    If there is enough leather, you can try and restitch the leather. It may look good, or not.

    You can also replace the leather pc. that is damaged with a new pc. of leather by removing the original stitching and putting on a new-cut pc. of leather & button snap, then restitch on using the original holes.

    Lastly, you can have a new sheath made for it. I am assuming that the knife has sentimental value and not the sheath. You should be able to find several sheathmakers on www.bladeforums.com. -Or, if you have a shoe-repair guy in your town, you may try asking him if he can repair it for you.
