    Nowhere in Melbourne has it. You'll have to order online and pay exorbitant shipping fees. I have one I bought from The Hanger Project. Happy to sell you it.

    As an addendum for other frequent posters and friends here (GN, PS, et al) - can't even take myself seriously now that I'm selling deer bone hahahaaa

    If any place stocks deer bone accessories, they might be able to order one with their next batch. I did a group order for us a while back and got them from Abbeyhorn out of the UK. ~$30 for one landed, iirc, less with more.

    Joiji, did you get me my one? I think you did. Anyway, I don't use it - I still find the Mac method works fine for polishing cordovan :)

    Hot damn Joiji...missed that boat big time! Obviously should have paid more attention to the thread. Mr Brownman...I did go down the Hangar project pathway (Kirby has got some really nice stuff!) but unfortunately customs got it and the rest is history! I will now pm you!

    iSurg, I'm interested in what made Macau the best day trip ever for you. I was there for a week in January. Some interesting Portuguese/Asian fusion culture and architecture on the Peninsula. Massive Casino/Mall/Hotel complexes on the Island. Good gold prices. Cheap and impressive Chinese mainland food. On the other hand, appalling air quality, a pervasive gambling and shopping culture, and a decrepit city area outside the World Heritage and Casino precincts. I found it in parts interesting, challenging and depressing. Much like most cities (or SARs) I suppose, but I found HK a far more stimulating experience.

    Sorry fxh....no not related to said performer...unfortunately it s a nickname that stuck after a friend of mine saw a paperbook in Paris with said creature on the front and thought I resembled it in my uni days..quite unflattering but sentimentally comforting for old times sake (I guess)..

    And yet my order of 3 bones slipped through. Oh your's came Fedex, mine came Royal Mail which would have gone through AusPost, might have been the reason.

    Willy De Ville a sadly under appreciated artist. Now gone.

    There was a time when musicians looked good and young men didn't aspire to look like pensioners or homeless alcoholics
