Wow...I just LOVE the pouch! Patent pending no doubt.NBD - I used a little thicker wire for the first time and then decided to make the handle a little longer....Yes, I had a reason to make it longer....Just can't remember it!! 1842 tubes using a homemade, hand-crafted, custom designed, appropriately sized, GENUINE, real leather pouch made by me!! Black and gold paracord seemed to look OK....especially since this was the result of the 3rd try at getting something I liked - Kinda of cool here in the mid-west today so testing will be put off until a warmer day....maybe May or June 2020??
