21p8b Gaucho Knot Multi-tool holder

After Stormdrane threw down the gauntlet making his Paracord sheath, well, I knew that I had pick that gauntlet right back up. Truth is, I have been thinking I would like a woven sheath for my multi-tool for a long time. I was thinking that I would make it using a Turks Head knot. After making a few long Turks Head knots I decided to try making a Gaucho knot to make it look more visually interesting.

This 21 part, 8 bight, 2 pass knot is what I came up with.















Okay, so mine isn't made with paracord, it's not OD Green, and it doesn't have a cover flap. Well, I think I can live with that. The tool is easy enough to get in and out of the sheath but it's not gonna fall out on its own. I'm pretty satisfied.

For the How-To crowd who know about making Turks Head knots, here's the battle plan.
