Will they rust? Do I need to coat them with a rust inhibitor? Is the ferrule steel or alloy?

I've left blood on one for a few days and it washed right off.:)

I think the ferrule is some alloy, but will default to Duggaboy or Vpier for the real answer.

No it wont rust.

Ferrule Material:
"AlZnMgCu1,5 F53 Internationally better known under the ASTM designation 7075 T6

This high-strength aluminum alloy contains a tensile strength of 540 N/mm² which is approx. 1.5 times stronger than average construction steel and is used in many cases, where high-strength, but light materials are needed.
Aircraft engineers as well as the top technical designers of world class racing bicycles, appreciate the advantages derived from this material."
