Default Blade lubricant

Is it worth it to purchase blade lubricant for router bits. I was looking at Bostik BladeCote in Amazon. Just wondering if anyone has used it.

Theoretically it shouldn't make a difference since only the cutter is supposed to make contact with the wood. I do use the bearing lubricant and it does help keep the bearings turning freely. I've also used Waxilit lubricant on cast iron machine tops and it does reduce feed effort but it doesn't last for long.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
