If you have been reading JTT for a while, you know that I like Mora knives. The Mora Companion in particular finds its way onto my belt or into my packs more often than other models. I actually don’t mind the regular plastic sheaths that Morakniv includes with these knives but there are times that I need some extra retention and a way to position the sheath some way other than perfectly vertical which lead me to the Armory Plastics Mora Companion sheath.
I didn’t have high hopes for this sheath. If I am being completely honest, I wondered if a molded kydex sheath this cheap can be any good. I also had doubts about the plastic clip – would it break, would it hold the angle that I set, would it have a good grip on my belt?
I purchased the sheath in June of 2018 and have been using it since. It has been swimming in a creek, to the top of some local peaks, bounced around in the center console of my truck, and carried during sub-zero days on snowshoes. None of those environmental factors seemed to have any effect on it. I was especially keen to see how the cold would effect the clip but it seems to have shrugged it off.
Speaking of the clip… That has become one of my favorite features of this sheath. It is lightweight and seems durable. It handles thicker belts without issue and holds on tenaciously. Best of all, it is easily rotatable without tools but its tight friction fit keeps the sheath at whatever orientation you set.
The Armory Plastics Mora Companion Sheath accepts every Mora Companion model I have tried. It fits the standard Carbon and Stainless models perfectly with no rattle and a crisp “click” when sheathing the knife. The thicker Companion HD knives fit very well too (this is what I usually carry) but the “click” is a bit more mushy.
The bottom line is that I have spent a lot more on sheaths that I don’t use nearly a much as this one. It is functional, affordable, and works with several of my Mora knives. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

I purchased my sheath on Amazon where they only have black and orange available but at a much lower price: Mora Companion Sheath on Amazon
