I bought this for my husband for Christmas because the original sheath he had was torn. I was very happy to find a replacement sheath that matched the original leaves and nuts design like the one that came with the axe, rather than the pine cones on most other replacements. It was a little hard to snap when first put on the axe, but I am thinking it is because it is new, and will stretch out over time. Overall, I am very satisfied with this product.
Found my 50+ year old camp hatchet I used as a Boy Scout but somewhere along the way, the sheath was lost! Not a problem; searched for a replacement; wasn't expecting much since my hatchet was so old but I cleaned up the hatchet and the new sheath from Campmor fit like a fine form fitting glove. I couldn't have asked for better than what I got!
I'M HAVING TO ORDER ONE OF THESE BECAUSE I SAT THE SHEATH ON THE GROUND , TURNED AND WALKED THE 20 YARDS WITH MY SPLIT PIECES OF WOOD , AND A VARMINT TOOK OFF WITH THIS SHEATH! ! !
LESSON : DON'T LAY IT ON THE GROUND! ! ! STOW IT IN YOUR POCKET OF PACK! ! !

Estwing hatchet sheath
My old sheath had rotted out, and this was a replacement. As hatchet sheaths go, this one is pretty good. I guess one could argue that it might be heavier duty, but I wanted an Estwing to match the hatchet. I notice the design of the clip flap has changed slightly.
