    How do you apply wax on the blade tho? Just rub it or you use different method?

    Yes, you can just rub it on the blade, but you can have better results heating the blade with an hair dryer until the paraffin melts on contact, cover the whole blade with a thin film let it cool off, then remove the excess and buff it with a cloth until it feels smooth. And you're good to go.
