Ideas of anything I can do about this? I suspect I might be fucked as I'm in Australia and I got a friend to proxy them down and shipping was quite expensive...
Polish it with some cream & coloured wax.
They're definitely not worth sending back because, to be honest, you're going to get much bigger scratches pretty soon - unless you're walking on velvet carpet all day.
The leather on these really is quite soft and takes a mark very very easily. On the plus side, they also come good pretty quickly with a bit of love as shown in some of Crane's photos. Those marks right there will seem like a pleasant memory. I'm yet to see someone post a picture in this thread of 1ks that have been owned for some time & don't
look quite beat up. It's just the nature of the beast.
Would like to be proven wrong though!
