A man needs to protect his tool

Step 1: Make a Cobra Weave Bat

The same way you make a paracord bracelet, you make a cobra weave bar.

Step 2:

The cobra weave bar will be used as main structure for the pouch.

Step 3: Length

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.

Step 4: Side Walls

Thanks very much for this tutorial. This is just my second paracord project. I made a pouch for my Swiss Army Knife but I modified it a little. I put a loop on one end of the cobra weave bar but on the other end I threaded the two working ends back under one of the cobra weaves and tied a lanyard knot to act as a closing bead for the loop.

Also, after the cobra weave bar was long enough, I used the loose working ends to do the side stitching, rather than a separate piece. Finally I hid the ends of the stitching in the cobra weaves at the bottom of the pouch.

Thanks again, this was a great learning project.

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.

I made a one for a full sized leatherman, I just double braided it like the King Cobra pattern.

TY Megnine!

I've seen paracord PV (ecig) lanyards for sale but never a good enough pic for me to figure how it was done.

After reading your Instructable, I was able to make my own by slightly modifying your work.

I used Multiple Overhand Sliding/Scaffold Knots to start / finish the Cobra section and attach D-Rings so it can attach to my belt via carabiner or to a neck lanyard setup. I also dropped one side thread to allow for the PV's button.

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?

Thx GreatSage. I'm glad you like it. Like you said, it fits Gerber Dime perfectly.

GreatSage (author)2014-01-24

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!
