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

Gather these things:

· At least 12 ft of 550 paracord
· A sharp knife or pair of scissors
· A source of fire to seal the ends of paracord, or a soldering iron\ woodburning kit.
· One 4, 5, or 6 millimeter side release buckle.
· Any size Fiskars\Gerber hatchet with hollow fiberglass handle.
according to instructables.com contest eligibility is determined weekdays mon-fri. so pile on the votes tomorrow!
seems like ive fixed the voting issue, be sure to let me know
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
