What are those oval indentations in some knife blades?

Referred to as “Kullenschliff”, “Hollow-Edge” or a “Granton edge,” the indentations along the blade help to prevent food from sticking to the blade by creating air pockets between the blade and the food, as well as reducing friction while slicing. They are placed just above the edge of the knife, and do not affect the edge itself.
