The Style 2007 Classic Chest is the new Gerstner classic, with its roots deeply intertwined in our history. Its inspiration comes from the Style 41 series, our most popular from the 1920s to the 1980s—when Machinists and Tool & Die Makers could walk in for a job and be instantly recognized for their skill by the Gerstner they carried.
We wanted to keep what made the style 41 prized through seven different decades, yet modernize it for a new generation of craftsman then we modernized it for a new generation of craftsmanship. Jack Campbell designed the 2007, and it stepped smoothly out of its predecessor’s shadow to become the best-selling chest in our line. It features some of our finest advancements over the years–more durable hardware, an upgraded finishing process, stricter tolerances in our manufacturing techniques, plus taller and deeper drawers for modern tools.
The 2007 also takes the portability of the Style 41—with the side handles and locking front panel—to new industries and collections. It’s perfect for collectors of coins, jewelry, fly tying, knives, sewing and wood turning. If you want to show your prized possessions with iconic Gerstner style, this is the tool chest for you.
