Hello All .... I carry a Leatherman Wave everyday, and could not live without it .....the “man-made material “ cases wear out .... so I  made a few cases. Here are a couple of  “lefty” cases. Pretty basic, Barry King tools, basketweave stamped ....  but much better than a cloth/nylon case imho.

I like the simple design  and the tooling is very crisp. Well done and 2x on the wave for sure.

Thanks guys ..... I appreciate it. The simple design is actually a tweaking of a design from Bruce Cheney.

A lovely home for a great tool to have on you! That is some excellent, deep basket weave there.

Thank you .... the key for me has been high quality stamps .... Barry King in this case  ...... and proper casing of the leather.

Were these wet molded?
If so, how do you keep the tooling so crisp and sharp when molding?
They look wonderful!

Thank you .... they were not wet molded .... after sewing, and before applying any finish, I got them a little wet, placed the tool in, and then let it dry completely ..... then I applied the stains, finishes, etc.

Those are very nice! Machine stitched? Would you mind showing the back to see how you did the strap?

G'day,

the basket weave isn't always easy to do, I've made my fair share of 'mistooks'..... er...mistakes with B/W  ,  but that looks great, even the case without any staining looks great .  

I have never used copper rivets on any of  my leather projects , mostly D/C rivets or stitching ,  but perhaps I should give them a try. It does look nice  :)

Thanks Handstitched ..... in most cases regular rivets work just fine .... I use copper rivets when I want to make 100% sure it won’t come apart.

Very nice craftsmanship, sir! The copper rivets are indeed strong...and classy! Many thanks for sharing the "internals" to your handiwork!
