Anyone used this enough to know how well it works, how it compares to Johnson Paste Wax, etc.?

R/W is designed to be easy to apply and buff, on items that will not be handled.
JPW is for waxing wood floors.
Which do you think holds up better?
Yes, I have used both.

Renaissance Wax is a completely different formulation from floor wax.

I did an abusive salt water test on a number of products, including Renaissance Wax and found that it performs very well. However, it is expensive. While it's true that a little goes a long way, it didn't perform so much better than the other good performing products that I felt like it warranted the extra expense.

I will say that Renaissance Wax is the default preservative of museum Curators and I guess that counts for something, and it did perform well.

You can see my series of articles on corrosion testing here: http://cbd.atspace.com/articles.html

Peace favor your sword,

Paste wax holds up better on handled items-hence it has better protection on handled items.
