Making Leather More Flexible/supple?

Recommended Posts

I just recently purchased an 8-9oz Hermann Oak double bend, for belts/straps, and it is very stiff, and will only get more stiff with the application of dyes. I know that the leather being as thick as that, it will only get to a certain amount of flexibility, but I would still like to make it more supple, if possible. Any suggestions?

Neatsfoot Oil. Get 100% pure NF oil. Wipe on a light coat of oil. Let dry. Repeat as many times as needed.
