Dao Vua V3 52100 Kiritsuke 240mm

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. 

Once again with the third iteration to their knives "V3", Dao Vua has addressed another issue users have sometimes worried about. If the metal used is from recycled materials, how can consistency of the final product be assured? Enter sourcing 52100 carbon steel from the US with this V3 line. SO, sounds like every time a end product user has a demand it seems to be met. What else would you like to see from this exciting Vietnamese knife company?

Single handily the best knife for the price I’ve ever bought

So I’ve need needing a new chef knife but I’m always trying to budget stuff.
I wish I could drop 500 on a legit jap imported one but…
Ya boys a broke ass!
The knife on top of the box was around 65 bucks. From TOKUSHU KNIFE
The original manufacturer is DAO VUA
A Vietnam based team mixing Japanese forging style with their own culture.
Honestly I gotta say I’m extremely impressed.
This Kiritsuke is bad ass.
I did a forced patina after about 3 weeks with instant coffee and got extremely close to the look and protection I wanted.
The blade is great retains an edge and it’s super light weight which is weird at first but is a blessing.
It’s also worth noting that the edge angle is super fine and might take you a try or two to get that perfect angle again. I wound up bringing it up to about 20 ish for the bevel and then dropping it back down to the 8 or 12 mark.
As I said the blade is thin, you need to listen to the instructions that come with the knife. Obviously with a thinner blade you get extremely precise cuts but don’t go for bone etc etc.
Honeing wise for an average of my 12-14 hour days where I spend a total of 3 hours cook time and the remained food preping I’d hone maybe 4 times total depending on what I’m cutting.
I’m not supported by them but if any of y’all need a new knife for home or work it’s worth it.
I can’t even cover a 30 min bar tab with 65…
Or a Taco Bell order but anyway!
Thanks for coming to my Ted talks, Seacrest out!
