I just received my pair of Vass Museum Cognac Double Monks(same as Renault78law) and asked Rezso about renovateur and polishing products. Here's his reply:


"I am using renovator rarely. Mostly wax polish. The matching one to each color. For museum calf brown I am using brown and each year once the neutral color. For gold I am using maroon, tan or light brown."


He also uses Bergol products that you can find here:


He especially likes palm wax.
