    I would like to kick off the Carothers and Guns thread with Nathan’s former personal concealed carry knife known as the “Nasty Little Double Edge”.

    Cocobolo set :thumbsup:;)

    Sorry for the derailment but no new DE-UFs will ever likely see the light of day, at least coming from Nathan's! Those who have the only 3 (4?) in the wild (civilians) do indeed own unicorns.

    Awesome blade, and Gus has the coolest one I've seen. I need one of those snubnose, too. @gusbuster are those both in .38?

    Thanks Dave. Yeah those are my old .38s. Smith & Wesson didn’t even make the J frame .357s yet when I got those. I updated the cylinder release latch on them. I still carry the Airweight on the left regularly.

    They look great! I've got the 629 mountain gun and always thought I'd like to try the airweight model of that. I do pack it more than I shoot it after all :D

    Very nice Nathan. Feel free to share the background story on the Tommy Gun, the real one in the pics, not Sir-Tom-Tom-the-Gum-er-Gun ;)

    If I had to wager a guess, I'd speculate that it's been in your Family and grandfathered in but as I often admit, I-am-a-know-Nothing :)
