The kind Alden uses, your guess is as good as mind.

I'm pretty sure the Kudu G&G uses is actually from Antelope.

Not That I am aware of, but then again I don't have any yet. LOL

However for now I would think Bick 4 when needed would be just fine.

So bick 4 can be used safely on all brands eg, G&G & stcrispin etc

So are you just waiting a week to see how many orders you have by then and will then decide if the Walkton will be able to be posted as well? I have been contacted by more people already with interest in that too! 

 

Walkton in Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry GMTO



Specs:
Price: ~ 8800 SEK ex-vat or over? (kudu upcharge?)
Model: Walkton
Color: Rosewood Kudu / Deep Vintage Cherry
Last: MH71 or TG73
Sole: Oak Bark Sole
Lining: Rioja or Cherry

Interested parties:
@mw313 - (narrow width) (MH71 or TG73)
@TtownMD - (E width) (prefer TG73 but fine with MH71)
@Steel28
@Ironist
@JubeiSpiegel

@harki (E width) (prefer MH71 but fine with TG73)

@nickrut (E width on MH71)  (F width on TG73)

@bsmw (E width on MH71 (prefers)) (F width on TG73)

Anyone still have interest on this one, so we can then have two GMTOs for the Rosewood Kudu?



And just to clarify, the kudu would only be at the quarters (where the cherry is in these pictures above) so the cherry would be at the toe (so the medallion would look okay), the facing, and the heel.

 

Count me please (F width MH71 + metal toe tips)

There maybe some leathers it might not be as good as other things, however I think @Leaves would be better at addressing this. Skoak actually sells Bick 4 and he's generally recommended it. However the only thing I tend to use something else is on Cordovan, where I use sapphire neutral cordovan cream. Not because it may or may not work, but because I have it and the neutral cordovan cream seems to have the desired results I'm looking for.
