Greetings lord Arthur,
I have not given you brand names as I hail from Lochac and I'm not sure if
the brands and names are the same. the following information is what you
should be looking for in a finish.
Tung oil is one of the better oils for sealing. I know a curator who uses a
combination of Danish oil (based on tung oil), neatsfoot and lanolin for
treating wood: not too sure of the proportions though. The wood will need
to be re-sealed from time to time.
Marine varnishes are designed for flexibility with increased UV protection.
The catch is that they are expensive but you will not have re-seal your bow
for at least 10 years. Apply two thin coats followed by a full-strength
Polyurethane varnishes should be avoided as they are designed for toughness
- the resulting film will be brittle.
I hope that this helps
