NEW Large TDI Knife Sheath DESIGN Fits: Large Ka-Bar TDI 1482 & the Large TDI Tanto 1485 Knives

Hand 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 Fabrication Sheath’s are professionally designed & 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 1482 & 1485 Large 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”

    Great sheath!! With a great price for quality workmanship.. Thank you for making these.. the sheath that came with my TDI 1482 really is not that good, the snaps comes undone everytime I present or resheath. Thank you again for making these available to those who wants something better.

    Hello, Today I received the Cheek Rest and installed it right away. I am writing this review to let you know how pleased and impressed I am! High quality, good design, well-made, fit and finish excellent! And, it took minutes to install. Thank you!

    Not only is this an amazing product but the customer service is first rate. I was kept up to date with the progress, and all my questions were quickly answered.
    The sheath is high quality and fits snugly on my belt. I have no problem either quickly pulling the knife or replacing in back in the sheath. I have worn this inside of my belt on the small of my back as well as cross draw on the front/side. Being left handed I found the many optional configurations awesome.
    I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a great sheath to replace the low quality one that comes with the knife from ka-bar.
