Thank you very much for your glowing review of the polish pB.

Thank you cbfn. I wish I had a lower price point on the product but orange oil costs over twice what turpentine costs, and coconut oil is considerably more expensive than most other oils available, but I believe they are the best ingredients for the job.

I don't think Saphir is (or needs to be) concerned with me. Saphir makes great products (and their profit margins are much higher than mine). Thanks for the thoughts of grandeur though MWS, they will dance in my dreams like sugarplums.smile.gif

Oh, I was not at all hinting at your prices! Paying a certain premium for what seems like such an excellent problems doesn't upset me in the slightest.

anyone can recommend a good sole dressing to cover some bumps?

I appreciate PB's review. Will definitely have to look into this.

Glenjay - is the link in your sig the place to order the goods? Do you have a webpage? How do we access your product?

I'd use a lot more pressure to get tick deep scratches out and worry about shine once the scratches are out. I myself use a wooden nailbrush wrapped in old t-shirt; that also works well to apply pressure.

Thank you for your interest in the polish.

The link in my sig will take you to my thread in the Buy/Sell section. Within that thread is the link to the GlenKaren Care web site (www.glenkarencare.com) where there is a great deal more detail on the polish, and the shopping cart. This is the same link that pB listed in his review.

Hand welted shoes may use a canvas ribbing, but will always include a leather lip to which the welting attaches.

Goodyear, hand welted shoes do not exist. This would be like saying you have an automatic manual transmission in your car; it is not possible to have both. 

On the question of whether a good year machine has to be used, it doesn't. The definition of goodyear welted shoes necessarily includes all shoes which use only a canvas rib to attach to the upper. This can be done by hand, but the construction is what defines the type of shoe, not the use of machines.

This must have been asked so many times, but bear with me.

 

New shoes: Renovateur & wax or just wax?
