Thanks for the kind words trogdor...all the antiquing is EG factory. I have not touched these (yet)

Thanks EL! I am fortunate in that all the EG lasts seem to fit me well. I have to admit that I like all their lasts and think that certain shoes favor certain toe shapes. While I like the Dover on the 888, IMHO the 606 is the classic last for that particualar shoe.
