Trusco toolboxes have long been an elusive item, something only seen by tasteful travellers who spotted them in Japan. They lusted after them enough to fill a few pages on Instagram. But now Hand-Eye Supply is selling a whole line of these beautiful blue boxes, and they’re surprisingly affordable.
To call Trusco toolboxes classic would be an understatement. The dead simple design and sturdy stamped steel construction helps the toolboxes do exactly what they’re meant to do — hold tools — without any fuss. Meanwhile, the vibrant, trademark blue enamel finish ensures that the objects themselves stand out. Anyone who enjoys good quality and refreshing simplicity should think about keeping their tools in a Trusco.
The small trunk style toolbox will set you back just $US20, but you should just go for the two-level cantilever toolbox. (It’s pictured below.) At $US84, it’s not going to break the bank, and those gnarly hinges are sure to impress your friends. [Hand-Eye Supply via core77]
