For those that venture outside of Japanese-made kitchen knives, you need only scour the internet for a few minutes before you eventually come across the brand Dao Vua. Who are they and why have they taken the internet and market by storm? The story of Dao Vua and their kitchen knife price point is really where it begins.

Here is the short and dirty version of their humble beginnings, which you can easily find online. Dao Vua knives are handmade in Hanoi, Vietnam by barefoot Vietnamese bladesmiths, using recycled materials, from what they call leaf spring steel. At the price point of these knives, they are seriously impressive from build to sharpness. Though, they may not be for you if you struggle to take care of your knives. Being carbon steel even if with a kurouchi finish, they sharpen easily, but also oxidize easily so care should be taken to maintain a dry knife.

One of the main reasons you see and hear a lot about Dao Vua, is because not only do you get a good looking knife with a cool story attached to it at a reasonable price, despite being a start up of sorts, they have listened to their customers and adapted.

Enter Version 2 Dao Vua knives, also simply known as V2. In the V2 line, Dao Vua has been careful to include better crafted handles, thinner and sharper blades, refined the knife style to more generally look like a Japanese kitchen knife and fewer inconsistencies in build fit and finish. If you are looking to pick up your first Dao Vua, we highly recommend you pick up a V2 over a V1 so that you can see and feel the difference.

A 210mm gyuto is by far one of our most popular knife styles and length. Whether you are a home cook or a busy on the line professional chef, there's just something about 210mm that fits the sweet spot for most. Kind of like having a shoe that's half a size larger so when you decide to put on a warmer pair of socks, the shoe still fits seamlessly. To tie it back to knives, what we mean is, 210mm is a very versatile length which belongs in any kitchen!

Great gift

This was my second dao vua knife. I ordered it on a whim as a gift for someone and got to try it a few times. Great edge! The quality/cost ratio is excellent on these knives, and the brand seems focused on continually improving also. If you’re considering a first carbon knife to try or want to show off a little without shelling out big bucks, this is a great choice. You could also use it to practice sharpening.

On par with Walmart knife

There were a lot of problems with this knife. The blade came slightly warped. I was able to bend the blade so it was straight, but unable to fix the twist in the blade, so the edge is still not aligned with the spine of the knife. The edge came adequately sharp, but the edge profile was ground poorly. This made the knife feel like a wedge, and when making cross cuts on an onion it pushes out the layers. The knife also turned the onion brown, even after being cleaned and oiled. The dark coating on the upper half of the blade came off when scrubbed with some steel polish, so I used a brillo pad and bartenders friend to get most of it off. I wouldn't trust the coating not to start coming off in your food over time. The handle is coated in some sort of varnish, which had already started peeling on the butt end when I took it out of the package. If you're ok with the possibility of receiving a knife project, it could have some potential but I'm not sure if the $60-80 is worth the gamble.
