This Nathan Carothers Field Knife is a stout knife with an excellent design. The Thumb Ridges on the spine and the excellent ergonomics of the handle make this knife a joy to hold. 

Check out the Extra Deep Contouring of the Handle Scales on this rare knife. 

Another aspect that you wont see on later Models, this early example has a Thick, Chisel Ground Pry Bar / Skull Crusher Butt

Certainly a knife that will handle any Difficult Cutting or Light Chopping chore with ease.

The knife comes with a Custom Molded Kydex Belt Sheath  

Also, consider adding a Titanium Mummert Belt / Pants Clip for even more carry options ~ HERE

Previously owned but never used, carried or sharpened.

Other than a Slight bit of wear on the Screw Surfaces, this knife is in MINT Condition!
