I purchased a “Standard Leather Sheath I” for my Leatherman Kick, the black oxide version that came with a nylon sheath that I don’t think is discrete enough for EDC.
The leather sheath is fine, but the sheath is slightly larger than the Kick itself so it rattles when you walk around. So I came up with the idea of making an insert so the Kick would fit snuggly into to the sheath.

Knife or scissors
A sheet of plastic, e.g. a DVD-cover
Self adhesive Velcro or duct tape
Masking tape (optional)

Step 1: Prepare the Plastic Sheet
Prepare a sheet of plastic measuring 6 by
Apply masking tape and draw lines according to the photo.
Step 2: Cut the Plastic Sheet
Cut the pieces of plastic.
Step 3: Apply Velcro or Duct Tape
Apply Velcro or duct tape.
The Velcro keeps the insert in the sheath when you pull the knife out. I guess the rubbery surface on duct tape will have the same effect.
If you haven’t got any self adhesive Velcro, you probably will be able to use ordinary Velcro and a hot glue gun.
At this point I used the lighter to round the edges of the plastic piece measuring 3 by 9 cm.
Step 4: Put the Insert Into the Sheath
Insert “the creation” into the sheath, wrapping it around the knife will make it easier.
