This is the new and improved version 2 series, following Dao Vua's popular classic series. Made from mono Carbon Steel, they are ideal 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 high performing but reactive blade that requires care, they are known as the best-selling knives under 100$ and often compared to steel performance of White #2, the V2 series is a no-brainer.

Being 100% handmade from a mono steel blade that case easily rust if not cared for, the Classic V2 series features a finish that must be appreciated by its owner - while they show their true handmade characters and each knife is slightly different, they are considered an ideal platform for anyone looking to experiment sharpening, thinning or even polishing carbon steel.

Highly performant due to its high carbon content, this fillet knife is recommended for indoor use to minimize rust development when left outside or in humid environments (boat). Most often used with fish and other soft meats, as the thinness of the blade allows you to easily manoeuvre between the layers of the meat. A fillet knife can either be stiff, or flexible to be curved, all depending on your cutting style and preference - in this case, the Dao Vua model is semi-flexible to offer a good balance. The pointed, sharp blade tip assists with piercing, allowing you to get to any bones with ease.

With all products in stock, we take the opportunity to ensure that your new knives are fully inspected, hand-sharpened and sharp tested on a Professional BESS Certified Sharpness Tester.

This guarantees that your knives are ready to work right out the box.
