i am planning a long wildeness hike and recently bought a ka-bar 1217 marine fighting/utility knife after much research and discussion. it came with an excellent leather sheath with the marine emblem and and USMC embossed in its surface. i am not a marine and respect their service greatly so i would feel wrong wearing their symbol on their most famous knife unearned. on a side note it may be the only large knife i ever need to own, it is that good.
while on amazon browsing for hiking/camping gear i saw my knife in the "what other people that viewed this item" popup and thought i'd take a look at prices and see how i did for cost (pretty good!). anyway this sheath was a recommended accessory and the price was right so i snapped it up. picked snail mail for maximum cost effectiveness and three days later had package from blade shop the seller. thrilled i tore it open and tested it for fit on my new knife. nobody mentioned it clicks in place! a raise kinda trapezoid grips the handle where it tapers to the guard, perfect fit! easy access, no wiggle, top quality. four beefy rivets hold the thick nylon belt strap. the steel grommeted holes around the sheaths perimeter are the perfect size for 5/32" para cord. long story short i am absolutely thrilled. it feels like it should last a good long while. i would recommend it to anyone and everyone, too bad i think this knife will last me forever because i'd order another one in a heartbeat. if you have a ka-bar thatis not a display piece this sheath is for you

this product works perfectly with my 7" Kabar knife. The sheath is very durable and holds the knife very securely. I love how the knife snaps in to place, the strap is nice too. To the reviewer that gave the low review and said his knife "rattles" in the sheath, i have none of that, and i would guess that he is using the wrong size of knife.

I purchased this sheath for my newly acquired Ka-bar USMC fighting knife, found here: KA-BAR Full Size US Marine Corp Fighting Knife, Straight .

This is a great sheath for this knife. The stiff Kydex protects the blade well, and the knife fits snugly into the sheath and does not rattle. The sheath has many mounting options, from a simple belt mount to tactical straps, allowing this sheath to be placed basically anywhere about the body. Drawing the blade is easy, no matter how you have the sheath attached. Many hard sheaths are difficult to draw from due to poor design; this one is not. Very nice, indeed.

I got this sheath for an original Ka-Bar USMC Fighting Knife. It fits great, and holds the knife secure with no rattling or shaking, and with the right placement of your thumb you can draw the knife rather fast by pushing. The kydex its made with feels strong and built sturdy, the loop for your belt even feels strong. It has a Ka-Bar logo on the front near the knife entrance point. I'm very happy with this purchase and will be purchasing another one when I get my second Ka-Bar with the black Kraton grip. I uploaded some pictures as well. =)

Perfect fit for the Ka-Bar model 1211 combat knife with 7" blade. Numerous attachment options. Great replacement for the stock leather sheath.

This sheath is an absolute must for anyone who purchases the Ka-Bar 9" standard issue. The only change I MIGHT make to the design is the use of plastic for the belt clip. I would prefer stainless steel, but the plastic should fair. Mine has not broke, but this is the only point of design I would change.

One can't go wrong with this purchase.

In Jesus' name you're healed.

Got the sealth to replace the leather sheath that came with my Ka-Bar. The leather holds water pretty good and wanted something that would repell the water better and keep the blade dry. We will see how it holds up. It holds the knife pretty good, even with the handle strap unbuckled which is nice.

This is a good sheath. I don't know if the one bad review received the wrong sheath but this one fits great! I'm not sure the model number of my Ka-Bar but it is the 11+ inch straight edge USMC fighting knife. The wrapped handle is a darker color than most I've seen so I didn't go by the pictures that this sheath claims to fit. Overall it is a good sheath, the knife clicks into place with no chance of coming out. I got this sheath to replace my standard USMC leather one because I feel that in prolonged storage, the moisture in the leather will eventually hurt the knife (goes for gun cases too). Also as a personal preference, since I'm not in the Marine Core I don't feel that I should wear their emblem even though I fully support them. The only reason I didn't give this sheath a 5 star is because I feel that it could have been made out of better material (the plastic is cheap). With this in mind I don't see any foreseeable problems with it.

As indicated in the title, my sheath is great and functions well but is slightly different than the one pictured when I bought it. The picture shows a snap strap to secure the knife in the sheath. My item has a molded section and requires me to push in with my thumb while pulling on the handle to disengage the knife from the sheath. So, the point is that as you slide the knife home, it locks into the sheath without further action. I think I like this version a little better than the snap. Time will tell. Both do have the snap strap on the handle.

My USMC 7 inch knife fits perfectly and looks good. My sheath did not come with any additional straps.

Rather than ramble on about how great this sheath is, I'll just mention a few features I really liked.
-Knife snaps in place and snaps out with a simple push of the thumb (works for Righties AND Lefties) and stays in place even if held upside down or shaken.
-There's a backup strap for the handle with a simple, sturdy snap.
-There's opened channels on the outside of the sheath which are great for adding webbing or paracord.
-Will fit any belt with plus there's a swivel that allows for horizontal carry or mounting if you choose to add cordage or webbing.
-Kydex is extremely stury and durable.
