It's like raw eggs, between Caesar salads, steak tartar, protein nogs etc I've probably eaten hundreds of raw eggs and never gotten sick from doing so, but to listen to the food nannies you'd think eating raw eggs is the equivalent of eating plutonium.
Going to put a few pairs of BNIB shoes up on the 'bay in the next few days: Alden Cigar Shell NST with antique sole on the Barrie last in 12D (first quality Bootmaker Edition for TSM); Oak St Black Shell Beefroll Loafers in 12D and Church's Sahara dark brown suede chukkas with an antique leather sole. Happy to entertain reasonable inquiries, but the Aldens will almost certainly go to Ebay.
This is the torch I've got, the Searzall. It works much better than the typical kitchen torch. I'm still waiting for the "steak decorator" from their Kickstarter campaign but couldn't be happier with the Searzall.
The sweaters I ordered are very nice; lighter weight cashmere suitable for layering or wearing on cool nights during the warmer months. They appear to be well-made and the cashmere may live up to the website's hype. The only nit I'll pick is that they use those crappy, dainty European zippers.
