    I have a custom leather roll hand made by my girlfriend. Hand stitched semi brown suede with a canvas lining. Pretty simple, trifold design with 10 slots (3/4/3) and closes like an old school manila envelope with 2 sets of sewn-on old brass coins and some braided waxed thread that you figure eight around each pair of coins. I keep my work knives in the roll and have a separate cloth roll for spats, spoons, markers, etc. I worried about stains and such before, but after the first one, it's become kinda like a patina. Working on getting sayas for all my knives, but for now some of them just don't have em on and it seems to work fine.

    I'll work on it, gf is out of town with her camera. I'll try to get a gallery post up to of the growing (slowly now) collection of knives. It's probably the nicest thing I own to be frank. All hand stitched. Second one she made, first one was stolen about a year ago.

    Just recieved the Boltric 18 pocket black leather bag fr. JB Prince.It is made fr. water buffalo hide in India.It is well made,soft leather.Smells good,holds quite a few knives even wt. Saya's.Good design even slots for pens & buss. cards.I was pleased that it was much more impressive than in the pictures online.

    To me this is a worthy bag to carry fine Japanese blades.Leather is the best as long as your not one of those vegan types
