What's that stuff?

Anyone know what that stuff id that better antique shops put on antique metal tools to give them that nice sheen? I bought a Stanley #122 Liberty Bell plane yesterday and would like to shine it up for a mantle piece.

Renaissance Wax. Expensive to buy a pot, but it lasts for ages. Use a short stif brush to apply it - a cheap stencilling brush is perfect. It works equally well on wood or metal, and it's non-damaging if you want to use the tool aferwards.
