Upgraded Niji handle which ads color and a a little weight to the already improved V2 series of 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 highly performant 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, the Classic V2 series features a finish that must be appreciated by it's owner - while they show their the 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.
Sakimaru knives are easily differentiated due to their Katana like blade tip. Designed as a sword for tasks that require a long blade to slice thin, it's well known by sashimi enthusiasts. It had been popularized in America and now even used as a utility slicer for smoked salmon, ham and other meats.
