Case Sheath Ferro Rod Modification
A while back I broke the saw blade on my Leatherman Blast and then the factory belt-case for it broke so I stopped carrying it and started carrying my Swiss Army Knife Camper (SAK). I Use the saw a lot but I really missed having a pliers on hand. Then the other day while working on the "Honey-Do" list I came across my 12 year old Leatherman Super Tool in an old brown after market belt sheath and I decided to start carrying that again. As I strapped it on I got to thinking "Boy I carry A LOT of knives..." (adding the Super Tool put me up to 4. And so I decided to put the SAK in the drawer. This raised the question of "What should I do with my ferro rod?". It felt strange having it float around in my pocket all alone. Then I noticed how my belt case for the super tool was a touch on the big side and had lots of extra leather. So I grabbed my ever present Mora #2 and cut 2 slits into the side of the case and voila'! A ferro loop! Total cost to me? Nothing. That I can afford.
