How To Burnish Brass - Antique Brass Pens & Other Objects - Galen Leather

There is something charming about the aged, antique look of brass. This is why, in true Galen Leather fashion, we created our Brass Collection of brass rulers, measuring tapes, paper clips, letter openers and more. We love antiques and we love the handcraft nature of these fine tools.

It's important to take care of your brass tools though, to avoid unsightly oxidizing and aging. The occassional touch up can keep it from clouding and create that coveted shiny finish. In this video, we show you to burnish and polish brass pens and other object using one simple tool - steel wool. That's right, no risky chemicals needed!
