A question to LT Wright GNS owners.
« on: March 30, 2015, 11:31:31 AM »
I am sure you can appreciate the limitations to making an on line purchase as opposed to an actual store front where one can handle the wares.
Size wise, how do you rate the handle on the GNS? Is this a knife only for those with large hands or is it appropriate for one with medium size hands? Simple question for an important decision.

Thank You

I find a 4 inch handle is perfect for me. I find the GNS slightly longer in handle than the spyderco bushcraft..

I think it suits a larger hand..

What knives are you familiar with so we can give comparison?
What's that smell?

I have a Fallknives F1 and I find it has a thin handle.
I have a Mora and I could stand a thicker handle.
I have a Buck folder and it too seems a bit small.
My hand measures about 3.5" across.

I have an F1 and a Mora companion (and a Bantam and Vantage lg).

The GNS is much larger in diameter than the f1 and a bit larger than the Mora. It's also longer than all of them.
What's that smell?

I'd say it's co parable in length to a Bark River Aurora, but much more rounded/contoured. Not really many fully production knives will compare.

I would say the GNS has the fullest of production knives that I own. It's very contoured and comfortable, I wear a size large glove. The length is on the longer side as well, the handle extends out past my grip but I love it for the versatility.

The GNS is my favorite production bushcraft knife
