Postal Wax is designed for high volume hand use, such as bags and securing bundles of mail. This postal wax is a traditional handmade wax, meaning its purpose is to create a tamper-evident closure which provided the authenticity of the sender, and will break if opened or tampered with.
It is a very smooth, high shine wax handmade in Scotland, which takes wonderfully crisp and detailed impressions.
I thought it was a box of smaller sticks but it was one big stick. Works well though. It's nice to have a breakable seal for hand delivered items. Shippabke wax doesn't break very well.
Very happy with the quality of the wax, the packaging and delivery. Thank you.
The wax works just as expected. I am very glad to own this antiquated breakable wax. Please bear in mind that after the seal has been created, the wax is very brittle and will most likely break during transit if being mailed through the postal system. For all mailings, use the flexible wax which is readily available on Amazon etc.. However, for letters being hand delivered, this wax makes a very archaic touch; having the receiver break the seal prior to opening the letter is a timeless bygone.
