    No problem Phil,I've been home from work for two days with gout, so the doc gave me two more days off, this will give me the time to fart around with this pouch and I will post the results for you guys.

    Thank you, Bill.

    Well here she be,I used 70% isopropyl alcohol on .30 cal 2x2 southern bloomer cleaning patches and barbasol beard buster on Q-tips to clean the stitching ( if the can looks old thats because I got it when my Dad passed and I have a full beard and don't use cream ).This is probably as far as I'll go with this because the stitching was starting to fray and whatever brown finish that was original on it started to come off. As you can also see, somebody cut out the interior dividers, look at the knife marks on the front, probably the same bonehead who covered it with polish! The leather is very pliable and it is dated Showa 16 (1941).Lastly can one o you guys tell me how to post photos so they don't come out sideways?

    Thank you for the help guys, Bill

    Looks good. Nice work. The barbasol is an interesting addition that I have not ever used. Good info.

    Looks Awesome. The barbasol does work. Like I mentioned about our new boots. I didn't know why but figured they been doing this for a long time..
    I did a comparison pic instead of flipping back to the other Page.
