  • a knife comprised of a blade extending from a blade base, the blade base having a first end for interconnection to the blade and a second end opposed from the first end, the blade comprising an upper edge defining an apex and an opposed lower sharpened edge ending in a tip wherein the upper edge and the lower edge are joined, and the blade base also having a handle guard extending from a location proximate to the first end of the blade base;

    a sheath configured to receive the blade of the knife, the sheath having;

    a first end,a second open end, the second open end associated with a cavity also defined by a ceiling, a floor, and sidewalls of the sheath, wherein the tip is spaced from the floor when the blade is fully inserted into the sheath,a selectively deflectable arm that ends in a detent positioned proximate to the second open end of the sheath;

    a flexible band having a first end operatively interconnected to the first end of the sheath, and a second end operatively interconnected to the second end of the blade base;

    wherein when the blade is fully inserted into the sheath, the detent is in a first locked position where the handle guard is positioned between the second open end and the detent, and wherein the detent has a second release position where the selectively deflectable arm is flexed to move the detent so that the handle guard is able to move away from the second open end of the sheath; and

    wherein a quick release movement of the knife from the sheath is achieved by moving the detent from the first locked position to the second release position by sliding the blade base along the second open end of the sheath to move the tip of the blade in the direction of the floor of the sheath.
