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.

For those experts in museum calf.  Do you see much difference between the museum calf from Tannery Ilcea and the one from Tannery Bonaudo.  It seems to me (from pics) that JL Parisean brown calf is very similar to Vass dark brown calf.  Any inputs?.  Thanks
