Picture of Alternative carry for Fiskars\Gerber hatchet
Fiskars\Gerber hatchets. Great lightweight camping tools, versatile, and reliable. The downside? The included case limits carry options. i have decided that i could solve this issue with materials i had lying about, and show a new and different way to carry small handtools in general.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

I did something similar with my fisker axe. I modified a file to fit in the handle and pinned in place at the hole. That way I can touch up the bit while working in the woods.
Good instructable, its not in the paracord contest though because i attempted to vote for it! Try to enter it again and I'll be sure to vote
