and also along with this thread, japanese cordwainer get more recognisition as they should be

thanks for your kind words! and there's also other great posters here on this thread too... smile.gif

It's really nice to see how Japanese shoemakers are getting more international recognition, with interviews on Keikari or Claymoor's List, GQ, and so on....

Also on the bookstand


The World of High End Shoes. Vol 1~3 Archive Version

An awesome reissue, and a great resource book. Vol 1 (2002) and Vol 2 (2004) are hard to get these days, and used copies go for high premiums on online auctions.

This monstrous book combines all 3 issues, cover to cover. Not sure if a digital version will be available though.

Oly shat. Time to order that 1-3 archive.

Interesting how the Berluti article focuses on Delos instead of Rock. But Casalonga got a picture of his hair. Lol

There is nothing Delos signature-specific about using that sort of a knife:


Terry Moore (Foster & Son)



Herve Brunelle (last and shoe tree maker)


Many (but not all) serious last and clog makers use it to this day.

Originally a clog makers knife, it enables large quantities of wood to be removed quite quickly.

Thanks! Indeed. I was in Hawaii a week ago and was able to buy Edoya brushes from Leather Soul. 👍

Unfortunately Edoya doesn't take orders from overseas (or ship overseas). I don't think they have an English speaking staff either.

The only place I know that sells Edoya brushes is Leather Soul Hawaii.

Hi guys!

I need your help again.

I will be in Seoul next month. Does anybody know where I can buy Carmina, Loake, and Church's shoes in Seoul? Thanks again.

Delos looked so cool in that youtube video, I thought he had a copyright to the method rolleyes.gif

I love that Terry Moore picture
