Alfie Shine

Alfie Shine is a gorgeous blend of the finest waxes, oils and exotic resins, researched and developed by Jim Hendricks for use on his extensive collection of rare and valuable woodworking hand tools.


Many of the commercial polishes available today are soft paste waxes or creams which are bulked out with cheap solvents to increase their volume. Alfie Shine uses only 100% natural ingredients and contains no solvents whatsoever.


Beginning as a personal research project and based on a 17th century finishing preparation, it continues to be made by hand in small batches, faithfully following Jim’s original recipe.
