Description

CNC Made Kydex Knife Sheath ONLY (Knife Not Included)- I use the thicker .080″ Kydex for Superior Retention over the stock sheath, plus the added accessibility of being able to get a full proper grip on the knife when drawing it from the sheath.

Matthew’s Sheath is professionally designed using CNC CAD/CAM & over built with MELONITE coated eyelets spaced 3/4″ (.75″) apart so you can carry it the way you please. It has a sleek design with a much lower profile than the original. Ambidextrous carry, just remove the screws & position it the way you want then add blue loctite once you find your method of carry.

This Sheath is specifically designed to fit the following Ka-Bar models 1477, 1480, & 1481 TDI Law Enforcement Knives.

Please NOTE: You have to push hard when putting your knife in the sheath & to remove get your grip & press off with your thumb or when mounted to your belt, just give a quick yank. YouTube Video Called “Kydex Cheek Rest – Update – Ka Bar TDI Sheath”

    This is hands down the best sheath on the market. To buy the Kabar TDI 1480/1481 without this sheath is a WASTE of time and money. I have lost two of these knives in the past due to the factory sheath being weak and almost pointless, but that’s how Kabar was able to sell the knife inexpensively. The original sheath is a belt clip design that weakens with constant attachment and detachment. It’s just too loose to hold the knife properly in place without, every once in a while, inadvertently slipping the knife out, should it snag on a shirt or other item.

    That’s where Matthew comes in. This man has a gift for fabrication. His attention to detail is evident upon opening the package. I was ecstatic to play around with this item and compare it to the stock Sheath. The ability to canter or angle the sheath, coupled with the adjustment to belt size is of utmost importance and Matthew nailed it. I’m still very impressed months later with the resilience and tightness of hold. It takes a moment to learn how hard to press to get it perfectly snug, but that last push before it’s secure is awe-inspiring; “Aha! that’s what a sheath should do!” I should say the best thing about the knife is how quickly it can be pulled and ready to ‘use.’ That said the tightness of the sheath does NOT interfere with unholstering of the blade in milliseconds.

    This is what Kabar wishes they could package with the knife. You will not be disappointed.
    Knife and Matthew’s sheath amount to a reasonable $80.
    Do yourself a favor… The knife is useless without this product.
    You will soon agree with my subjective opinions.”

    I never did like the stock sheath, especially wearing it vertical. I purchased one for my TDI 1480, Matthew’s sheath is pure quality, worth every penny.”

    I was in need of a horizontal sheath for my newly purchased Kabar TDI and I needed it in a hurry. A lot of other kydex sheaths out there have a 4-6 week wait until they actually go into production. Any other time I’d have no problem waiting. However, as stated earlier I needed this sheath fast.

    Luckily I happened across Matthew’s Fabrication and on Amazon no less. The quality and fit of the sheath displays a great attention to detail. Fits like a glove and there are absolutly zero issues with drawing or reholstering (horizontally or vertically).

    For the price and speed of a made-to-order item, I’m more than happy with my purchase. I’ve been carrying my kabar in this sheath for 2-days now, roughly 12-hours a day. During regular daily tasks, work, and excercise the blade stays put. I’ve also practiced drawing from the sheath some few dozen times without issue.

    Matt does awesome work and it’s comforting to know I didn’t have to sacrifice quality for speed – Accountability, service, excellence – I’d easily recommend this sheath to other Kabar TDI owners.

    Note: I found the sheath worn horizontally works better with a single belt loop – This allows for you to fine tune the cant so that the handle will ride parallel with your belt rather than pointing downward a few inches below the belt.”

    Do not hesitate to buy this sheath. This thing is top-quality all the way. Fit and finish is flawless. The knife slides in smoothly and then you hear a nice “snap” which tells you it’s locked in securely. You will not have to worry about losing your blade, as it is not coming out until you bring it out. Worth every penny!!
