Staining Leather help

Started by Michael Squier. Last reply by Jan Carter Jun 10. 29 Replies

I have a new leather sheath thats a very light tan color. I would like to make it a dark brown, an uneven aged look would be fine. So, is there a cheap and easy way using something I may have around the house to darken up this sheath? Thanks. Continue

Great test, Ive seen it done before with gun parts and the results were the same. For me I like the wax because it leaves no film for dust to stick to, and if you really dont want your knife to rust dont leave it outside. But it is nice to know the best oil preventative is also one of the cheapest.

Very good video. I guess I know what to do with my knife blades now.

Michael are you looking at a sheath like Greg Dash uses?  http://iknifecollector.com/photo/pikejigged2?context=user

Wow, Just Wow!!  I'm going to order a 5 gallon pail of 3in1 oil.  The author did a good job of explaining what he was going to do, including a control, and then reporting on the results.  I was surprised by the results of both Remoil and the waxes. 

Thank you Jan for posting this video.
