A few years ago we received a request from a certain Chef Johnny to produce a knife roll. As a huge Timbuk2 fan, he was certain that we could make something awesome for all the chefs who roll up their knives in makeshift bags or hand-me-downs from their friends and family. It certainly wasn’t the first time we’d received requests for special bags over the social interwebs. Some of our best selling bags were the brain-children of our beloved fans; such winners include the Snoop Camera Messenger and the Stork Diaper Messenger. We love food in San Francisco and going out to eat is a way of life, so we thought about the great chefs who feed us and knew the knife roll would be a hit. Our design team worked with Chef Emmanuel Eng of Maverick to perfect the product, and our friends at Delfina are testing it now.
Fast forward to 2012, we finally get the first samples of our new Tool Shed/Knife Roll. And right when we announced its arrival, we heard from Chef Johnny, and suddenly we had our first tester. There you have it folks!
So remember, we’re listening and your product idea may be next up!
