    My very own Knife Roll

    This is something I made about 3 years ago. I've always carry light to work and still do. Never more than 4 knives and even from that 1 is usually never needed. I had a basic nylon knife roll and always wanted something more individual to hall around.

    I had an old worn out leather briefcase that was made in the 70's. I bought it from a second hand store ten years ago for 5€. I used it as a prop at a movie themed costume party as an Indiana Jones messenger bag. Good times!

    The bag sat in our warehouse for years and one day came across it and I thought I maybe could make a knife roll out of it. It was very worn out and dry, but the leather was thick and good quality. I never made anything from leather, but thought how hard could it be. I gave the leather some TLC and surprisingly it came back to life. A few days and a "few" studs later this is what it transformed into.

    ... and been using it ever since for three years every day.

    Great design and execution!
    Alternating the blade and handles is genius!

    Love it. I never liked that knife rolls are ... "rolled". I also like that you acutally put the blade in a sleve, and not the handle.

    Great job.

    What if you want a paring knife? Where does that go?

    The slot in the nakiris sleeve is for that very purpose.
