I did not like the look of boiled linseed oil on maple. Haven't tried tung oil. Danish looks good, but something that doesn't darken is my preference for maple. I think poly might suit well there. I have heard it suggested that poly is not well suited for a workbench top, for reasons of functionality. (Chipping, etc…)

The chops for vises don't get too much action from knives, irons and such.

I wouldn't use anything, especially not a film finish. Over time it will flake off with the heavy use. If you have to use something, an oil type (BLO, or BLO and beeswax) won't peel, be easier to repair, and glue will pop right off.
