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.

    The knife came to me in good condition. I was a little worried about the way they were wrapped, since it wasn't in a box, I worried for a moment, but thank goodness it worked out. Thank you for everything

    Gave away a gyuto to a friend, so needed to replace with something not too expensive. Took a chance on this and wow, what a great knife! Super sharp out of the box. And seems to be very durable. Thanks leafsprings!

    4  Very unique knife for a great price, February 26, 2020
    Posted By: E Graham - verified customer

    This is a really nice knife with a lot of character. The bevel of my knife seems to be a little uneven, but it still comes to razor sharp with a little effort on the stone! Not overly reactive, cutting a few onions puts a nice patina on the blade and Iíve had no rust. No obvious defects but as expected itís a little rough around the edges and without some sanding this knife might hurt your hands if youíre using it for hours. Regardless, I love this thing

    Posted By: Jonathan B. - verified customer

    Amazed that such a beautiful product can be this affordable. Great knife to build up to a real performer; fantastic results with a little love to the edge. Handle is unique, and finish on blade is relatively easy to take care of. Great buy.

    Just got this and the Kiri cleaver. Very pleased with this knife. Beautiful rustic look, great feel. The balance point was exactly where my pinch grip is. Came pretty sharp, but ran it through my stones and became extremely sharp! Absolutely stunning handle as well. Will be ordering more from the Barefoot Blacksmith. Love his story!

    5  Outstanding knife and an amazing value , December 27, 2019
    Posted By: Ej Aponte

    This knife is my new work horse. The knife definitely needs to be touched up with a whetstone out of the box but once itís sharp this thing is a BEAST!!! And maintains its edge very well Iíve used this all day prepping ( 150 Lbs brisket, 40 lbs of onions and it goes through daikon like nobodyís business.

    5  Totally different from any other knife Iíve used, December 5, 2019
    Posted By: Wim - verified customer

    These knives create an incredible feeling of connection with the maker ó certainly miles apart from mass produced ( but good) knives, and different even from top notch, but more highly finished, Japanese knives. A woodworker friend utilizes imperfect wood with knots and voids to make highly crafted and finished furniture, calling it ďcharacter wood.Ē This guyto has ďcharacterĒ ...along with taking and holding a fine edge and being comfortable in the hand. A ďcharacter knifeĒ in the best sense...thatís also a delight to use.

    Bought this knife almost a yr ago, the fit and finish was a little rough. After a bit of sand papering and 15 mins on my stones... was very happy w the kinife. Has become my daily user ( prof. Cook) the edge retention on this knife makes my co workers jealous. Looking at getting a diff style from this brand and have seen some questionable reviews about edge retention... either they got an off knife, or they dot know how to take care of a knife. I use mine everyday, and havenít took it to the stones in over a month. With a little honing it cuts paper without issue... better edge retention than a shun at 1/3 the price ... IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOURE DOING

    Received this knife in just a few days after ordering. This is the DaoVua 8" gyuto. Wa handle is beauty, albeit a bit small for my big hand. The blade looks a little...rustic, but therein lies its beauty. Edge took just a small amount of work. I'd buy it again.

    Posted By: Jacques Bernier - verified customer

    I'm new in the world of sharpening on whetstone. Own some good blade (Moritaka, Sakai). Decided to try this one to practice my skill. Love the back story of the knife (handmade from reclaimed auto parts).

    Overall very good product. For the price excellent deal.

    No surprise or problems with canadian delivery ! :)

    Solid performer. Sharp out of the box.
    Far more attractive than expected. Feels a little more solid than some gyutoís.

    Nice price, too!

    Posted By: Arnold - verified customer

    Beautiful hand made knife. Well described by chef knives to go, not perfect but you can see it was made by a real person which I really like. Only reason I'm not giving it five stars is my handle is cracked in two spots. Overall I cant wait to hit the stones and really see what this knife can do.

    Posted By: Tom - verified customer

    Lighter than expected but cuts great and I like it. The big issue Iím running into is that even with cleaning and drying after use, the blade is getting rusty so thatís a big negative.

    The finish was a bit rough in places on both the blade and handle , and the only reason I couldnít give this knife 5 stars. Otherwise, it is an extremely sharp and capable knife (finished well by CKTG as always). For the price and functionality of this knife, you canít go wrong.

    I bought this and the clever and I was sent a santoku instead. Well, I called and talked to a woman named Susan and she was super awesome! She not only replaced my knife but sent some goodies to help organize my workstation! Also, that sharpened it up too! All in all, I'm really surprised at the rustic robust quality of this knife. A must-have for carbon steel lovers.
