Found Nay's Custom Leather
on Etsy. Perhaps I should of taken a closer took-see. It looked adequate, although I did not realize the sheath was going to be so big. Still, this means it will last many years down the road. It is beefy, and I had to add an extra snap as to shorten the loop.
Would say first off that this crafter must have had more experience with Leatherman tools. Probably little experience with Victorinox save maybe Swiss Tool, and none on Spirits. And the crafter is really generous (is that the right word) on the snap loop.
That's a Charge TTi inside, and notice how much loop there is.
And the Spirit X is not nearly as thick. What I saw was a loop ready to get stuck on something, pull open, and bye bye multitool. Nope! Not going to happen! A remedy was needed.
First thought I could just add an extra snap. Then thought maybe adding the Victorinox badge on, somehow, and that might give the extra length some novelty.
Then stuck the Leatherman Charge TTi in there and the sheath fit that very well since the Leatherman tool is MUCH WIDER in comparison to the Spirit X. Thus why i think the leather shop has had very little experience with Spirit tools - and maybe more Swiss Tools.
Here is side by side comparison of the Nay and Victorinox sheaths. Vic's is thinner, flimsier, and I could see - for me - this was not going to last long. I wanted a sheath that was going to stand up on its own, which I got. Just was not prepared for how thick of a sheath is was going to be.
So here are the three sheaths I have: Victorinox OEM, Leatherman Heritage, and Nay's custom sheath. It is noteworthy that a Spirit X can fit inside any sheath, but there is a lot of play (wiggle room) inside a Leatherman Charge sheath. However, a Charge TTi (Wave) cannot
fit inside a Spirit sheath. The tool is too big in width and thickness. Thus it my second opinion that Nay's has little hands-on experience with Spirit tools.
While I would like to somehow add the Victorinox badge to the loop, I decided to add a second snap. Two snaps are better than one, right?
Besides, was in a semi-hurry to get to work and I wanted to wear the sheath.
The Spirit X goes in better with the locks down, and it seems to hold inside the sheath better. Looks like the maker had clamped the sides inward to make up for the width of a Leatherman sheath. Thus my third opinion on lack of Spirit experience. Still, this sheath is going to last.
Nay's added a pocket in the back for a 4 inch ruler, as I requested. I'll have to keep an eye open for a wider ruler down the road. For the record the PocketToolX Piranha can fit inside, though the Spirit X is super snug inside then. And ... the Piranha is a very tight fit
as well, and is a smurf to pull back out! In time it might loosen up, but I decided not to carry the Piranha in this sheath.
If you want a thick and sturdy Leatherman sheath, this would be perfect! Maybe a Swiss Tool is longer, and perhaps why the snap loop was so much longer? I dunno, have no plans on getting a Swiss Tool to find out.
