Good replacement sheath
The sheath is a great replacement for a worn out leather original sheath. This K-Bar was my original one from my time in the Marine Corps back in the early '90's. Needless to say, the original sheath was worn out. The knife fits perfectly and is secure with the hilt lock. The sheath looks to be made well, and for the price you can't beat it.

Replacement KaBar sheath
I bought this sheath as a replacement for the leather one I wore out over 20 years of HARD use. The sheath itself is great and I expect it to be durable. However, the retaining strap tore off the first week of use. This isn’t a problem for me as I wasn’t planning on using it anyway, and instead rely on the locking feature of this sheath, but it is something to be aware of.

Well-made product (manufactured by KA-BAR, not aftermarket), and costs less than it probably should. I wanted this sheath because of its ability to retain the knife by the tang (it snaps into place well with my standard issue KA-BAR) and because I could attach it to various pieces of gear by using the grommets. I would definitely recommend this product to others that may be interested in this type of sheath.
