With Oliver's signature performance first milled "C" grind, an absolute laser K-tip and a razor sharp precision ground 20/20 primary bevel, with a fine convex secondary bevel, this Oel Gyuto is going to make for a very high performance daily driver.
As is the case with all of German blacksmith Oliver Märtens work this knife feature some amazing industrial design and incredible style. The milled hollow geometry gives the blade an incredibly unique look, but other details like the brushed forge scale above the bevels, the tempering around neck and the satin stone polish on the secondary bevels make this an absolutely iconic kitchen tool.
Oliver has also been taking strides with his handle designs lately and this one is exceptional with a black canvas micarta frame and Fatcarbon "Dark Matter" scales the handle completes the knife is true style.

Sharpening: We advise using whetstones to sharpen your knives and a honing rod or steel to maintain the burr between sharpening sessions.
Reactive Steels: Reactive steels like Aogami Super, Apex Ultra or one of the many premium reactive German and Swedish steels are susceptible to rust if not properly cared for. In this case we advise that you keep the knife dry between uses and when storing the knife for longer periods wiping the knife blade with Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil is a wise choice. This will not stop a patina forming on the blade, but it will stop rust. A patina can be a beautiful personal feature on your knife and helps to stop rust forming. So, dry your knife regularly between uses, store in a dry place and apply some Tsubaki oil from time to time when storing for long periods.
A reference guide to steel types
Handle Care: If you have a knife with a non-stabilised wooden handle, you can apply Tsubaki oil or another food safe oil to your handle from time to time. Food safe wax can be applied to both stabilised and no-stabilised wooden handles. Never apply hot wax or oil as you risk warping or damaging the handle.
