just had to share it. I had never even seen the bw version and as far as I can tell it's not even on their website. Kershaw guy has them for 50 I think. That's the only place I've seen it

    I am honestly VERY impressed. That's actually kind of how I ended up buying it. I had known about SURVIVE for a while, Sean at Edgeworks in Frederick MD had been telling me about them and showing me prototypes for some time. When he got this particular one in stock I really liked the look of it. I was in his shop a few days ago buying a birthday present for a friend and Sean got the GSO 4.1 out of the case for me to look at and I immediately had that "wow" reaction to the comfort of the handle and how well the whole thing was finished.... 10 minutes later I owned it. I believe it would suit an XL hand fairly well. I have probably dead-medium hands and there is about an inch of handle left when I hold it. I would honestly compare the length, width, and contouring of the handle pretty closely to a Condor Bushlore if that helps. For me it is VERY comfortable and perfectly balanced right at the first rivet. A true XL hand MAY want it a little bulkier but i can't say for sure. Il try to get some comparison shots of the GSO 4.1 to some other known fixed blades tonight.


    Edit: this is SUPPOSED to quote Kdurt's question about my GSO post but for some reason it won't
