Dao Vua Hand Forged Knives
Dao Vua are a multi-generation Vietnamese blacksmith family with a history dating back to 1288. Based in Hanoi, a handful of bladesmiths hand-forge simple, but beautiful knives of various styles. These knives are building a reputation around the world due to the traditional methods used to forge the knives and the excellent quality of the blades themselves. The blades are made from old automotive (in some cases military) leaf springs which, are usually made from 5160 carbon steel. This steel is highly regarded in the industry and many leading blacksmiths use leaf springs for their custom blades.
