Pappy’s Dubbin’s Cousin for Rawhide is a soap product made from Premium Dubbin using a complicated process and that process is reflected in the price. It is twice the price of the other Pappy’s products but it’s redeeming quality is it is better for rawhide than anything on the market.
A rawhide braider can apply this generously to the strings after cutting them from wet rawhide and it will help reduce the mold growth until the job is finished. Some braiders apply it to dry rawhide for overnight casing, add some more with a little water the next day and proceed to braid. Braiders report the strings lay and stay flat and buff up beautifully when the job is done. It has a higher PH and can be hard on hands so if you are in it for hours you might need to protect your hands.
Some customers like what it does to leather as well. One customer said that I, Pappy, must be a genius for inventing it, and that it makes him look like a genius, to his customers when he uses it. It works well to clean used rawhide equipment and often brings the used rawhide tack right back to original beauty. It can replace saddle soap for cleaning leather goods. It has unique qualities found no where else on earth.
