Leather Sheath for the Ka Bar Tanto Fighting Knife

Leather Sheath for the Ka Bar Tanto Fighting Knife


This is a handmade leather sheath for the 1245 Tanto blade Ka Bar fighting knife

Each sheath is made out of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide and featured either a loop to carry the knife vertically, or 2 straps that can be either solid loops that you thread your belt through, or loops with snap closure for easy removal.

The scout straps are designed to be worn in the back and drawn with whatever hand you choose when ordering. To carry in front, the setup will be opposite, so if you intend to carry in front and draw with your right hand, you will need to order the LH setup.

Due to the guard, the sheath is unable to be set up in an ambidextrous configuration, so be sure to determine which setup you need before ordering. If you need more information, feel free
to message me.

We offer both silver and black snaps. Let us know in the order notes when ordering what color you would like. If you do not note your preference we will give you the snap that bests suits the color of your sheath (All Ka-bar sheaths will default with black hardware with black stitching.)

As always, customization is available. Feel free to message me for details.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Do you have any items in Stock, ready to ship?

    We now have a section of in stock items! Everything in this section is available, and will ship within 1-2 business days.

    Why so expensive?

    Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.

    Can you make a sheath for a knife other than the ones offered here?

    We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.

    Do your holsters meet IDPA regulations?

    All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.

    Are your leather sheaths lined with Kydex?

    To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

    Does the knife come with the sheath?

    No. Each item is for the sheath/scabbard/holster itself, no knives, swords, or guns are included with any purchase.

    It was a little difficult to get my tanto into the sheath at first, but I think with a little time the leather will stretch and it should fit like a glove.

    Fantastic fit for my Kabar Tanto! The original hard plastic sheath broke on my first outing. Looked all over for a better replacement. This leather (high quality) sheath fit the bill and is well made. Top quality leather work!
