Those are regular uniform Dolphins.  Backed the sheath with two strips of leather and a short piece of steel.  Soaked the leather well and then used two c-clamps to press the image into the leather.

Wonderful knife design and execution.  The engraved saying makes it so special. Sheath with the dolphins and the work on the back is great. 

That is an heirloom treasure.
