    For your liner just use the standard 3/$1.00 plastic ones. Even if you have to trim down the top. It would then be universally easily replaceable. I think blair is geeking out a little bit. But I can wait for quality keep up the good work metro. I'm still head over heels for my skinth xl.

    I put two nickel sized "super magnets" down into the bottom of the front two penta-pockets. That way when I need to use some of my other tools I can stick them to the sheath without setting them down or putting them in my pockets. Also, works to on the leatherman bits and extension. The magnets work GREAT!

    It will even hold my whole fully loaded skinth up.*

    I am loving this wera ratchet. Superb quality, reversible, and no more o-rings.

    Very cool.

    Even holds up the ratchet with the gator socket and extension attached.

    I got them at my local "Do it Best" but I'm pretty sure the brand was magcraft. They are some super strong rare earth magnets. I paid almost $10 for 3 of them the size of a nickel. Its really tough to get two of them apart.

    I'm a pocket carry type. I hate having anything hanging off my belt. When I saw the P3, I had to have it. Fits my: Farmer SAK (middle pocket), Fisher pen (right pocket), Gerber Dime and Zebralight H51 (left pocket). Off the paracord hoops: peanut light and emergency cash case. It's actually the P3MT to accommodate for the Zebralight.

    Need a link to that Wera ratchet,please! Found every one but THAT one.Thanx!

    Also want to add: great source for neo magnets online = K&J Magnetics.com.
    Check their 'Surplus' section first.
    Getcha some of their B-444 cube magnets w/ tiny hole thru it.....Excellent retrieval tool for dropped, unreachable objects, if attached to a few feet on mono fishing line...please don't ask how I know!
    Just do it....EDC the tiny cube(s) & @ least 20' of 6# mono.....thank me later!

    Just remember: super-strong neo magnets can wipe out a credit card...or work badge...or iPad or computer....maybe a smartFone?
    I dunno. Better ask Kripto!

    What I DO know: A respectful distance must be maintained with neo magnets!

    I got the imperial set(sae) with the ratchet. Pricey but nice, don't think the ratchet itself is too bad tho.

    I got mine off amazon. It is a bit pricey about 4 times the price of the chapman. But the fit and finish is miles ahead also. The little casting marks in the chapman also drove me crazy. If you like quality tools this is the one. So if you bought the tti go for the wera and if you bought the wave go with the chapman. The bits don't go all the way through on this ratchet like the chapman tho. Just so your aware. But it works great for me even with the leatherman extender. The wera is little wider and shorter than the chapman midget.

    The Wera is one of the items I'll be adding to my Skinth. I WILL put the "L" wrench on the bit case and the Wera in another pocket. Thanks for the info...and the tip about the magnets. Awesome way to keep from having to lay tools on the ground between uses. I think this is my next order:)

    I did it Roman! I finally got my hands on a Spirit..and not just any Spirit..a BO Spirit S!

    I kept these a little secret because I feel like it's bragging but I got some nice little treats for myself to make milestones for Skinth orders.

    On the 50th Skinth order, I got myself a Spyderco UK Penknife Leaf.

    [​IMG]

    On the 100th Skinth order, I got myself a BO Swiss Spirit S.

    [​IMG]

    On the 250th Skinth order, I finally got one of my most coveted knives, the discontinued Spyderco Jason Breeden Captain. I wanted to shoot a photo of it before I took it apart to get CeraKoted (OD Green scales and black blade and liners)

    [​IMG]

    Who knows what I'll get when Skinths hit 500...1000?!

    THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT AGAIN!

    At this rate you'll never make a living out of selling the Skinth, but you're gonna have a lot of cool stuff!!!

    This payday I contribute to your obsession!

    Nice acquisitions Eric. Not too long ago there was a thread at the Spyderco forum regarding the Captain. It was a poll for a sprint run of the Captain. I voted "no thanks" and commented on why did they make such a knife but after thinking about it more and then reading someones response to my comment I'm starting to realize the Captain is a very useful knife.

    Oh and I am going to be working on your next milestone very soon :)

    I've been carrying it for a couple of days now and it's come in handy for a lot of things, the 'recurve' portion holds things down when cutting down, I found the rounded portion great for slicing open envelops and the best of all is the solid, satisfying *swish click* it makes when I flick it open :)

    I am on the lookout for another one..because we all know...2 is 1 and 1 is none.

    Congrats on the success! :thumbsup: Hope you break 500 soon!

    Great acquisitions you got there. Is that the Dutch army Spirit S?

    I don't think so, Sazabi over at MTO had a new one to send me but my buddy Beerplmber has a Dutch army one and it came with a cool sheath.

    We'll compare notes when we meet up to nerd over our matching BO spirits
