Is the brown sheath alone offered for sale?
LOL thanks to The Deacon.
BTW, I recently spent the day with a warrior, recent but former active duty soldier from the mid-east, and he talked about the importance keeping weapons on your person. This applies to the original sheath of the Warrior knife which has many strong fastening points in order to keep the knife with you. He said that while manning the hatch of the APC he would always keep an underfold AK slung tightly to his torso. This was in case he was ejected, form an IED for example, out of the hatch like a cannon ball so that if he survived he could carry on with the fight even if all of his companions were dead. The idea being that his issued army weapon wouldn't stay with him, would be stripped away from his body as he left the exploding vehicle because it was too large and didn't have enough fastening points. He survived intact. (sidebar: we went to a local gunshow (I found and bot a nearly new Catcherman) where I tried to keep him from quickly dismantling a variety of exotic weapons in front of amazed vendors while the warrior spun first person stories of each weapons usage like a verbal select-fire gun. He spell bound veterans while I, never having fired a gun in anger, became increasingly uneasy so I broke away to search for obscure cutlery). I gave him a NIB Kris which he fancied.
Here are some pics of an authentic
Warrior for your amusement (taken by myself today, 9-19-2010):
