Best finish for pens

MA
>Hello,
I've ventured into pens, magnifying glasses, needlecase holders and having a great time! I'm using Mylands friction wax as a finish. The finish seems to wear off fairly quickly [week or two of normal use]. Is that normal? I put on about 8 coats and I do make sure I heat it up well when finishing [got a few blisters on my fingers - Mouse pad padding finally fixed that!]. I heard CA is a good finish but have no clue as to how to apply that. Any suggestions? Thanks. MA
