Rust - rust as a danger for your metal-tools and swords

What do you think, if we would have the problem of rust for metaltools and swords?

Wetness should be da danger for swords and tools, durability decreases in rain, fog, snow, swimming => Durability will go down.

With Maintenance oil (good against Rust), and sharpening (we also need whetstones) increases the lifespan and sharpness of tools and swords.

Caring by oiling and sharpening could also be a nice homework or night work.

Edit: the same danger for the Armor - if there are parts from metal ...

yes, I own at home also a carbon-steel knife, its very very sharp, but the negative aspect, it get fast rust by water and acid. The only two pros are the sharpnes of this knife and grinding is also bit more easy.

And water becomes even more dangerous if it is salty water (if one day we have oceans) or acid water, some caves ore lakes could have acid or salty water too :)

Also IRL, wrought iron has some innate corrosion resistance thanks to the somewhat high silicon content produced during the bloomery process (or the "finery" process which is not in the game). Bronze also has some corrosion resistance and brass even more so and these would be (and still are) used at sea with some polish. Steel and pure copper can form a resistant corrosion layer (typically a green layer for copper and rust for steel) but this is terrible for edges (use oil). Cast Iron would be corrosion resistant but this is not in the game nor is it suitable for most tools/weapons/armor due to its brittleness.

The other problem is that the game cannot differentiate salt and fresh water. There is only "water".

Thank you for getting through my "actually" comment.
