Any a you guys got one a these? I just love them because they are just so damned useful. Leatherman multitools are an old concept but I still stick with the original Leatherman. I think this one is close to twenty years old. I have had it forever. Before that I had one of the originals and I replaced it because I believed that the newer ones were better. It must have a million miles on it.
The gasser about the Leatherman is that they make a top notch EDC tool... and then put it in a crappy sheath! This one is falling apart and I have almost lost the tool a couple times because of it. My options are to buy another crappy one from Leatherman or Amazon... but that isn't the answer either. I am going to have to bite the bullet and make a pouch for it.
Although I am a chit house leather worker I have had nothing but grief with pouches of this type. I'd soak the leather, futz around with clamps and rubber bands and stuff to try and form it around the tool itself ... and each time I failed. This time I decided to do it right. I carved a half - assed form and bolted it down to a larger piece of wood and then glued it for good measure. I dragged out the big iron and went to war with this project. The leather is the thickest I have - they use it for saddle skirting. I soaked the ever lovin' chit out of it for an hour.
