In an ideal world, every man would have a workshop.
A carefully labeled pegboard on which to hang his tools.
But this is New York. Workshops are about as common as a seat on the 6 Train.
And your tools? Who knows. Especially when you need ‘em.
Leave it to some Brooklyn motorcycle enthusiasts to find you a handsome solution: The Original Tool Book from Cotter Pin, now available online.
The Tool Book was originally conceived as a carryall for long-distance motorcycle riders. Your use case: a handy, compact stash pouch with everything in its right place — i.e., no more “Where’s the goddamn ⅜ socket?!”
And it comes sans apparatus, so no chucking out perfectly good pliers — just fill it with your existing kit. From wrenches to screwdrivers to the aforementioned goddamn ⅜ socket, you’re covered.
Pro tip: if it doesn’t fit, you probably don’t need it.
Cotter Pin also stocks a range of other gear, from logo tees to underground moto mags. Our favorite item: the waxed cotton cowboy bedroll, aka the blanket John Wayne would have kept in his living room.
Your own version of a workshop.
Nota bene: Cotter Pin does their production in small batches, and they sell out quick. So we suggest you get on it fast.
