Just a quick question to see if anyone has any ideas. I've just been given a used highwayman for my birthday, my brother bought it me for a song but it had a couple of very easily fixed problems which are now solved. The only thing is it seems to be leaving black on whatever it touches, I gave it a coat of neetsfoot and then a coat of Obenaufs just because it seemed very dry, not a huge amount but enough to solve the dryness, it's now a really well worn in great bit of HH. The only thing I can think is that the people my brother got it from thought they'd give it a bit of boot polish or something like that, unless there's another explanation I've not thought of, if it is boot polish how on earth do I remove it without damaging the leather? Any ideas chaps?
