I have 2 of these & like them but...

I have 2 of these rolls and really like them but there are a couple of things that you need to do to avoid rust if stored in a damp place (e.g. unheated garage/shed/workshop in the UK):
1. oil the tools. The best (i.e. cheapest, simplest & most efficient) thing I have found for this is Peter Sellers "rag in a can oiler" - see youtube for details ;)
2. punch a breather hole in the middle of each pocket (I copied this idea from the plastic sheaths used by Mora to hold their carbon steel knives).
With those 2 precautions, I no longer have a problem with rust. It is worth checking your tools periodically - and heck, use them too if you can! - if they are being put away for an extended period (e.g. a month or more).

BTW re. tannin (raised by an earlier review), apparently wood tannin - which is used to tan some leathers - is protective of carbon steel, it leaves a blue-black layer which is the same protective compound produced by rust converters (apparently rust converters are made using tannic acid or phosphates). Some leathers are tanned with chrome compounds, which can be very toxic to the environment and they encourage rust. I can't tell which type of leather is used here - I don't see compelling indications either way - but wood tanned leather would be preferrable. There are other things that can be used for tanning (brains is traditional for buckskins).

NOT LEATHER !!

I have a, not identical but similar leather roll, which suffers the same problem of corroding the tools. I now have it on good authority (from a chisel manufacturer) that leather absorbs and releases moisture and creates a damp micro climate in the confined pockets which causes the rusting to progress. There is no way round this except to use an anti corroding liquid protector. I now store my carving chisels in a denim roll & have never had a problem.

Rubbish!

I was given a Faithfull Tool Roll last Christmas. I brought it into use about 3 months ago. I sharpened all my chisels and a spoke shave and brought the blades to a shiny finish with a leather wheel. After a few weeks I used a chisel and it, and all the others showed signs of pitting corrosion. I cleaned them up as best as possible and put them back in the roll. Three weeks later - the same thing. I wrote to Faithfull to complain - no reply. I believe the tanning agents used on the leather have not been removed/neutralized properly. Whether acid or alkali, it's aggressive stuff and will ruin your tools.
