Default Leather care

Hi,


I have in my collection this WW1 German cavalry mans belt with its ammunition pouches. I would like to know if for the maintenance of the leather I could use a gun oil like Outers Gun Oil.

I wouldn't used gun oil for leather.
There are other products out there that are more aimed at leather than metal.

Please do not use any type of oil on any leather, wood, paper, cloth items. you will destroy it. Conduct an search on the WAF there are many posting on leather conservation.
