USGI E-Tool Ax Sheath
« on: June 01, 2013, 12:23:28 AM »
I replaced my USGI E-Tool Cover with a MOLLE II cover in Woodland Camo.
So, what was I to do with the old cover? Re-purpose it of course.

Pretty cool!
:thumbsup:
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Good idea. 
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Thanks guys!  ;)

Bin,
I heated the ends and clinched them with a pair of needlenose pliers.
I let it cool after that and shaped the material with my Dremel.

I have a bag of those sitting in the garage if you want some.
