Italian term or phrase: troviamo, con l’estremità
Ecco che nelle due tasche laterali del fodero troviamo, con l’estremità sagomata perché quando sono in sede servano per appoggiarci il pollice nell’estrarre il coltello dal fodero, abbiamo da un lato una minuscola ma efficace torcia..... mentre dall'altra....

I am a bit confused about how this sub-phrase fits into the description of what is found in the pockets, i.e. the first and last phrases describe the contents of the two side pockets, but I cannot see how the moulded end serving as a thumb rest connects to this description.

Reference information:
Ecco che nelle due tasche laterali del fodero troviamo / abbiamo / ci sono da un lato una minuscola ma efficace torcia elettrica unita ad un fischietto, mentre dall’altro c’è un accendifuoco al ferro-cerio che durerà ben di più dei tre fiammiferi antivento contenuti nei manici cavi dei coltelli per il notaio nella giungla.

Le due tasche laterali hanno l’estremità sagomata perché quando sono in sede / applicate servano per appoggiarci il pollice nell’estrarre il coltello dal fodero.
