This sheath is like most Buck products, well made and sturdy, but unlike most Buck products, this has a design flaw. The interior has a hard nylon liner that is intended to keep this very sharp knife from cutting up the sheath during unsheathing and sheathing. After 3 months of wearing the sheath last hunting season, the liner began to separate from the sheath which tended to catch the blade during sheathing and forcing the blade outside the liner. After a few times of this happening the separation became so bad that the gap was bigger outside the liner than in it. I have epoxied it twice now and have just decided to look for another sheath and toss this one.
It is possible to wiggle the knife out of this sheath without unsnapping it first. I have seen other model knives have both a nylon and leather version of basically the same sheath. Why wasn't this applied here?
