They should be stainless so just use wet and dry if you spot any nicks.
The Italian ones come with plastic protectors.

have you done much skikkui?ive never tried it big used trowel and nice to use.
No mate just starting out with venetian.
I was asked a few months ago if I did it, by a top end bathroom supplier and it got me thinking...nice extra string to the bow if I can eventually master it.

Japanese trowel came as part of a kit along with 4 Pavans of different grades.

The rectangular one on the right is stainless. The angled jap trowel you have can be oiled with anything. Easy option is wd40. By anything I mean any regular general purpose oil. Don't go using sunflower oil from the supermarket. Although it would probably work just as well
