WOW....that Gerstner box is pretty awesome!

I just received a very cool birthday gift from one of my friends:

He made me this!

It's pretty genius in the fact you can get a good shine and some down force from the dowel rods that are used...like this:



That's probably the most thoughtful gift I've received in a long time. He knows I'm a shoe nut and his wife said he's just enabling me. I opted for a pecan stain.

What do you guys think?

Got mine last week. It's a beast but I love it. Thanks again for the PSA.

Note, their sale is ending tomorrow. http://gerstnerusa.com/opencart/index.php?route=product/category&path=72

Mine is the "12 Repair Kit" in Walnut. 

That is an awesome addition to a quality shoe collection.

I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that I'm going to have to give up my Blackbird Creamery boots and find a new pair of black shell boots. I love the boots, but they are just too small.

Any recommendations for something very similar? I like the commando sole for the Seattle weather, and would like Barrie or Grant for the last.
