Great Case

This is a great toolbox. It's gorgeous, it's as tough as the old Gerstner boxes, as it is as thoughtfully designed for its intended role. If you want a case to put your computer tools, modelling tools, or "around the house" tools in, this is an almost-perfect choice. I would have preferred the lift-out shelf to have been full-sized; as it is, it isn't really useful (so I just set it aside and put screws, misc. drill and screwdriver bits, &c in it). For an interior environment with mostly hand tools (and maybe a Dremel or Ryobi), this is the best box to buy.

Store your art supplies, collectibles or small tools in this National by Gerstner N-515 Utility Carrying Case

The interior of the case is lined in felt to cushion precious belongings. Details such as rubber feet and chrome-plated hardware give the case a special touch that makes it stand out from standard carrying cases.

Easy to carry due to the padded leather handle on the top, the N-515 offers a versatile and decorative case that looks as good on top of your desk as it does in your hand. Valuables can be kept safe under lock and key, while the bottom drawer stays closed with pin closure. Due to the warmth of thefinish, the case is an ideal gift for both men and women.

After searching for an artist's toolbox locally, and seeing only plastic or metal, poorly made junk, we found this online. It looked exactly like what we needed. We were thrilled when our artist daughter opened the box! It is a beautiful piece. Perfect tool for the artistic soul! Good job!

I was initially apprehensive purchasing a foreign made Gerstner, but I also didn't want to spend $650 for the comparable US made version......
This International version is top notch.
There hasn't been any skimping on quality - and aside for a couple of changes in some of the accents of the box, I would venture to bet that this box will stand the test of time with it's USA counterpart.

Great purchase!

Great tool/utility box. Solidly built with excellent hardware.

JB, Plant City, FL, February 26, 2011

Excellent, good value. This case is to be used for gun cleaning supplies but may be too nice for that purpose.
This Gerstner International case is made in China, but is apparently made to Gerstner's American specifications.
The joints line up pefectly, the hardware has been carefully attached, and all the pieces are of solid wood, except the drawer bottom, which looks to be a thin 3-ply luan. I did find one stray drop of wood glue on the inside when the bottom drawer was removed.
Overall, this Asian made case is a beauty, and a credit to the Gerstner name.
An Gerstner American made version of this exact case is $320, the least expensive item they make.
These cases, as well as all Gersner cases can become family heirlooms.
That I found this case at an Art Shop, on sale, and with free shipping was a surprise.
Well done, Madison Art Shop!

James Springmeyer, CA, January 02, 2011

Semjaza, Baton Rouge, November 02, 2010

Ralph Hudson, FL, March 10, 2010

Nice deal do not think just buy it, no crappy import Made in USA, a verry sweet tool box.
My use hobby trains.

Tom Bryant, Athens, GA, September 15, 2009

Very nice chest. Using it for firearm cleaning brushes, tools and parts. Madison Art very quick in shipping product. Disappointed in that it was made in China. No keys were in the package.
(Ed. Note: Dear Tom, That was a factory-packed brand-new unopened item that was sent to you. The missing keys must have been a production mis-hap. I will have a new lock and keys shipped out to you for you to switch out. Thank you for understanding! - Sharon)

Jim Carson, Ottawa, Canada, September 14, 2009

The Utility Carrying Case is extremely well made and beautifully finished. It is too nice to use as a tool box. It is sad that it could not be made in North America at a competitive price.

Ed Kramer, Waynesville, Ohio, April 25, 2009

Classy well made tool box at an excellent price. Fit and finish is excellent. Size and usability perfect. My only regret is that it couldn't be made here for reasonable price.
