I used some of it on my P.38 Holster.

It is amazing!

Cleaned it up Did not darken the leather at all.

Did not make it feel oily or waxy.

And cost me about 6.99 for an 8 ouce bottle

Thanks to Lloyd in Vegas!

I recommend this product as well.

Why? Not to be critical but what is the purpose of putting some goo on leather when the best possible outcome is to end up with a holster that is not much worse than it was. If you simply remove dirt and provide the correct storage environment for the holster it will: not darken, not be oilier or waxier, not crumble, not deteriorate in condition, and not soften and lose shape. Why put goo on it and almost surely damage it or hasten its deterioration? Fight the urge to tinker and follow good rules for conservation; your collection leather will be much better for it.

I believe we have two concepts here..

1. Make it soft and supple </u>for use

2. do whatever is needed to preserve </u>for future collectors

Now, all the goo and goop will make it soft and supple..and lovely to handle...but it will hasten the deterioration over time. So, you make a choice...which do you want?
