Dao Vua V3 52100 Kiritsuke 240mm

For those exploring beyond Japanese-made kitchen knives, Dao Vua is a name you'll likely encounter. Originating from Hanoi, Vietnam, Dao Vua knives are handcrafted by Vietnamese bladesmiths using high-quality materials. Known for their impressive build and sharpness at an accessible price point, these knives are an excellent choice. However, they require careful maintenance due to their carbon steel composition, which, despite a kurouchi finish, is prone to oxidation.

The latest update in their series, the "V3", introduces 52100 carbon steel sourced from the US to enhance the consistency of these blades. Each iteration seems to respond directly to user feedback. What more would you like from this innovative Vietnamese knife brand?

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!
