maybe traditionally but that's far from the case now


it is impossible for a bal boot to have speedhooks i would think...
it wouldn't make sense structurally

Yep. Too much human work from manufacturer's side ended up with a blemish! #firstworldproblem shog[1].gif

its no biggie. plus with the rare shell/rare models, you kind of have to take the good with the bad.

Relevant user name? haha.

That's what I thought, although I thought only men worked at the dirty part of Horween Tannerary (from the documentaries that I watched biggrin.gif )

I am looking at the bump real closely, and the coat is thorough; without making a slit, pulling out the hair would not be possible. Would you suggest doing this, or should I contact J Gilbert about this?

Thanks for response


i would just do it, because no matter how deep it is in the finish, its can't penetrate the shell itself.
also, I've put deepish scratches into shell and been amazed at how easily they brush out.

Really?

 

I'm always able to get the color to even back out, but the indentation always remains.  Are you saying you are able to get the indentation to brush out?
