After investing in some good quality tools, looking after them will further ensure that you will have many years of good use out of them. A tool roll is the ideal way to preserve your tools and also to transport your bonsai tools to and from workshops, club meetings, demonstrations and more.
These tool rolls have been made with very tough and hardwearing, washable cotton fabric. The flaps prevent the tools from falling out of the roll and also protect the tips of tools such as bonsai trimming scissors and jin chisels.
Many people use tool boxes or tool caddies. The problem with these is that it is very easy for tools to get damaged from rubbing up to one another, and your hand can pick up serious injury as you go fishing through the tools trying to find the one you need.
The tool roll is rolled up from the left and the ropes provided are then loosely tucked in to prevent the roll from opening up once again, until the tools are needed.
This really is a very useful addition to keeping all of your bonsai tools together. I suspect it will also counter the lazy habit of packing away dirty tools! My only suggestion is that given the size of our tools a few more pockets could have been added within the same dimensions.
Thanks so much Arthur for the feedback. When we designed the pouch we considered how many and how wide to make the divisions or pockets. In the end, and after testing it with various combinations of tools we decided that fewer were better as it allowed more versatility for the user. This does mean the tools can slide around a little easier when the roll is open but once rolled up the tool roll serves its purpose well. Thanks so much for your input though, we love these kinds of constructive comments from customers and perhaps we will relook at the design some time and will take what you have mentioned into account.
