Ross saw the Trusco cantilever tool box and sent over a tip, thinking we’d find it appealing. And he was right! The Trusco is one sharp-looping tool box! It even drew a wow from my wife, who at this point is rarely moved by anything tool related.
The Trusco Deluxe tool box was designed by Keiyu Hisashi and measures 14″ L x 8.75″ D x 11.5″ H. It’s made in Japan and is available via the MOMA store for just $110 ($99 for MOMA members).
$110 for a enamel-coated steel Japanese-made tool box seems pretty good, and is approximately what you could expect to pay for modern European-branded cantilever tool boxes, such as from Facom and Hazet.
The tool box folds out on both sides and features two handles that fold together when it’s time to move everything around. There are removable dividers for the two upper level compartments. Looks pretty sturdy too, with reinforced edges and structural components all around.

If you want something a little smaller or less expensive, Hand-Eye Supply is carrying a slightly different and more compact Trusco cantilever tool box for $84.
Thank you Ross for the tip!
If you’re looking for something a lot less expensive, we’ve had good experiences with our Excel 14″ cantilever tool box, which is $20 via Amazon. The Excel is cheaply made, but it’s held up well these past 3-12 years.
