Hey Calvert: Being as you are now identified as the expert :-) (at least a lot more so than I!) ..... is there a way to refinish scraps and boogers in the surface of a butte leather saddle? I once heard of burnishing bad spots with a smooth piece of bone (maybe I had read that in an old Straight Arrow card. Anyone else remember those?) Recently someone on the list said to never use shoe polish but I confess, using old Military School skills, I have "spit polished" a few cracks and crevices on a saddle or two. I assume that is, in fact, bad? So what can you tell me (and the others CR folks natch!) 'bout this leather business?
