As the saying goes, great oaks from little acorns grow. While not quite a great oak, the Daovua knife company has grown—from a fledgling enterprise located in Vietnam making knife and tool blades out of old car parts, to a thriving business that has spread into making some really great kitchen utensils at super attractive prices.

Their blades are fashioned from recycled leaf springs taken from old cars and trucks. This is not as bizarre as it sounds as many top flight blacksmiths dip into this widely available source to make their highly prized blades. But unlike these fancy and often expensive works of art, the Nhat family makes more down to earth creations that are more function than form.

This knife is a classic nakiri in terms of shape and profile but with a much taller stance. It is almost a cross between a cleaver and nakiri except for the fact that it is very thin and made to cut vegetables of all kinds with ease. One outstanding attribute of these blades is how they take an incredibly sharp edge.

So for someone seeking a unique version of a nakiri, the Daovua Tall Nakiri is a perfect and high value choice. Please remember these are made under fairly rough conditions with recycled steel, so you should expect that they will have imperfections that you will not see in our other knives. But this should not dissuade anyone looking for a low priced kitchen knife that is exceedingly sharp and rather unique.

    I really like this blade, it's great for a lot of things. I wasn't sure I'd like it as much as I did but I have been very happy with it.

    5  Fantastic nakiri for large hands, August 16, 2019
    Posted By: StiffArm

    If you have bear paws instead of human hands then this is the knife for you. But seriously this is a fantastic knife for the money. I've only used mine for a few weeks but I just love it. Yes the edge OOTB could be better but a few minutes on the stones and you're razor sharp. F&F is just fine when considering the price-point. There is something about this knife that just exudes soul. This is no beauty queen but she'll chop any veggie that gets in your way. Great knuckle clearance for big handed people, especially if you favor a pinch grip. I really like this knife and absolutely plan to buy more from Daovua--great value and I love the re-purposed leaf spring angle.

    Just got my Daovua Tall Nakiri in the mail today and I think it's an exceptional knife. I'm gonna put my own edge on it but I noticed that the bevel on this blade is geared more towards lefty's and that's great because I'm left handed. I like the length, I like the flaws in the blade and the rustic charm. I like this knife better than my CCK Lil' Rhino. Going to buy the Kiritsuke next.

    Others may disagree, but this is the perfect "Chinese cleaver" for me. EXCELLENT for any vegetable chopping, as spring steel as great impact resistance & toughness, coupled with an ability to take a very keen edge. After chopping up an entire (large)family size stir fry on the board. It was still sharp enough to slice paper thin pieces of roast pork to put on top. I was a bit apprehensive about the pronounced heal, but it actually helps with chopping. I would definitely recommend this knife, it performs well above it's price.

    5  I like knives with good knuckle clearance , June 9, 2019
    Posted By: Tom Dickinson

    I am a chef with big hands and I have to have to a knife that has good knuckle clearance and a tall Nakiri is perfect. I will definitely be purchasing this knife. Also, my Dad is a lifetime career mechanic and he even has told me that leaf springs are made from top quality metal and the fact that Daovua uses them in the fabrication of their knives is outstanding.
