You can look for them on Ebay. They do show up by themselves from time to time. They haven't made any new plastic sheaths for the MK1 since WW2.
The plastic is bakelite or something very close to it. I haven't tried to repair the plastic on any of my old knives, but I've used auto body repair kits to fix old bakelite items myself. Just take the time to mix the proper color into the stuff before you add the hardener. You can look up instructions on repairing old bakelite items on the net.
If your MK1 is a PAL 35 version, like the one in the photo, The spacer in that one isn't plastic. It's a fiber spacer. They are known to crack with age. Epoxy might work on it, but I still don't have any first hand experience with it.
