    My question is if you already owned the Jessmuk, next gen and a great plainsman and wanted another Lt knife and could only pick from a GNS or a SOSPES. Which one would you choose and why.

    Oh definitely the Sospes.
    Because I might be parting with mine soon ;)

    I really like the looks of the Sospes. I just wonder if it won't be to large for me. It looks like a big hunk of a knife.

    I picked one up second hand cause I’d been eyeballin it for a years, and then eventually sold it. The handle was comfortable, but the knife - and handle - seemed large to me, we just never clicked.

    I think the GNS is a perfect size and fits me well. The SOSPES looks as if it would be too large for my taste/use/etc.

    My $.02. HYOH.

    What about your Sospes did you not like? Do you have any pics of it?

    It's not that I don't like it. I just never find myself grabbing it to use. For anything.
    Maybe if I actually went camping in the woods and not just playing around at home I'd find it more of a goto knife. It certainly seems like a capable knife.

    It's a well thought out knife. Give the micarta a fluff and buff and it would really pop.

    I like the spine. It's rounded where you might be using your thumb and 90 the rest of the way for making shavings or striking a rod.
