DAO VUA V3 Kurouchi 52100 TALL Gyuto 210mm
Among those who explore beyond Japanese-made kitchen knives, the brand Dao Vua is often a name encountered on 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 210mm gyuto is an extremely versatile length, making it a favorite among both home cooks and professional chefs. It fits in seamlessly in any kitchen, catering to a variety of culinary needs.

My husband loves the knives so far. They cut perfectly. Your customer service was wonderful and he will be ordering again in the future. Thanks for a great product and service!!
I have three no-name cheap knives. A clever, a santoku, and a Huusk utility knife. I decided to try the Dao Vua tall gyuto 210mm. I sharpened it, along with my cheap knives on my whetstones. The Dao Vua is, by far, the sharpest of the four total knives. I did, however, store them all on a strip, right above the coffee pot. The Dao Vua rusted a little bit. I simply bathed the blade in vinegar, and the rust scrubbed right off. The vinegar bath left a sweet patina on my blade! I store it in the same place, but with the oil I bought from Tokushu Knife, and there are no issues. I plan to buy a Dao Vua clever next, to replace the no-name one I have. Highly recommend Dao Vua!
What N upgrade from their previous knives. Very light knife. I like a bit heavier but no issues. Great height. Super sharp from the factory.
