Do you think that's a good idea and do you recommend anything in particular? I've heard nice things about obenhaufs, actually i think dwass recommended it to me a while back.

As a rule I hate sharing PII over the interwebs. Call it paranoia and I would probably agree.
Nice purchase. While you don't HAVE to wait before polishing leather, it makes sense on rugged boots.

To protect them, Obenauf's Heavy Duty Leather Protector and Montana Pitch Blend are the top products in my mind. I think you'll be good either way.

When you do finally want to polish them, I would use a cream paste instead of a wax paste. The wax paste will give them a finish more like a dress shoe, which I assume you don't want. Instead, spread on some paste, let it sit for a few, and then brush the shoe with a horsehair brush. It'll be a healthy, but not shiny, finish.

Lastly, name + occupation is not PII by any legal standard

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
