A man needs to protect his tool
The same way you make a paracord bracelet, you make a cobra weave bar.
The cobra weave bar will be used as main structure for the pouch.
Make sure the cobra weave bar is long enough to wrap it around the tool perimiter, minus one side to be left open as the pouch mouth.
With a paracord lacing needle, weave to side of the pouch, in and out as shown om the picture.
Keep weaving from the mouth of the pouch, to the bottom, then cross to the other side and proceede weaving from bottom to top.
place the tool inside the pouch, adjust the side weaving by loosening or tightening as needed to assure a smooth fit.
Tie the ends of the side weaving, trim any excess and use a lighter to melt the ends.
surprisingly, it also fits the Gerber Dime Multi tool
We have a be nice comment policy. Please be positive and constructive.
you can double the cobra weave and then it can fit and a larger knife. or even a zippo lighter
I made one for my Swiss Army Tinker Knife and it fit perfectly.
I also added a little sheath on the side so I can carry it on my belt.
Nice safety scissors too. lol
I made a one for a full sized leatherman, I just double braided it like the King Cobra pattern.
Just finished one for my Snap-on multitool that I received as a gift. Great way to carry it around seeing that it doesn't come with a spot for a keychain. Thanks for posting!
Could this be modified to fit a Leatherman Freestyle or a larger Gerber?
Made one of these today and it fits my Gerber Dime perfectly! It's really nice to be able to carry it around in my pocket now without the paint job getting scuffed up. Oh and you can also use something like hemostats to pry the sides of the cobra weave open for the sides of the pouch. But good idea. :)
I own a leatherman squirt myself, and I've really put it to the test through making my instructables. This could really protect its paint finish! Neat idea!
