Dao Vua: The Vietnamese Craftsmanship Taking the World by Storm

For those venturing outside of Japanese-made kitchen knives, the brand Dao Vua is impossible to miss. Handmade in Hanoi, Vietnam, these knives have captured the attention of the internet and market alike. But what makes Dao Vua so special? It all starts with their humble beginnings and an impressive price point.

The Story of Dao Vua

Here's the short and dirty version of Dao Vua's origin story: Barefoot Vietnamese bladesmiths in Hanoi craft these knives using recycled materials, specifically leaf spring steel. The build quality and sharpness at this price point are seriously impressive. However, these carbon steel knives, even with a kurouchi finish, require careful maintenance to prevent oxidation. They sharpen easily but must be kept dry.

The Third Iteration: "V3"

With the third iteration of their knives, "V3," Dao Vua has addressed a concern about the consistency of the final product due to the use of recycled materials. By sourcing 52100 carbon steel from the USA for the V3 line, they've ensured quality and consistency. It seems that every demand from end-users is met by this exciting Vietnamese knife company.
