KA-BAR 1217I-1 Brown Plain Leather Sheath for F/U Knife. The 1217I-1 sheath is constructed of high quality brown leather and will fit all of the standard full size 7" fixed blade KA-BAR knives. The sheath has no embossing. This sheath is both stitched and riveted for added strength and long lasting durability.
Also features a wide traditional belt mount loop, a leg lanyard hole, and a handle retention strap with a snap closure to hold the knife securely in place.
The length of the sheath is actually right for the 7" ka-bar. It is a little longer than it needs to be but that is because there is a hole in the bottom for a lanyard so it has to be a little long. The tip of the blade on my knife comes just to the top of the hole, so it is the right length. I like it better than the weird blocky plastic sheath that came with my ka-bar.
The handle snap, sheath reinforcement buttons and stitching are of a nice quality and nicely done.
Others have complained about the handle strap being to tight, this sheath was as well, however, you can apply some Turner sling preservative or similar product and warm air to melt the preservative, it will soften up the sheath. Then put the knife in the sheath and stretch snap form the strap to the handle letting it sit overnight you'll be fine.
It would have been nice to know it's made in Mexico, and it does not have a wide enough stand off at the sheath opening and the guard so the knife will resist and very prominently rub against the belt hanger when you take the knife in and out of the sheath.
Just an FYI as to why I do business with you. Last Christmas after calling on the status of a knife I ordered, I learned it was out-of-stock. Ultimately you took care of me and expressed mailed-at no charge, the replacement I ordered. The knife arrived on time + you threw in a free small CTR folding knife as well (nice)..
