Custom molded of Kydex which is an acrylic thermoplastic with high impact and abrasion resistant qualities. It is impervious to most chemicals, solvents, petroleum based products and moisture, including salt water.

The permanent memory of Kydex assures that its custom molded shape will keep its form without shrinking or cracking, even under repeated extreme stress.

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.

KA-BAR Replacement Kydex Sheath
The sheath’s design enables putting knife into the sheath regardless of which direction the blade is facing. KA-BAR’s have variations in handle diameter. The retaining handle strap can be on the small side for some models. However, they stretch to fit on most models. In addition, some older knives have thin leather handles that make the strap fit loosely. The sheath is well made strong and fits my two vintage KA-BAR CAMULAS combat knives. The sheaths secondary holding design retains the knife tightly and takes an ample pull to release it from the sheath.
