    Pancake for a user you want to draw easily. Open spine slows you down popping the strap off and fastening for every draw, but it does look neat.
    Now a clamshell spine is pretty cool on a recurve user as long as you don't mind scratches.

    Personally I am a fan of pancake style sheaths. Just look the best to me.

    Why not a regular taco sheath?

    IMO, only recurve knives really benefit from an open back. And many pancake sheaths, particularly on bigger knives, just look like boat paddles to me.

    I really like those kydex colors. :D
