Why are the iFixit screwdriver bits sticky?

I just received my iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit and the screwdriver bits have a sticky residue on them. Is this intended to have this sticky residue?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your question. The residue you are describing sounds like oil that is used when the screwdriver bits are created. This is normal and shouldn’t have any effect on the quality of the bits. If you experience any issues with your product, please reach out to our Customer Support team.

I hope this helps!
