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.

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.

This is an exceptional upgrade from the stock sheath that comes with the knife. The quality of the sheath is outstanding. The fit is perfect, the snaps are durable and don’t come undone like the stock sheath, and the kydex is great and shaped perfectly. It’s also very sleek, much less bulky, and easier to wear than the original. Looks great in FDE. 10/10.
