We Marines are good at three things math and using knives what's going on guys today I got a knife review for you and this is the new survive knives gso five-point ruin we've done the five point one in the past but this is a new and improved version if you didn't know the survive knives gesso 5.1 is a full size medium utility knife.
Has the same blade profile as the old five point one but a completely re-engineered handle that has been recontoured and lengthened for those guys with larger hands or you can you know change position of your hands the knife has a 5.7 5-inch blade length and a little over ten inches overall so I was really happy you know the five point.
One had been my favorite survival knife for a while my old version I had the very first version and this new version I'm ten I really fell in love with it we'll kind of talk a little bit more about the new features my version is a CPM 20 CV you can also get a CPM 3v what I really like about this new version is this new coating here I'll show you an.
Old version here this is my five and you just kind of see the difference there so this one's got a little bit more of a matte finished and man I've tried to really mess it up and and stuff like that and to no avail I mean the thing all you gotta do is scrub it off and it looks completely fine again this old version had a slight problem.
With having a rounded corner so you had to get a Ferro rod knotch with the new version that is not a problem as I'll demonstrate so you can see I'm going all the way down the back of the blade and the whole back of the spine is sharpen up to strike a pharisee I'm rod I know that was a concern with a lot of people out.
There the new model this I have g10 handles on this you can also get micarta like this is the this is my car to here this is the g10 camo now like I said the handles been re-engineered for a longer length but it also has the Torx t25 style fasteners and you can pick up these little tools anywhere now the benefit of.
This is one it looks great and most people have these laying around they don't even know it but you see in the old style barrel nuts here that dirt and dust and grime can get into it and it doesn't meet flush with the other side the other thing is is these flat type style flat heads can become worn or strips so that's a not going to happen.
With these t25 so it gives a tighter lock up whenever your unfastening the still has the lanyard hole the hidden lanyard hole feature which I really like it's a lot more open up than the older versions and something else you'll notice a lot of people complain about back in the day is that I mean his or Survive knives attention to detail is.
Just awesome because you can't even see any type of I mean its total perfection on the jimping here you can't see any type of differentiation between any of the grooves here but you know this knife is pretty much perfection in my opinion I can't find any kind of flaw with this knife super great steel choice phenomenal.
Finish and it's non reflective so if you're you know a military or something like that you need a you know tactical situations where you don't need a reflective blade not going to be reflective you can choose between a g10 or Mike or you know depending on your environment you're going to be dealing with and the.
New fasteners and the hand organ omics have always impressed me with survive so so really man survive in my opinion makes the best BarNone survival knives I've seen I've used just to be honest with you I've used lots of light lots of knives and I still do like lots of knives but in my opinion they do make the best there are let's talk about the.
New redesigned sheath as well for just a minute this is the old model sheath it was a pancake style meaning two slabs of Kydex together the new is a taco which gives it a slider you know thinner profile than the older model so it's got a fold over here which gives it a rounder edge and this is the part that's going to be close to your body so that's.
Good I do like that very very fine smooth out finish on the sides still has the drain canal going through the entire length of the blade which I like but I do I do like the way this looks a lot better than the old versions they did a phenomenal job with that still has the same type of clip system that could clip on a belt or pals webbing so just I.
Wanted to show that as well that new and improved design to me this is one of the I guess most all-around survival knives like if I was only to have one night this would probably be it because it can do most all tasks it's still lightweight enough you know to be such a large knife and it can accomplish most all tasks and highs the laser engraving of survived.
Knives and I Peters heat-treat here and the blade steel as well as an American flag on this side but like I said I really enjoy this knife and I like to saber grinds it is the toughest and you've seen it past that you know tip tests that a lot of knives will fail I can do this all day because we still should be tougher in wood right so.
Anyhow like I said man they make some of the best stuff that I've seen or used I've been using them for years and I'm yet to destroy any of them they're still just as good as the dad brought them out the box so check this out of surviving knives check out black Scout survival calm for more tips and tutorials if you have.
