Iam sure this has been debated lots of times . but here is my 5 cents

I foud russian pointe or r class same thing. Has various models. Out of the newells colection i found that almaz has shortest vamp. Lowest crown and is tapered.

They can be special ordered with vamp 0 from russia. They can reduce vamp 1 by .5 cm to achieve vamp 0

Here is my almaz on left foot and polette on right foot as comparison.

Almaz s 44 w1 v0 u cut S shank

Polette s43 w4 v1 v cut mf shank

Vamp on almaz is about 5cm long.
