Someone should donate a Vawsh.
Maybe C&J too? Carmina?
For shape and to reinforce the stitchings.
C&J uses gemming as well.
You wanted to see Vwash, so I got you Vwash. Credit to Corium on the now defunct newsaboutshoes.de forum. The Germans are much more inquisitive about shoes than the newly joined SF fashionista.
An old pair of Vwash, circa 1994, dismantled 2008, with worn through insole, and one machine stitched resole that punched extra wholes on the welt. Vwash is extremely well built for the price.
I'm sure most here know of this book, but for those who don't it is one of the BEST books on the art/craft of handmade shoes. It takes the reader through the entire process from building the last to choosing the leather to building the welt, etc.
