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.

Gyutos are known as the only knife needed in the kitchen. The blades typically range from 210mm to 270mm in length and are appreciated for their taller heel. Gyuto’s are a great option for most as they have a reasonably flat profile toward the heel for chopping, a belly toward the tip of the blade for rock cutting, and a pointed tip for precision work. which is why many chefs prefer a Gyuto over many other models.

While often similar in shape when compared to Western chef knives, Japanese Gyuto’s have a reputation for being lighter and thinner.
