    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

    Thanks rcmodel: Yep it's the 5" survival model dated on the pommel 5-1967. I've been searching online for them.

    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.

    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.
