Default What happened to Trade Secret for Wood?

I purchased a few jars of TSW a couple years ago and see that Bill at AZ Silhouette no longer carries it. Is it discontinued? If so, what besides Ren Wax is out there that is similar to TSW?

I could be wrong, but several people have told me that the so called 'Secret' was that this was nothing more than glorified clear shoe polish and the reason it is less common is because people have figured it out.

NOPE!

I don't know of any shoe polish that has carnauba wax in it. Besides, if you read the old threads you will see it was supposed to be made from a car wax. Personally I could care less what it's made from, I know that it works and I use it on many of my pens. Perhaps you are thinking about the thread on Ren wax not too long ago?
