A few years ago my grandfather died, but we didn't go through ALL of his things until recently because my grandmother died last month. As difficult as it's been, I've found a few things to hold onto that will remind me of them. One of them is the horn shoehorn that my grandfather used since before I was born. It's really lovely, and from england, but a bit brittle and I'm concerned about it. Is there any sort of treatment anyone knows that might allow me to extend its life and use it, or that might allow me to keep the edge from starting to peel apart. Any help would be really appreciated.
