Hi what’s the consensus, on what to rub into your leather sheaths to make them supple.
Many thanks

Neats foot oil does wonders for softening and restoring leather, but on a knife sheath it can over soften the leather if you use too much, as you need to keep a bit of rigidity.

Saddle soap, Neatsfoot oil or other animal fats will feed dried out leather and make it supple - light waxes help, boot polish helps (it usually has fats and oils in it), and Dubbin is good too. I make my own dubbin using wax, lard and Neatsfoot....
