This newly released Dao Vua series is hand forged from 52100 carbon steel imported from the USA. With some models now offering a spine thicker than their classic series, it is an amazing choice for anyone looking to make a step forward into the world of Japanese Carbon Steel knives, but are skeptical about the care level on a knife that could break the bank. With a slight added weight due to the thicker spine, this series remains affordable and is a great addition for any Dao Vua collector.

With an optional fitted wooden saya, the 100% handmade 52100 series features a finish that must be appreciated by its owner - while they show their true handmade characters and each knife is slightly different, up to including various handle wood shadings, they are considered an ideal platform for anyone looking to experiment sharpening, thinning or even polishing carbon steel.

Nakiri knives are highly known for their long and flat blade. They tend to be fabricated with a higher heel compared to other models and are extremely popular for chopping vegetables. They are the ideal candidate for cutting long veggies in a single chop, but also great for a push or pull cut into harder vegetables. The square shape allows you to easily grip your fingers around the handle with no fear of busting your knuckles when chopping your vegetables.
