I have never tried a kit. Might be good to get some nice pattern

[It's not failure if you learn something from it]
Idk about over your way but here’s an idea of what I was talking about. It’s a combo, knife/flashlight. But as you can see it’s made specifically for a maglite, as for the knife/tool idk? But you get pieces pre-cut and ready to put together, same with the button along with the needle and thread. What you don’t get is the design, the leather is just plain so you can make it the way you want, but they do put the pattern on paper for the possibility..

Ok, then I'm with you!

not exactly a sheath but a pocket caddy  :whistle:



and it's homemade, but not by me, but rather by our always awesome friend Nix here  :tu:



I've been carrying it for the last week every day on my vest pocket, and it's really good for easy access, keeping the stuff I put inside straight and looking good,  :like:



three things I wouldn't have achieved if I had tried to craft this caddy myself  :facepalm:
This will come with me tomorrow, I use it even on weekends because it looks so cool and works so nicely ::)


My toys:

MTs: Surge (2x), Skeletool CX, Rebar, Blast, Fuse, Micra, Squirt (3x), Wave, Crunch, Mini, Spirit (2x), Pro Scout, MP700 (2x), Diesel, Powerlock, PowerPlier (2x), PocketPowerPlier, Blacktip , ST6 (2x), 5WR, A100

SAKs: Bantam, Executive, Ambassador, Minichamp, Classic Alox, Champion, Farmer, Explorer, Swisschamp, Golf Tool, Wenger Champ, EVO 52, Pocket Tool Chest

Cool!

I'm glad that is working out. I haven't used mine for a little while, but it seemed pretty durable. Let me know how that one wears.  :tu:

Nice caddy! Does it feels lighter in the pocket with the different weight distribution?

I have found that the caddy, makes carrying somethings, a Buck 110 for instance, much more comfortable.  :tu:

unclipped multitools and ca.4 inch folders without a clip carry very well in the bigger pocket  :like:
SOG PPP and Buck 110 as an example



smaller pocket for SAKs and lighters, short pens or lights

Nice caddy! Does it feels lighter in the pocket with the different weight distribution?

feels lighter and doesn't move around sitting in awkward positions  :salute:

Here's my first and only crack at making a sheath. I needed a larger sheath for a modified Rev, so used my Wave sheath as a guide.
One added feature that is quite handy is the elastic pocket inside so you can carry one of the plastic bit holders.

Would have been a nice fit otherwise........





At least I know the knife is sharp: it went through 7/8oz leather like it was butter.   :-\

If at first you don't succeed......

Made another sheath for the new knife today.

This time I used some 8/9oz leather and added a second welt to the upper half (to match the handle).




For some reason (perhaps adding an extra welt or the thicker leather or just not on my game) this sheath more difficult to make than the first one. And it didn't come out quite as nicely.

But the big difference is that it seems to work.   :rofl:  It still needs some oil and wax, but I'm confident this one will doe just fine.




I did angle the belt loop slightly to give the handle a slight forward cant. Not sure how that will work out, but I think it will make using the sheath a bit easier. Time will tell.
