Replacment Kbar sheath

I have a friend that is an old Saltdog Viet-vet Marine who still carrys his issued Kbar for camp knife. I seen the poor poor shape the sheath was in, holes in it rotting apart.(They were never made that well to begin with and 2.5 years jungle didnt help)
Anyway at a military service rifle shoot which happened to be on Marine Corp birthday last Nov. I snuck his Kbar out and made a tracing of the well worn blade.
This is what I came up with for the Sarge.


When he asked what he owed me I told him " you already paid"
I finally found a way to make a Gunny have nothing to say. Hope you enjoy

Re: Replacment Kbar sheath

I had never heard of one either J, I heard rumors a Lt.Col could make one speachless but chalked that up to bravado Whistling The best part was that he kind of onced it over and then noticed I had globe and anchor on it, that stopped him dead and he sorta stuttered "how did you get that on there?"
Its not what Id call perfect but it sure fits his Kbar like a glove and thats the main thing as well as he doesnt have to worry about stickin himself in leg with the tip when climbing. Its hand stitched 7oz.dbl shoulder leather with an Oil finish. Should last him and probably his kids lives.
