    Many years ago I did. It darkens the leather. I would not use it again.

    Go for Renaissance Wax if you wish to use something.

    I've used mink oil on leather, it doesn't seem to darken it as much.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Ive used it for years with no issues and great results .
    It all depends on how degraded the leather is i guess , looking at your photos id say its a big ask whatever you use.
    I find its best applied very lightly , allowed to sit for a few weeks , then buff by hand and reapply and repeat as needed and you will get a result.

    Works for me , Im sure there are other products that do the same job but It really is a game of patience.
    I have had great results on dirty blackened leggings and sam browne belts.
    And I put a light rub on my minty gear every couple of years to keep it in great shape.
    Cheers Rick

    Here is a good example,
    These Australian WW1 Light Horse leggings were pretty much black with dirt and use , dry though non cracked , luckily.
    Overall it took over 6 months to bring them back to original colour and condition.
    Light wipe , sit for 3 - 4 weeks , buff and repeat & repeat.
    Cheers Rick
