The sheath is a "molle-back" sheath that work with molle or pals webbing, it has eyelets for multiple attachment points, as as often with TOPS' sheaths it has eyelets that also serve as a secondary or alternative retention point.
Being as the knife is obviously designed primarily as a chopper I have done a lot of just that. And since it is 5160 spring steel which is known for it's toughness and edge retention I have mostly been chopping in some very hard woods, and periodically stopping to check the edge.
I'm really not sure what type of wood this is...maybe maple...but It is a very hard wood that I have used to test more than one edge on.
But even after a few minutes spent making a deep notch in it the edge was still doing fine.
Then I set into a nice hard Dogwood tree, a recent victim of the blight, which it handled with ease.
Next up was some seasoned Hickory. It severed some one inch thick limbs easily in one quick cut on the bias, and using the hickory log for a chipping block easily chopped them in two cross-grain as well.
