Renaissance Wax is a high performance protective wax used for the preservation of antiques, but does just as fine of a job on knives and tools. Developed for the British Museum, Ren. Wax dries quickly to a hard clear coating that protects surfaces from moisture and fingerprints. While it may seem expensive, a tiny dab goes an extremely long way. Absolutely unsurpassed for protecting your knives and tools when putting them away for extended storage. Works on leather as well! A shop favorite.
