Hi Zawaka,
This particular model of the A1z, The “z” is used to designate the Zytel (polymer) sheath that the knife shipped with. Fallkniven also offers the A1 with leather (A1L) and lefty sheath configurations.
I feel the polymer sheath has several advantages: easy to clean, and won’t react adversely to water or freezing temperatures. The sheath holds the knife securely, has drain hole, and allows, for easy one hand insertion and removal. It's simple belt loop hangs easily and freely. It’s simple, but it gets the job done.
Cheers, Seb

I agree with you wholeheartedly. For an outdoor, rugged use knife, the zytel sheath is the way to go. If this was a $1k showcase knife, perhaps leather would make sense. Leather may be traditional, but it's not he best; it's simply what people had available back when knives were first being made.

Is the sheath ambidextrous?
