At a party you’ll find Oliver in a corner, browsing Insta for the latest tips on sharpening knives. There’s a sharp knife and then there’s a SHARP knife. He will spend hours perfecting the art of grinding, sharpening, polishing his collection of knives and his girlfriend will learn to accept she comes close second to his need for perfection. When they went to spend their vacation in the family beach house last summer she brought along a bunch of books to read on the beach and he… well, he took his favorite whetstones and sharpened all the knives in the kitchen. Good thing that he gives the best hugs and makes her laugh.

Buy the loved one with a perfectionist streak and OCD tendencies the proper tools. You know they’ll take care of those hard-to-maintain knives. And they’ll love doing it.
