Niwaki ST-Type Tool Box
These tool storage boxes are made from steel in Osaka, Japan.
We have them available in both grey and yellow and the boxes have notches in the top and base so that you can stack one box on top of another. They are a thoroughly useful size - as per the photograph they are big enough to store a pair of Niwaki Mainchi secateurs, as well as the camellia oil and sharpening stone that you might need to keep those secateurs in top-notch condition. The closure on the box is a simple snap shut and the boxes are embossed with the Japanese characters for Niwaki on the lid.
Aside from being a good storage option for garden hand tools they could also be used for more prosaic tools such as screwdrivers, pliers etc or for crafting supplies and stationery.
There is also a larger storage box available - the Y-Type.

Niwaki was founded by Jake Hobson, who was influenced by a trip to Japan to take up what he now calls ‘organic topiary’, and bring to the Western market all the innovative Japanese tools that go with it, and more. When the brand started out, they sold tripod ladders and fine pruning tools, which were selected and sourced from Japan. Today, however, the range extends far beyond that, with workwear, gloves and kitchen knives from Japan all making the considered collection. Kiwaki’s essential edit includes sickles, spades, snips, saws and tool bags, whilst their range includes specialist tools for garden care, wood and bonsai.
