Anyone know whether it is safe to use a small amount of mink oil to break in a new brooks b-17 saddle? I was planning to just wipe a reaonable amount on by hand, not soak it in a mink oil bath. I would switch to using proofide after the initial mink oil treatment. Just looking to use something to get the break-in process rolling (and I have mink oil at the house). I've seen Sheldon Brown's article, but he doesn't mention mink oil at all.
