Now that's what I call 'heroic cutting'!

 

Want to see them finished. Looks promising.

Hope @Andy57 doesn't mind me posting this image here, but this is a nice shot of his non-split toe Norwegians, originally pictured up thread. Thought I'd share the image since it shows the shape and details of the shoes better.



Also some recently finished shoes posted on Nicholas' Facebook page a few weeks back.

I don't mind at all!

is there a specific name for non split toe Norwegians?

I wager they'd be called Swedes.

The French call a "classic" Norwegian (two side-panels, going from heel to toe, plus an apron) a "Chasse" (Hunting shoe)
and the alternative style with separate quarters a "demi Chasse".

For the Chasse the toe-seam is essential, for the demi Chasse it is optional.

Any reasons why they call those hunting shoes?

Interestig, thanks- I think I like the non split toes, ahem Demi chasse, better.

chogall, they could never be called that as we are not part of Scandinavia. Not Russians either, for that matter, so we're forced to remain unique. Humble as well.

I think Bengal was just relating this to what the French do. I don't think that style is really a demi-Chasse. The Weston Chasse is really tough, clunky, and rustic. Like the Dover on steroids -- triple sole, Norwegian construction, steel tipped toe, etc. Basically built for hunting out on the countrysides. The demi-Chasse is just a slightly toned down version of it. From the image Nicholas posted, that doesn't look like a country shoe at all.

If ever saw a pair of JMW Chasse out in the real country, I think I'd probably have to have a little sit down.

How about "Pretty freakin' cool, can't buy these in no store" shoes? Bit of a mouthful, perhaps, but conveys the right message.

And I do not think the shoes Nicholas is making for me, whatever they might be called, are at all country shoes.
