Kydex Sheath For Short Combat Knife
Fits all KA-BARS with 5 1/4" blades, except item 1253.
The Sheath
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 short model kydex sheath.
This product, I feel, is much more practical than the leather sheath that arrived with the knife. The knife clicks into pace securely for a safe and silent carry. Aditional press studs and straps further secure the knife at the cross-guard and handle top making for a very secure carry in extreme circumstances. I cannot imagine it would be possible to lose the knife under any circumstances should all these securing methods be employed.

Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Cons: None
Most reasonable priced
Using this with a modified Ontario USAF Survival Knife. Indestructible, easy to use and looks like it will last forever. Only complaint is the upper strap is not long enough for this handle BUT the sheath has 2 other methods to secure the knife so this is a very minor problem. Being I using this for a knife which it was not designed for, it is actually a non issue.
