- Amazing product with Heaven scent Review by Cliff
I have been restoring furniture, tools and firearms for several years and have tried untold amounts of over the counter products, home brewed concoctions, some with good results and others with complete failure. Some of the products either purchased or concocted were noxious and required the use of gloves and/or a mask and could not be used for prolonged use indoors.
Upon opening the Alfie Shine tin I smelled a very pleasant slight fragrance coming from the product so I turned the can upside down to read the ingredients.
The ingredients are all natural products and uses Frankincense and Myrrh for the scent.
The color of the wax is a creamy “golden” color infused with “Frankincense and Myrrh”, so it’s safe to use and “heavenly” scent.
Sorry I couldn’t resist that.
I decided to use the Alfie Shine on an old wooden hand plane that I am restoring and while using the wax I noticed that the fragrance grew and was very pleasing, not overpowering at all.
Before waxing I the plane I took it apart gave it a thorough cleaning and thought that I had done a very sufficient job but while applying the wax it pulled out grit and grime that I had not seen, all the while leaving the patina on both the wood and metal.
After I had waxed all the parts I took a clean cloth and buffed the surfaces and it produced a beautiful sheen while bringing out all of the natural details of the wood that had been hidden for years. It brightened the metal parts as well and created a nice contrast to the heavy patina areas.
I was so pleased with the results I started pulling out several different types of old tools to see how it work work on them and before long I had 10 beautifully cleaned, waxed and rust protected antiques that looked like they had been meticulously kept for years.
So all in all this Alfie Shine is the “gift of the magi”. What? Too soon??
Sorry again but I really, really couldn’t help myself.
By the way, I’m not sure if you sell it this way, but I will be needing a case soon. (Posted on 01/01/2017)

- Easily the most favorite wax I've ever used Review by Adamo
I've cleaned and restored hundreds of hand planes over the last 6 years and Alfieshine was a small revelation. And dang does it smell good! If they added some Sandlewood I would wear it as a cologne, truly.
After a quick application, aided by some 0000 steel wool and buffing with a paper towel ( don't ask me why, but a folded paper towel, will buff and polish wax better than any cheap shop supply I have found) the results were immediate and profound. The medullary rays of the antique Beech wood really, really 'popped'. The surfaces feel lustrous and have a hard, smooth waxy feel that doesn't get all over your skin.
This wax is supposed to get better and better with repeated applications over time and I can't wait! I got a lot of hand planes to restore still & you guys better to release it in a larger size soon. (Posted on 19/12/2016)
