I dont expect finger prints to be a problem though, as much as it's tempting to stroke the hardware from time to time, it doesnt like static, so I try to handle equipment as little as possible once it's installed.
Wear gloves when handling copper blocks. The natural oils in your fingerprints reacts with untreated copper, and leaves tarnish marks which are very hard to get off. I learned this the hard way with a copper Ninja HSF.

When we do copper flashings at work, everyone in the shop wears those stupid blue latex gloves.
