Multitool sheath recommendations

Post by echo83 » Fri Aug 31, 2018 8:42 pm

Hello all,
I'm looking to upgrade my current sheath that I'm using for my Gerber MP600. I have a nylon one with velcro, and it's starting to show some wear. Here are my specifications:

1.) Snap closure instead of velcro
2.) Synthetic instead of leather
3.) Low profile, suitable for everyday belt wear

I think I'm on the right track with this one, but I'm not sure:

What do you use? Any recommendations?

You could have a nice leather one made. Check Etsy. Lots of great makers on there. Nayscustomleather is a good one. Even if he doesn't list your specific model. He'll make one from your own sent in item. For the same prices as he posts on Etsy. I've had a holster, and two sheaths made by him. He makes sheaths for Buck folding knives. So I know he could make a good multitool one. He may even offer multitool holders.

Thanks, Moab. Those are beautiful sheaths! I'm not totally sold on leather just yet, but it's nice to know there's some good custom work to be had out there.

What did those set you back? Do you remember?

The knife sheaths are $35. The holster $40. Plus shipping.

Custom Leatherman holster $25. And that's for any size Leatherman. I'd assume similar for a Gerber. https://www.etsy.com/listing/610189192/ ... e_active_2 You can also get horizontal carry and open top retention.

Gerber was showing their new nylon sheath that has snap on facebook the other day.

I use an old nylon cell phone pouch with snap.

I will say my stock leather and nylon elastic holder for my Leatherman Surge 300 or whatever the big one is called. Is pretty handy. It has room for a sharpening file. And several other attachments in it's side elastic pouches. I think I would prefer a hand made one though. With better retention for the add on tools. It works fine tho for everyday use.

NiteIze makes a universal multi-tool holster with a snap:

The LM standard issue Wave Tool nylon belt case is quite good in quality and compactness. It can also hold a small Fenix EO1 type flashlight and your choice of a small Space Pen or Mini-Bic lighter or small LM bit kit. I’m just thinking that instead of the pen , you could have a small ferro rod, or Storm Matches & 2 Tinder-Quks, all wrapped in plastic wrap.
