Humidity isn’t usually a problem where I live in California, but I still don’t risk it with expensive tools…. I use Jojoba oil on all my hand tools to prevent rust, that goes for steel rules, machine squares, chisels and block plane. Camelia oil is good too. I just got a bottle of Jojoba oil from Lie-Neilsen the last time I ordered a replacement plane blade. One bottle lasts a long time as a little goes a long way. Woodcraft and Highland Hardware sell Camelia oil. Just wipe down your tools with a light coating after each use and they should stay new looking.
