Dao Vua is a Vietnamese brand that recently started very good reputation for their quality / price ratio. Handmade knives made by the family and community members and the ideal choice for beginners in the handmade knives world. They are exporting 50% of their production in USA where they started becoming a favorite for the ones that want a handmade knife without “breaking the bank”.

The V-3 Series is made from 52100 carbon steel, fully by hand, at a HRC61 hardness. It features a Nashiji / Hammered finish and an ergonomic Ebony and Rosewood wooden handle.

The Kiri cleaver is a special shape that is starting getting more and more popular. It’s like a Chinese cleaver but with a different shaped nose (in the style of Kiritsuke) and with a more curved belly. Suitable mainly for vegetable cutting but can be used on all ingredients and provide also more precise cuts from the Chinese cleaver with its more pointy nose.

This 180 Kiri cleaver features a rustic look and a handmade handle and will be not only esthetically pleasing but a real cutting machine in your kitchen always at an affordable price!

Important Note: Dao Vua knives are fully hand forged and therefore can have imperfections in finishing or straightness. They are delivered without a box (but very well protected) and extra sharpening service is strongly suggested as their sharpness out of the box can be drastically improved.

Handles come in different colors and may vary from the one you see in the picture. If you want to be sure of the handle color kindly contact us by email or messenger.

Important Note: This is a Carbon Steel knife and not a stainless one. Requires attention and care in its maintenance like quick washing and drying after use, storing in low humidity area and application of mineral oil if not used for some time.

Over time it will form a patina that will protect it from rust. In case rust appears, use baking soda on wet blade, leave it for 10 mins and rub carefully with your finger or a soft sponge. In case rust is not removed, contact us for further instructions.
