We went looking for a good carving tool roll - one that was big enough for fairly large set of carving tools and had fold over flaps so the tools wouldn't fall out. But we couldn't find anything we liked. So we ended up doing what we did in the past with our chisel roll: we made it ourselves. We thought about what we needed, then we read up on what some of the masters, like Chris Pye, had to say on the subject. We're very happy with the result. The tools are stored with the handles in the pockets so you can see which tool is which. You'll find that our roll holds normal size tools easily, with enough room to stick the handles in and out of the pockets easily, but tight enough so the roll isn't sloppy. The pockets are 5" deep, with a 2" space between the two rows. The roll is 20" wide and overall 29" long. Generous tie ribbons are sturdily fastened to the roll so that you can easily tie the roll shut.

The manufacture is totally old school, take a look at the details of the strong stitching, the embroidery, and even the ties which are waxed so that they don't unravel. Tools not included. Made in USA.
"... an excellent carving roll: well-designed and well-made..." - Chris Pye

I would give a 5 star rating to the original black tool rolls TFWW developed, I own four of them & they are excellent. I also own one of the "2nd batch" they've made (the blue ones) & while they're good rolls, esp. the thicker tie ribbons, I do prefer the black ones as they were a little shorter & held the blades of any size tool snugly between the adjacent handles. The blue version is a little longer so shorter/smaller width tools don't reach the opposite side so the handles of the adjacent tools can protect them. This issue is easily remedied by stuffing the pockets containing the shorter tools w/ material so the tool sits higher in the pocket. I wouldn't mind if TFWW brought back the black deign (better color too)w/ the thicker tie-offs of the new version & maybe offer both versions. Over all very happy customer w/ many purchases.
I own this product.
