Hello HigHRoaDers:
Well; last time I posted here was about my Vietnam Survival Knife. That was in 2008. It's Sheath had turned to mush so I bought what I thought was a good replacement, but today, the tie-down tang broke into, so I'm hoping to find a replica sheath for it. I paid like $5 and something for my original , but I see the replica knife and sheath are going for around $75. Maybe I can find just the sheath. Anybody know where I can pick one up on-line?
Thanks
Sage

Yep, RC's provided you the best advice.
You can purchase the sheath from Knife Center http://www.knifecenter.com/item/ON6152/

You may want to just call customer service at Ontario, though, and find out what they'll charge you for a replacement.

Get'm while you can!!

Murphy's law says if you have two of something, the first one will never ever wear out or break!

Thanks to Y'all: I got one on order. I'll put the mink oil to it in hopes it will last at least as long as I do, LoL. :D

Wax would be my recommendation.

Murphys law also says if you really like an item find it useful buy 2 because they will surely be discontunued

That's already happened. The military-issued 5-inch Jet Pilot's Knife is a thing of the past.
