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 :(

Just to be clear you used this on Natty CXL, right?
