Yes you should still keep the blade oiled. The patina helps prevent corrosion but it is not perfect and you can still stain the blade by leaving it dirty. You can use the blade for food prep, just make sure and keep a food safe oil on it. I suggest camellia oil.

If you are going to be doing any large quantity of food prep with it, I suggest leaving it alone and letting the patina develop naturally. The best patina's I've gotten on knives are from natural use. That being said, I work as a prep cook, so my volume of use is a bit more than the regular user.

Tsubaki oil is great as a leave-on. It's not crazy expensive but I still don't cleanse with it (unless I'm out of other stuff!) because I feel like it's more precious than mineral oil.

In Japan, tsubaki oil is used as knife cleaner (much the way mineral oil is used as a wooden board cleaner) so it's available very cheaply in that "format" and it's food-safe. Here's the one I buy on Amazon Prime. I'm sure you could find a better per oz price somewhere from a bulk supplier but I simply don't make enough stuff to need more than 8 oz of the tsubaki at a time. Since I don't use it for cleansing, I don't go through it very quickly!

This is how I prep my Kuroki stones:

Pour the stones into a large plastic bowl, add a mild dishwashing detergent and hot water. Stir the stones with your fingers thoroughly for a minute or so, then rinse until the water is clear. Drain, and spread the stones out on a towel to dry.

Again, wash as above, but stir more vigorously, gripping slightly to rub the stones against each other. Rinse and dry as above. Once dry, transfer in batches of ~30 to a 1 quart ziplock bag, add several drops of oil (my personal preference is for Camelia oil https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TPFVHC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ), and work the stones around until coated. Wipe the excess oil off with a cotton cloth, then spread out on paper towels let dry overnight. Check the stones in the morning - they should be an even matte black and not at all oily to the touch.

Cheers, and congrats on the new stones.
