Polishing with a deer bone is a proven method to keep cordovan, oil-tanned and and wax calf shoes, and boots clean and smooth. Our bones have natural oils and the perfect density to remove scratches from the shoes and add shine without causing damage to the surface.
Primarily used for Cordovan shoes, a Deer Bone is used to re-compress the pores and fibers of cordovan, thereby re-smoothing the leather and keeping it looking new.
To use, insert shoe trees into the shoes and apply the larger side of the bone to the shoe, rubbing with a circular motion to smooth scuffs and gouges before polishing. Brush and then buff to flatten the oils the bone leaves on the shoe. Then apply Saphir Renovateur and polish normally.
