Hi All,

I still consider myself a rookie in leather work, but I have been making knife sheaths for a little while now and have successfully figured out how yield a pretty nice burnished edge. However, I am not convinced that my sealing process is the "the best". After reading the loads of knowledge on this forum I am now aware that this seems one of the most debated questions.

Products used in order: Fiebings alcohol-based leather dye, bick 4 leather conditioner, eco-flo for leather professional finish

My specific questions: Can Leather balm w/atom wax be added to a edge that has been sealed with eco-flo professional finish (or any finish/sealer)? Will this just be a useless step since the pores are "sealed"? I still don't seem to understand what the leather balm w/atom wax does, and how it keeps dye from bleeding out when wet. Will the eco-flo professional finish be sufficient to prevent bleeding of dye?

Thank you all very much for your input. I welcome all your information and knowledge, and please excuse my ignorance on the subject.
