I am not a fan of belt wear, which is why I made the P3 series, but I had this idea for a sheath.

Borrowing an idea from another company, ThinkTank and their Skin pouch series, I present, The Skinth!. At least, MKI of the Skinth.

It includes maximum carry capability with no padding.

-Wave/Charge
-One bit card
-Flashlight/Pen
-Bit Extender/marker



Vertitical Belt Carry (MKII may or may be horizontal carry)



Some side boob action:



The guts, in this one a BO Wave, a loaded Bit Kit, Black Cat Osram aaa light and the bit driver



and a little side by side of the leatherman pouch.



Time to make some colour options.

Yet again, excellent work, great name. I just about decide what I'd like then you make another :drool: worthy product. Like the full length Velcro and the way the belt loop sits higher up the Skinth :tu: If you get time could you take some pics of your ever increasing range of products side by side :think:

who wants one?

I just made it because I had an idea to flush out.

I am working on a horizontal carry one.

Man that is sick. I like the nice thin profile without sacrificing all the carry capacity.

I'd like to see the horizontal one.

I wouldn't mind if i had one on my belt.

I am hesitant to name a price for these. Even though I've figured out the pattern, they're still a lot of work, however, I haven't really seen many products that do as much as this one.

I'll see if I can get a black one going, that'll spark some sales. I am working on The SkinthXL to house a MUT, aside from the molle sheath from LM, there aren't many options for that bad boy.

After seeing the real deal I can attest and recommend Eric's sweet sheath offerings. This one anyway is very well executed.


Stay multi my friends

You can mark me down for one for the MUT  :gimme:

It would be awesome if the MUT version could take a LEDLenser P5 for the light.

  • There, it's fixed!
It would be great if it could have two pockets for the full 40 bit kit.   This is a very clean and well designed sheath that gives you everything you need. Create a website for this and you'll sell a ton!

There wasn't enough traffic on MTO to do this BUT i have set up a FAQ thread with all the current, in prototype and in potentia models at EDCF:

http://edcforums.com/showthread.php/92254-Skinth-Series-FAQ

It's going to be continually updated with the latest questions and formulations for construction etc.

Also, my website has the in production models listed with descriptions and photos:

That's ironic that there's not enough traffic at a multitool forum, for a multitool sheath! =D  But glad there was a home for it at EDCF.

Still feeling my way around here at MTO. How big is the readership here?

Today's Dirty Dozen Thread Necro is this jewel from 2012, and was the start of Skinth Solutions, right here on Multitool.org!

Six and a half years later and Eric's sheaths are pretty well a household name in the EDC community!  I always love to see one of our members succeed!

For the fun of it, here is Eric talking about one of his other product lines on Daily Planet, a daily science show on Discovery!

I cheated... It's a Chinese clone.  :D
Earlier this year, I bought a shard clone, a widgy pry bar clone and a pocket wrench clone, so I could try out a bunch of different pry bar types cheaply.
Hooked, like everyone else. ;)
