New Handle design as of 7/4/2021.

The shape and size of a classic kiritsuke result in a knife with a dual personality. It can be used like a usuba for the cutting of vegetables or as a yanagiba to slice raw fish. However, this is a western style kiritsuke knife, so it is ground on both sides of the blade for ease of use and maintenance. Knives like this are sometimes referred to as a kiritsuke gyuto. This design is easier to use and sharpen than the traditional single bevel kiritsuke. It also allows for an ambidextrous personality to the knife.

The Daovua interpretation of this style blade has a more pronounced belly than most other kiris, making it a good choice for both push- and-pull-cutting and rocking techniques. However the extended edge length also makes it a very workable slicer.

We believe these knives are perfect for new users, projects, budding sharpeners, or anyone looking for a really well priced cutter that has personality and uniqueness in spades. Watch the video below to see how they're made. 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. All measurements are approximations.

  • Weight: 6.9 oz/ 196g

  • Overall Length: 380 mm
  • Spine Thickness at Heel: 2.5 mm
  • Blade Height at Heel: 58.8 mm

    Heck of a knife for the price. Little fit-and-finish imperfections but nothing that impedes performance. It looks great and performs better.

      Kiri-Gyuto hybrid?, December 30, 2020
    Posted By: Colin Meddings - verified customer

    I love these Daovua knives, not just for the beautifully rustic finish on the blades and the lower profile handles, but also just the blade shapes! This kiritsuke has a belly on it that makes it feel more like a gyuto. Probably not my first, second, or third choice for a slicer, but it handled some mild butchery just fine. Only points docked for the edge ootb, still recommend.

    Tip bent on the first day and the shape is a touch odd but it's sharp and had good weight and motion

    Just a quick touch up on a polishing stone and this knife gets laser sharp, and is comfortable to use even for long periods of time. It has a very unique feel and is really fun to cut with, plus it has a cool story. Will be purchasing more from this line. (I have the nakiri and kiritsuke.)

      2nd Daovua , February 21, 2020
    Posted By: Steven - verified customer

    Over 1 yr ago I got my first Daovua , after doing a lot of research on various metals and different knife brands. For the last 9 months this is my go to knife. Have been so happy w the knife I decided to get another, slightly larger. I want to emphasize this knife was not NEEDED, but wanted. You other knife nuts know what I'm talking about. Put a nice sharp edge on it earlier this week. Haven't used it a lot, but so far I'm quite happy with it. Would highly recommend this knife... if you don't have one yet, you don't know what you're missing

      It's alright, December 12, 2019
    Posted By: Santiago - verified customer

    The knife overall is ok. The edge was pretty dull and was good once sharpened. It's incredibly reactive and I wouldn't recommend using it on anything too acidic. Although cheap and beautiful but I would not recommend to a beginner.

      Great knife for the price , October 6, 2019

    I have purchased three Dao Vua knives and I love all three of them. this one is not exception. It's a good quality knife, looks beautiful, is super sharp, and I personally like all the perfect imperfections of this blade. It makes every single knife unique to the person who is purchasing it. Great knife.

      Great knife for the price, June 27, 2019
    Posted By: Jeff Hubbard - verified customer

    Really great knife for the price. Nice piece of steal that is over all well made. Surprisingly nibble feel and very comfortable in my hand. It is definitely rustic with a few flaws which I don't mind, and has actually been fun touching up with a little sand paper and a little time on the stones making it more custom and razor sharp with the added bonus of not worrying about making a mistake on a super expensive knife. Cktg customer service was excellent as always, thank you.

      Very very pleased , June 17, 2019
    Posted By: Danny C

    I must say I am pleased and impressed by these knives. The price point is quite exceptional for what you get. This kiritsuke is stout and has in my opinion perfect weight for the size and profile.
    There is a lot of knuckle clearance and you can chop, push cut and rock with it.
    Let me preface by saying I got one of the first daovua nakiris in the sample batch that Mark listed months or a year back. That knife was thin, sharp, and rustic in a unique way. The handle definitely needed work, but now they have upgraded them.
    Overall very pleased, and looking forward to all the different daovua knife types to be released.

      Decent for the price, June 7, 2019
    Posted By: John - verified customer

    I bought it with no expectations as it was only $75. You get what you pay for with this. Fit and finish are better then expected. I personally like the raw finish of the knife. Handle is comfortable and blade design is great. My only issue is edge retention. It does get razor sharp, but it won't hold the edge for extended periods. For home use this is a great knife, but for restaurant work I would have another knife ready fo go or a steel handy. Overall it gets the job done.
