DAO VUA V3 52100 Bunka 165mm with Wa Handle

Description:

Among those who explore beyond Japanese-made kitchen knives, the brand Dao Vua is often a name encountered on the internet. Originating from Hanoi, Vietnam, Dao Vua knives are impressively handcrafted by barefoot Vietnamese bladesmiths, using what they term as leaf spring steel, essentially recycled materials. Despite their humble and sustainable production process, these knives stand out due to their high build quality and sharpness, offered at a very affordable price point. However, they require careful maintenance, as being carbon steel with a kurouchi finish, they oxidize easily.

Dao Vua has introduced its third iteration "V3", to address concerns regarding the consistency of their final products, made from recycled materials. The V3 line now sources 52100 carbon steel from the US, ensuring the uniformity and quality of the finished product. A Bunka knife can be seen as a flatter bellied santoku with a k-tip (reverse tanto), useful for precision cuts and push/pull cutting over rock chopping. At 165mm, it's a versatile and comfortable size for most hands.
