    I found Rollgut many years ago via Kickstarter and was a backer. Sadly it didn't receive enough supporters but I am glad to have found it via Etsy. I have just received my Rollgut and couldn't be happier - well worth the wait!

    I was one of the few lucky people that could receive the prototype version of the Rollgut. Two years later here is the finished version and it is a JOY. Craftmanship has gone up to star level, every part is better and although my proto was already a masterpiece, this is another galaxy. The Rollgut is my to go sketching tool as we speak and I could not be happier. I rave quite a lot on my IG about it ans show what for a good tool it can be, come and see yourselves!

    I'm always excited to get known, a Rollgut is in regular operation out there! The early prototypes told the story of a beginning and I'm glad, you too see - in contrast to where it's today - the beauty in it! Shall some sharp pencils and inspiration always be with you dear capricorn_tm!

    Fantastic experience. I asked Thomas if he had tried purpleheart wood. After he had acquired a sample, I now have the first ever purpleheart rollgut! Thomas was really open to my ask, and I am so happy it worked out. My rollgut is perfect, and coming with me on my holiday as a minimalistic journal❤️

    I know, how much the right colors and materials count for my own odds and ends. Clearly, your desires added more work but on the other hand I am gifted with the piece of mind, you'll for sure not lock your Rollgut into a drawer too soon 😁 - Following the intends of others can also unveil new perspectives to your own creations: during our session, the black wrap received an iteration and is now xtra plain black. Vegan leather, Yarn, Logo - black like the night. The purpleheart wood you've asked for turned out to be a gorgeous pick. However, as I only have 2 pieces, I can't offer these publicly right now. Thanks for the trip and your patience 🙏 😌 dear Kate!

    I was an original purchaser of the first prototype of Rollgut and I was surprised by how the already high quality has reached stellar levels. - The wood is top quality as it should, cut perfectly and without a hitch in the grains. - The new metallic clip bites strongly on the paper and I have not the issue of the prototype of the pages sometimes sliding out wen unrolling the Gut. - The new rivets on the cover bypass the issue that I had with the prototype of the elastic cord breaking off from the stitches ( minor issue, quickly solved) - The cover quality has improuved and feels stronger and easier to use. I vouch for this product without any reserve, if you are a urban sketcher like me, you are a pocket away from having a mini drawing studio in your hand. Go for it!

    Thank you so much Capricorn 🤩 Your Review builds on serious long-term experience and is especially meaningful to me. Never stop drawing!

    Worth the long wait. Quality is high and the experience with it is great.


    Thomas responded on Jun 14, 2023

    Oh I hoped some people see the value in slow but oho! May your Rollgut be a life companion to you Zhuoloun!

    Wow, just wow! This is a wonderful all-in-one writing instrument and paper holder. Well thought out, beautifully made, and heirloom quality purchase. Might get another as a present.

    You know what warms the heart of an artisan 🥲. Thank you for sharing your impression Leah!

    Rollgut is amazing. I hoped for a lot but received even more. Yes it is "only" A5 format but bigger wouldn't work with the "on the go" theme. I had it now for some time and could test it in different locations (even on a not-so-good-bench at a playground while my kids were playing) and I'm very happy. It holds more than enough paper, is slim enough to fit in bags and backpacks, doesn't smell and feels good too. The box is big enough so I could fit in 2 pencils with "plug-on" sharpening boxes. It's great I can recommend it wholeheartedly.


    Thomas responded on May 30, 2023

    You have nailed Rollgut's specificity Paul. Thanks for taking much care for your Review! I wish many inspired sessions for you and your offspring to come :)
