I'm curious about what kind of oils (& waxes) Horween applies on shell.http://www.selectism.com/2012/05/04/inside-horween-leather-shot-by-nick-horween/"Vegetal tanned" is not in ASTM D1517-06 Standard Terminology Relating to Leather and DICTIONARY of terms used in the HIDES, SKINS, AND LEATHER TRADE, so it seems not to be a technical term.BTW, here are examples of natural and chemical materials for shoe...
I read "functional", but it was too abstract for me to understand. Now I understand discussion here with the author is essential for you.My view is this: When I read your opinion quoted by someone on another forum, if its source is given, its credibility isn't lost. I think non-experts may have a conversation with experts but that non-experts cannot have a discussion with experts, so I accept inconsistent experts' opinions as they are. You may think I denied your opinion,...
I'm anonymous, but owner of each excerpt isn't. I don't understand why this is problematic.Of course I know, so I wrote this thread, not my thread.
I totally understand your complain. Accepting it means asking an administrator to delete this thread. I thought you knew how this thread started, but you don't seem to know it.It was suggested to me at The Official Shoe Care Thread to gather my excerpts on that thread together and post them as a new thread for convenience. I try to select as accurate information as possible. If you find mistakes, please correct them. If you still dislike and feel uncomfortable about this...
To DWFII,I'm sure nobody has interest in our back-and-forth conversation. Let's drop it.I guess it doesn't smell good because of fish oil. FWIW, here are a link to Amazon and Forwarding Service/Buying Service from Japan.http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/switch-language/product/B004M12R8G/ref=dp_change_lang?ie=UTF8&language=en_JPhttp://www.tenso.com/en/guide/buy/index.htmlhttp://www.tenso.com/en/agent/index.htmlI don't know how reliable tenso.com is:...
Unlike autoxidation, dehydrogenation doesn't occur in the open air, does it?Water vapor permeability of mineral oil isn't bad, while that of petrolatum (Vaseline) is certainly bad.http://www.dowcorning.com/content/discover/discoverchem/si-industrial-apps.aspxBTW, the below wax is used by Redel Ogawa (curriers of shell cordovan) and sold by Hasegawaya (Redel Ogawa's leather care department). It consists of natural fish oil, mineral oil, and carnauba...
Adams LeatherWorks is an expert on holsters.Clarence E. Kapp (Kapp Brothers Shoe Mfg. Corp.) is an expert on shoes.John Arthur Wilson, Sc.D. is an expert on leather.The American Leather Chemists Association is an expert on leather.James Saddlery Australia is an expert on saddle.American Leather Producers, Inc. is an expert on leather.......If you have no objection on my excerpts, let's drop it.I thought you implied your experience was scientific.This is "making a fool of me".
Let's get this straight. Which my excerpts are hearsay? Only Pecard?If you read carefully them, you must have noticed that experts wrote them. Unless you point out mistakes, you just want to make a fool of me: Hey kid! Watch out for a passing Internet!
My experience of Red Wing Leather Conditioner made by Pecard...explicitly work boots...is not scientific. It's just my opinion. As you write, the following is essential for science. Could you let us know materials, methods, and controls about your experiment? If you have some photos, that is even better.
I don't think that is good taste, but as you like it. (Is Rolf Wilhelm von Osten's nickname?)Petroleum oils are used as fatliquors. Do you make sure not to buy a leather fatliquored with petroleum oils?http://www.mardenwild.com/products.htmlThat assumption is unfair. To me, just disagreement happens between Pecard and you. Do I have to e-mail Pecard to verify that they really wrote that copy & paste?I would like you to understand the difference between personal experience...
