Good day.

I'm looking for a new/near new sheath for an 8001 I just purchased. I finally have the pair offered to club members in '88, stag and green bone. I need this for the green bone. Sorry for no pic, it wouldn't load. Did finally

Thank you.

Hard one to find Dan. BTW, it doesn't look like quite a match, I think the ricasso marks should match if they are from the same issue. The green one is part of the set, I think the stag one is older.

723 produced in stag, 389 in bone, the stag one should be easier to find. Good luck!! I can keep my eyes open for one if you like. I set up at two big knife shows, one early April and the other late April.
