The 1216 sheath is constructed out of a tough hard shell black plastic which provides a hard surface that protects the knife while traveling through rough and harsh terrains.
The sheath has a built in guard edge snap ridge as well as a handle snap retention strap to provide double security protection.
The sheath is resistant to impact, corrosion, and abrasion. Its all-weather performance, and being imperviousness to most chemicals, petroleum-based products, and moisture, including salt water, make it very popular for wet areas or as an under water diving sheath.
It has several lashing ports which provides multiple tie-down options including upside down in a shoulder area or strapped to a LBV, BA, as well as the traditional belt loop mount.
The sheath will fit all standard full size 7" fixed blade KA-BAR knives. Sheath is embossed with the KA-BAR brand name.
