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 optionalfittedwooden saya, the 100% handmadeclassic 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.
Kiritsuke are known as a multipurpose traditional Japanese chef knife.

Several makers now produce double-bevel Kiritsukes, often called Kiritsuke Gyutos which are ideal for users who appreciate the striking aesthetics of the profile but need the added versatility and ease of sharpening of a double bevel grind.
Traditionally, these kniveswere onlyused by theExecutiveChefs as a symbol of status.
