You already know you should try to buy tools that'll last a lifetime. But what about your toolbox? Handmade from 75-year-old reclaimed tropical walnut from Nicaraqua, our latest collaboration is finally complete, and it's one you'll want to keep forever. The Poritz & Studio x Uncrate Toolbox is a handsome tool carrier that's been ebony stained on the outside and left a natural walnut on the interior. A simple storage system keeps smaller items in the top tray and larger items down below. It's also a woodworking wonder in its own right, using intricate finger joints for all corners, and a slotted lid and tray that are perfectly integrated with a sleek handle that emerges from the bottom of the box. Standing at a manageable 18 x 8 x 10 inches, this isn't an 8-foot-tall garage beast with speakers and a phone charger, but more of a home for the tools and gear you need quick access to as you maintain your Money Pit. And actually, this toolbox might just make you want to keep your tools even handier — like on a shelf in your living room.
A saw can be a very handy thing to have when you're in the wild. The Filzer Buckster Bow Saw lets you pack one along with you without securing an unwieldy blade to your bag. It has an all-aluminum frame, with a stainless steel tensioning system and a comfortable rubber handle, and can handle trees and logs over a foot in diameter. Yet the whole thing packs into a single tube measuring 19 inches long and less than an inch and a half around, and it weighs just 1.3 pounds so it's easy to pack along with you.
