Daovua Pipeline Steel Tall Nakiri
. 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 pipeline steel from the oil and gas business. The Nhat family cuts the pipes apart and hammer forges knives out of them and the results are what you see here.
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.
