    Thats a lovely detailed post there.
    Just one query I have. What is that red polishing cloth Mr.Hasegawa uses ?
    I think I saw it on a youtube video too.
    Where can I find it ??

    Thanks! :fonz:

    Those polishing cloths are sold at Brift H, but you can easily make them yourself.

    They are strips of cotton flannel cut to 3" x 16".

    First time post but have been lurking now for over a year. Thank you all as I have learned much from you. Thought I'd save everyone the downloading of all eight images separately and combined them all into one reduced size PDF file attached here. Hope I didn't overstep any boundaries. At 13MB, the original PDF was too big to post here so if you'd like the non-reduced size version, please PM me. Thanks again, especially to nutcracker for the translation work!

    Wow, very informative. I've always wonder why there are streaks after I brush my waxed captoes, that's because I've been using horsehair brush, and not goat hair. Good timing.

    As for leather sole care, anyone knows a dealer in North America for the Tapir on page 4? It cost 35 Euro to post to Canada.
