So, I bought these Gedore screwdrivers and they are getting a little rusty where there is no vanadium coating. Is it normal? What can I do to prevent this? They are stored in my drawer and they had no contact with water at all.
Thanks in advance!

Motor oil or grease will prevent rust on tools

yep it's a good idea to give tools a light coating of grease or oil

The moisture in the air car be enough to rust tools. A coat of some kind of oil will do as other anons already said. Or you could just clean the rust off with light steel wool whenever it occurs.

Thank you, guys. I was wondering why don't they coat the entire screwdriver with vanadium?
I have these pliers and they are all coated with Vanadium.

Man, those are beautiful.

I've never seen a single Gedore tool in-person other than a handful of those junk made in India Gedore wrenches.

Vanadium isn't a coating to prevent rust, its in the metal of the tool. Its part of the alloy and is there to add strength to the steel. The 'coating' is chrome. The reason they don't chrome the tips is because use will damage the coating and it will flake off.

If you actually used them, they wouldn't fucking rust.

Since you don't use your tools, put some oil on a rag and rub everything down that isn't plated.

Buy Wihas next time.
