Care and Feeding of Finnish Leather Slings?

Postby Marauder 1 » Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:39 am

My M28/30 came with a very cool leather sling, it's really dark and probably hasn't been cleaned in decades. I want to make sure it stays nice and supple. I have some baseball glove conditioner but I'm wondering if there is something better to keep this around for many years to come.

Thanks
Mark

Well I've seen where they say to clean it with that but then to treat it with either Hide Food or some type of Neatsfoot Oil. But then again there are those who say no to the Neatsfoot stuff.

Thanks

I love Leather Honey. I used it on the extras that come with 91/30s and it makes them look like new. No weird fishy smell either that some oils have. I don't use anything else now.
