This is really handy for heading out into the woods with arms full of other stuff and generally well made. If I were to nit-pick, I'd say that the leather feels dry even after oiling, but the biggest thing I'd change is a different fastener on the sheath. Yeah, the snap makes deployment a "snap," but that is the problem. On more than one occasion while carrying, I've had that snap pop open and drop my axe. Not only is that annoying, it's dangerous. Something more secure like a strap+buckle or even a large button/toggle would be preferred. I'd rather it be a little more effort to open than for it to be able to decide to open itself when I don't want it to.
Really nice Steele. I put a razor sharp 12° edge on it. The leather sling and harness is a genius design that is top quality manufacturing
