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 blacksmith’s willingness to listen and learn, their quality has improved immensely.

The kurouchi finish is now very smooth and long-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 petty 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 then you'll love it.

      Great blade

    It seemed odd to me that a petty knife is this long; I use it to slice cooked meats before playing. Glides through short ribs, chicken breast, and pork tenderloin like butter. So I use it more like a short sujihiki.

    Easy to keep razor sharp. A few passes on my Cerax 1000 and denim strop and it’s good to go. So you Dao Vua haters should perhaps take note; these are great blades that can withstand the rigors of a busy kitchen.
