Dao Vua V3 52100 Chinese Cleaver 210mm

For those that venture outside of Japanese-made kitchen knives, a few minutes scouring the internet will lead you to the remarkable brand Dao Vua. Known for their handmade knives, Dao Vua has quickly taken the internet and market by storm.

Dao Vua knives are handcrafted in Hanoi, Vietnam by skilled Vietnamese bladesmiths. These artisans repurpose recycled materials, namely leaf spring steel, to forge the blades. Dao Vua's knives stand out for their exceptional construction and sharpness. However, they are high-maintenance due to their carbon steel construction, which oxidizes easily and needs to be kept dry.

Addressing customer concerns about the consistency of recycled materials, Dao Vua's third iteration, "V3", introduces premium 52100 carbon steel sourced from the US. Dao Vua is an exciting Vietnamese knife company that consistently meets user demands and expectations.

The V3 Chinese Cleaver is not your typical meat cleaver. Designed as a vegetable knife, or "caidao", this blade boasts a forward-heavy design and a relatively thick spine, making it perfect for chopping even the largest cabbages. Its 210mm blade length and 94mm blade height make it a highly versatile kitchen tool.

Favorite cleaver

Perfect project cleaver. I’m loving the steel, was looking for something with a little more edge retention then my ck and flatter then my sugi. This fits the bill perfectly, definitely keeps that biting edge longer. The steel is super tough too! I accidentally gave my tongs a good whack and to my surprise there was almost no edge deformation! Literally LESS then a hairs width of micro chipping, and that was after ruining out the edge a good bit! Favorite cleaver so far
