I was skeptical about the material but in practice this sheath works well. The Council Tool Flying Fox fit snugly, but Im really liking it with the 1.25 lb. Hudson Bay axe.. I carry it when doing trail work and it’s easy to get it in and out of this sheath. Also swivels out of the way, even when getting back in the vehicle. Will buy another for a Christmas gift. Whiskey River ships quick and offers great deals.
