I put this together for a Senior Chief at work who was transferring. All he wanted was a shoe shine kit, this is what I came up with.

Very nice kit. I served 9 years with God’s Glorified Marine Corps. I’m jealous I didn’t have a kit like this

Very nice shoe shine box. A few years ago I really could have used one like this, but now with wearing rough-out boots all the time, not so much. I only need to shine my low-quarters, and those I only wear once in a while.

That is ONE NICE SHOE SHIN KIT, Beautiful wood and superb craftsmanship. In the Infantry Airborne I used to keep a real keen shin on my boots, hours in the making, with a kit like this it would have added rewards, Great job, thanks for bringing up good old memories Mic
