After the steel is prepared, it is smoothed before being gathered and all the tools are stacked almost like a sandwich, with the different tools being separated by aluminium strips and pressed together. Finally, the tool is put in its case, which comes in a range of colours such as black, blue or red, and pressed together to secure the tool in the casing.
