• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I used some of this Saphir stuff on my Natty boots today. OMG am I impressed, I actually liked it better than Bick4 and VSC, worked wonders in bringing them back to Natty. I don't know if anyone else has used it, but this was one time Kirby was right.
He's actually right about a lot of stuff, but I can't stand watching his videos.

Ahh.. thanks, I like their products mucho..
It says neatsfoot oil, but that must be a small component of the mixture, as I have straight neatsfoot and it WILL darken damn near any leather it touches (really, really darkens suede). The Saphir didn't darken the natty boots at all, but did help conceal some of the scuffs, scrapes, scratches that come with wear. They look really good now, compared to before the treatment. Of course, like an idiot, I didn't do a before picture :(
