My sincerest, deepest apologies for having the temerity to initiate a reply without checking if you were simultaneously typing one of your own, and then posting said reply without further checking to see if another post had materialized in the intervening minutes.
Obviously one of you is talking about cream polish, and the other is talking about wax. And before you tell me that Saphir does not make a "Cordovan" colored wax, yes, you are correct. However, I think it was obvious that PB was using "cordovan" in a generic sense, as in "Use the Saphir wax polish in the burgundy/cordovan color range". You focused on the word "cordovan" but ignored the "wax" in posting your original reply.
(Of course the dark burgundy/cordovan Saphir wax is called "Bordeaux", which is not "Cordovan", as I'm sure you would point out if I did not do so first.)
The level of negative attitude was wholly unwarranted under the circumstances.
A good point and one that I missed.
It turns out we both went to the same school...
This wasn't taught in grammar class when I went to school back in the dark ages, but...
So - cordovan wax...I mean, bordo wax...I mean, burgundy wax...Red, no green, no blue...ahhh
You really need to lighten up.
Where can I get me one of those? Is it made from or is it for?
Both! Most cobblers have them. The Hanger Project sells them.
Just an example - these brushes are not expensive at all and easy to find.
I think you missed the joke... Look at the spelling
Well, fuck a duck...
now i get it....
I'm debating between colors in Saphir's pastewax for my Cigar LWBs - what color does the board usually recommend? I have the bordeaux already for my #8 shortwings.
Secondly - just how tightly do you want cedar trees to fit? I'm right on the cusp between sizes and don't know whether to err tighter or more loose.
If you are right on the cusp I would probably use the smaller size and stick a heel grip or thick moleskin on the back of the tree.
And you need to stop being such a fool....
