“Bruh, this Toyo Steel Co. Steel Cantilever Toolbox ST-350 goes so hard”. Literally – It’s steel. Toyo Steel Co.’s metal boxes are some of the coolest buy-it-for-life wares we’ve ever seen, and present yet another way to incorporate Japanese craftsmanship into our lives.
They’re beautiful yet completely functional, assuming you have things you need to store in them like arts and craft supplies, jewelry, cooking utensils, various wires for all of your obscure electronics – and, oh yeah, tools. Even if you’re a minimalist, there’s something to appreciate in this low-key, simply designed, durable piece of portable kit.
Toyo Steel Co. Ltd has been forming steel metal boxes in Osaka, Japan since the late ’60s, and time has proven their mettle, with these metal boxes finding their function in homes around the world since then – even in places where there isn’t much work getting done.
The Steel Cantilever Toolbox is available in three sturdy-looking colorways for $129 at Manready Mercantile.
