The best thing about this sheath is the quality and sound thinking behind the plastic liner: Unlike similar TOPS sheaths, that have thin, hard and brittle plastic, here the rolled plastic is thick, strong, and soft, so it does not scratch the blade: Brilliant, almost as good as the felt liners of Al Mar Eagle sheaths... Furthermore, the inner blade space thickness is just right for blades up to 1/4", unlike the horrible very loose liners of Spec Ops sheaths... Inner liner width goes up to a very wide 2" plus, so it might be a bit loose for narrower blades, but the excellent adjustable handle loop design can be adjusted tight to fully "stabilize" the blade: Outstanding... I loved the handle loops and their adjustable feature, but removed the redundant one at the top of the handle. The snaps are hard but not excessively so, and that is much better than too "soft" as they wear-in beautifully. Excellent snaps, though they feel a bit small in diameter compared to fancier ones. The outer nylon shell is acceptable in quality, but smoother and not as high-end seeming as Spec Ops... However Spe-Ops could hardly be thicker without being excessive... I would still rate the nylon as much thicker and better in feel than TOPS, which is really marginal. Very happy with the sheath, but it is not a luxurious feeling item in the way Spec Ops are: Liner is far superior however....
