M4 Bayonet Leather Question

I have a Utica M4 bayonet and M8 Scabbard.

Can anyone recommend a product to recondition and or preserve the leather handle. Pretty decent shape, but dry.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Respectfully,

Wes Lee

The CMP forum recently had a thread about your issue:

Not sure if it is kosher to link another forum?

Pecard leather lotion will do the trick.
