Beware of Mr. Rust
Some people have a reputation for rusting everything that they hold. These people have unique body oil. I don't know if it contains metal salts, high moisture content, or low pH. If you have guests in your shop, be careful about letting them handle good steel or tools. You might be the first to discover that Uncle Bert is one of those guys with a corrosive touch.

If you have this unique body oil, consider wearing cotton gloves oiled with something like Breakfree CLP to keep your body oils off of tools. Breakfree CLP is a multipurpose teflon oil designed to clean, lubricate, and protect metal. Another approach is to wash your hands and give them a light rub with mineral oil before handling metal.

I thought that was pretty bizarre myself when I read it.

I'm not sure there are unique people in this regard. If you have valued firearms, it pays not to handle the metal with your bare hands without cleaning before putting them away, same reason, corrosion.
