one quick question (to anyone) – - – how do you think the French/Friction polish will stand up over time
under normal use compared to several coats of a good varnish or polyurethane on tool handles

- John Smith

I used it for a few years and found it to be fine for things that you don’t touch, but you’ll lose the gloss quickly by handling. Even if you don’t handle it, the gloss will fade. If you don’t care about gloss, it’s fine. I don’t use it anymore. I now use straight shellac or waterbase finishes, and buff it. I find it to be more durable.
