    Attaching a buck 119 to the side of a Molle backpack

    I have a Buck 119 and a US mil surplus Molle II Assault Pack. I am trying to figure a way to securely attach the knife to the molle loops on the left side of the pack. I did some hard googling for a sheath capable of this but the only one i can fund is a Kydex pancake that will surely let the knife fall out and get lost. Anyone have any ideas other then using zip ties to secure the buck leather sheath? I am looking for another sheath i can just leave attached to the pack and put the knife back in its leather sheath when I'm done my hunting trip.

    Carrying it on my belt has never been a problem or actually putting it in the bag, but i think it would be more comfortable on the side of the pack, Any input?

    One of the reviewers says this sheath fits his 119 like a glove.

    looks like a nylon holder for a mini mag light.

    I like the 119 but not enough to by a special kydex holster for it. I'd probably just get a different knife that came with an appropriate sheath.

    I am a buck and Grohmann fanatic. My two favourite knives. I have an Grohmann Canadian forces one that was issued to me when i was on subs. I then went and bought a second one directly from the factory. Took a road trip there since it is about a 3 hour drive from my house. The guys there were nice enough to give my wife and I a personal tour of the factory. Showed us every step of production.

    Edit to add pics.
    The lighter sheath is the issued one which also has the darker handle. The gouge in the handle is where i fell on it on the sub and the brass closure on the sheath dug into the wood on the grip. The one with the darker case is actually darker because it has been treated with mink oil half a dozen times and i have been using it on ship and for field dressing deer and rabbits. The purchased on is marked with an "S" because they marked one as seconds for me and sold it to me for 50% off. Another reason I like them so much.

    Hey I love Bucks especially the 119, it's just not what I think of when I'm thinking of modern knives to attach to fighting gear.
