Thread: Kydex sheath for OKC 499 Air Force Survival Knife

    Default Kydex sheath for OKC 499 Air Force Survival Knife

    I really like my OKC 499 Air Force Survival Knife and would like to get a Kydex sheath as a home for it. The original leather sheath is ok is visually appealing but I have concerns about moisture.

    Have been unable to locate a Kydex sheath made for the OKC 499 (though there are several custom-made options).

    My thought/question: Would the Kydex sheath made for the short KA BAR fit the OKC 499? The KA BAR blade is 1/4 inch longer than the OKC 499.

    Don't know if it would fit or not. While I have not worked with Kydex, I have looked at a lot of "how to" videos on making Kydex sheathes. It seems to be relatively simple. Have you thought about making your own?
