We donít know if itís the price, the back story, or the actual knife, but these Daovua knives are flying off the shelves as soon as we receive them. We started working with this fledgling Vietnamese company less than a year ago. Back then their first offerings were best described as project knives! But with our input and the blacksmithís willingness to listen and learn, their quality has improved immensely.

The kurouchi finish is now very smooth and longer lasting. The grinding is far more sophisticated. And the handle is a vast improvement over the originals. These are now very acceptable knives with surprisingly good edge geometry. We are still amazed at how they take an edge after sharpening.

As the name suggests, the blades are made from old automotive leaf springs which, themselves, are usually made from 5160 carbon steel. This steel is highly regarded in the knife industry and many leading blacksmiths use leaf springs for their custom blades.

This is the Naht family's first attempt at a gyuto and we are extremely pleased with the cutting performance. The heat treatment is also of a very respectable quality. Out of the box or with a quick trip to your stones, this knife will cut!

So if you are looking to enter the world of carbon steel knives or you want to get into sharpening, we highly recommend this fun and functional knife. Our customers are certainly responding very favorably for all the right reasons! Please remember these are made under crude conditions with used steel so you should expect that they're rough and have imperfections that exceed most of our other knives. Expect dents, scratches odd sizes, different handles etc. If you're into great fit and finish or are overly particular run away! If you want to try a cool piece of living history and you're not uptight about a crude but cool cutting tool than you'll love it.

      Fun intro knife to carbon steels , November 3, 2021
    Posted By: Robert Yount

    I read about the independent maker in Vietnam and learned that these are good, solid quality, but rough around the edges. They are exactly that! It feels great in the hand; it is heavier duty than other Gyutos, and it's a great blade for learning how to sharpen your knives at home. Out of the box was fine, but it sharpens up real nice.

      Solid even in the little things, March 18, 2021
    Posted By: Matt Freeman

    I'll vouch for all the other complimentsrustic good looks, great performance, sharpens to a screaming edgeand add that maybe they're improving but I noticed the choil has clearly been smoothed. Not sure who did that but for the money either I've been lucky or you get a higher level of fit and finish than this maker's reputation would suggest.

    I value these knives more and more as time goes on. My new gout is ruggedly attractive with that famous handmade rustic look, paper-cutting sharp out of the box, easy to sharpen further, with the nicest handle I've seen yet. One not-exactly minor thing that's much appreciated: They seem to take care to seal those handles, which isn't guaranteed even on wa-handled knives costing far more. So while they might not be priceless collector's items, they're knives you can confidently grab and cut food with, wash, dry, and put away, and still enjoy as a unique handcrafted blade.

    This is a very nice looking knife. Sharpens well. Be sure to dry completely or the knife rusts almost instantly.

    A budget knife that performs well. Just run the knife on stones to get it's full potential it sharpens real easy. Recycled leaf spring steel is also a good thing.

      Great Knife, Great Price, December 9, 2020
    Posted By: Joe - verified customer

    I was really surprised with this knife. There was a small crack in the handle, but it was very minuscule. Knife took on a great edge after a few minutes on the stone.
    The part I was really surprised about is it holds an edge better than expected, and not as reactive as I thought. Cut onions a few times with it, wiping it off in between but very little reaction with the carbon.
    Best knife value for the price.
