Hi, I have some W&C harness leather and I really like the feel of the stuff. The only thing is that the stuff is really really easy to scratch and dents easy. I run an edger on it and the edger feet leaves light crease lines in the leather. Do you guys have any ideas on how to remove light scratches and impressions from e leather? Thanks.

Andrew

I had an excellent piece of Show Harness from them. Yup, it scratches easily. I found that if I rubbed my hand over the light scratches they would come out. I even got a fairly significant one out that way, it just took more time.

I sometimes use a piece of scrap leather... moistened. Smooth side to smooth side and burnish marks away with that. Seems to work pretty well especially on those centerline marks for belt holes.
A teacher pointed at me with a ruler and said "At the end of this ruler is an idiot." I got detention when I asked "Which end?"
