Definitely on board with the natural sole edge, that's my preference as well. I think other MTOs have had multiple sole options before. Are you open to it having a storm welt? (Makes it extra rugged just like the C&J for RL Lindricks/Marlows) Also, color of brass hardware? The ones above are antiqued brass I believe, anyone want the brighter brass seen here on @Gerry Nelson 's shell jumpers?
