Anyone who has read my blog knows my love for tools…

…And it just stands to reason, if you have nice tools, you need something nice to put them in.

Roll 1

Over the past few months I’ve had the honor of collaborating with the fantastic people behind EH Works on the design of this beautiful knife roll!

Heres a look at the finished product!

Being a bicycling enthusiast, one of my favorite details, and an EH Works signature, is the old school bicycle leather toe-strap clasp design.

we  also worked in an easy access small tool pocket on the outside of the flap, opposite of the knife handles, to even out the bulk of the roll when it’s rolled up.Roll 2 Plenty of pockets for anyone “arsenal” of toolsRoll 3 I really like the smaller front pocket for my smaller knives..roll 4 and especially the “sharpie” pockets on either side of the bag!

roll 5It was such a fun project to work on, and I really admire the amount of work EH Works puts into the design, re-design and multiple prototypes of all their products (buy the way, they make some other super sexy tool rolls as well)
