You bring up some good points and options Hayward. People seem to underestimate the value of small impact weapons. People might laugh at the coin sap. That is until they got smacked upside the head with it. The same goes with a heavy metal pen. I carry one made by Surefire. It would make for a good yawara stick if needed. Here in MO our CCW permit laws allow one to carry a good old blackjack which is my small impact weapon of choice. Anywhere else or in places in MO where...
That mark on the side of the boot looks like something a speed hook would leave. I've seen this before and it tends to be caused by the animals that handle packages in shipping. Unless the leather is actually scraped/cut the mark rubs out with a thumb pretty easily.The toe box is damaged and is grounds for instant rejection. We would not ship a boot that has that issue.It's work boot patina only when the person who bought them mashes the toe box.
As my good friend Burt Gummer would say, when you need it and don't have it you sing a different tune. Basically you don't know where, when or even if some kind of trouble will find you.
Oooops. A price increase was supposed to go in effect February 1 on the boots. I forgot to change the online prices. I'll let it slide for the current special.
I'm going start out with something on the lighter side like Lexol conditioner. I'm not going to go trail blazing through some swamp with these. Now if I think I need to go with a heavier oil down the road then that'll happen. That's a bridge I'll cross when I get there though. I will not treat these with a proofer like LP or Snoseal. I do not want these to look like a beeswax finished rough out boot.
I just rediscovered another reason why I loathe snow. The light temperature must be 8000K and thanks to the clouds dead flat. Anyway here's a pic of my Lathams. The color balance is close but not perfect. I like the tiger stripes that are forming on the right boot where it flexes. Anywhere that my jeans rub against the leather you can see light burnish marks. I'm not used to a heavily oiled rough out leather but I'm liking how it's behaving so far.
I'm liking them a lot. You don't have to do anything to the heel if you don't want to. The heel plate is replaceable if you manage to wear it out which I don't think you'll do for a good long while. I switched mine to a lug plate for better heel traction.
Not on the shelf. I don't have them up on the site so that means availability is sketchy. Send Dave an email with the size you're looking for and he can check W's stock.
Sure, it'll be a little while since I'm in the middle of doing some gallery submissions.
