KA1216: Replacement Kydex Sheath
KA-BAR Knives

Fits and locks in most KA-BAR knives with 7" blades. Does not fit item 1271 or 1273.

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. The sheath is ambidextrous for right or left handers and the knife is securely held by specially created contours keeping it quickly accessible. An additional high security pommel snubber strap of molded Elastollan is also provided for extreme security even in the most demanding situations such as sky jumps, dense underbrush and underwater work.

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.

KA-BAR 1216 Kydex Sheath
I recently purchased the KA-BAR full size fighting knife and decided to also purchase the Kydex sheath to go with it. While the leather sheath serves it purpose I find that the Kydex sheath provides for much better knife retention and security while still allowing for easy removal. Due to the design, the Kydex sheath also allows for a variety of carry options.
