Oil from the seeds of Camellia oleifera (same family as Camellia and tea) is the traditional Japanese choice for protecting tools from rust: use it when cleaning, and as a regular protective coating. Leaves a lovely deep, non-oily finish, and it's odourless and tasteless (handy for kitchen knives, but don't try drinking it.)
Niwaki Tip: The real trick with caring for your tools is to do it - it doesn't really matter exactly what, just get on with it.
