Leather Scout Sheath for the Ka Bar Fighting Knife

Leather Scout Sheath for the Ka Bar Fighting Knife


This is a handmade leather sheath for the standard Ka Bar fighting knife that is meant to be worn horizontally on the belt or "scout style"

Each sheath is made out of 8-10 ounce latigo cowhide and features 2 straps that can be either solid loops that you thread your belt through, or loops with snap closure for easy removal.

The sheath is 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.

    Fits my knife really good, and the snaps are perfect. Holds everything securely.

    The sheath fit my knife like a glove. Everything was great quality and it has now become my favorite knife sheaths. Will be buying more!

    Had Grommet's do some customization, and they nailed it perfectly. This is my 2nd sheath from them and they are absolutely top quality.

    Quality is good. Feels solid and well made and the knife fits perfectly. Way better then the sheath that came with my ka-bar

    Couldn't have asked for anything better! I gave the measurements and that was it. The knife fit perfect! Great quality! I would highly recommend!
