No problem- I am an 8.5 barrie as well and had looked long and hard at Morgan's ad so I am am happy to see the temptation is finally off the market
One more crazy idea: you might try aiming a hair dryer on that crease and then wipe with a cloth and brush again, just to see if that does anything. Mac has always advocated using a hair dryer to help work away the white bloom that forms on some shells, and perhaps that will help with this case. It may be that the creases had filled with bloom that accumulated dirt and gunk and it just needs to be loosened a little. I know my older whiskey LWB emit the most bloom of any of my shells and a little heat does help disperse the oils. At any rate, enjoy them!
I had been checking them for a while as well. Glad I finally decided to pull the trigger. Again, thanks for the advice.

This was my first instinct, then I introduced the deer bone into the mix. I don't mind the time and effort, I'm just not sure that it's working and I don't want to add too much product and run the risk of darkening the shoe. The color/patina is what attracted me to it in the first place. Thanks for the advice.
