Introducing: The handmade Vietnamese kitchen knife Rua Classic from the brand Heritedge Viet Crafts.

Rua is the Vietnamese word for turtle. The turtle has a special place in Vietnamese culture. It stands for wisdom and longevity and appears in many famous legends. Hoan Kiem Lake or Lake of the Resurrected Sword in the center of Hanoi is associated with a myth about King Le Loi, who received a sword from a magical turtle in the lake with which he was able to defeat his enemies.

The rectangular blade shape is typical for this Asian vegetable knife. The tip of the knife is slightly rounded to facilitate chopping and cutting vegetables. The knife is ideal for preparing carrots, cucumbers, cabbage and other vegetables.

Each of our knives is handmade by a traditional blacksmith's workshop in Cao Bang in northern Vietnam.

That's why this product is great:

  • Handmade Vietnamese kitchen knife Rua Classic
  • Traditional craftsmanship meets modern design
  • Made from high-quality, durable materials
  • Razor-sharp blade for precise cutting and chopping
  • Ergonomic handle for comfortable grip and control
  • Versatile use for various kitchen tasks
  • Enhances the authenticity of Vietnamese cuisine
  • Perfect for professional chefs and amateur cooks alike
Application & Notes

Since carbon steel blades are not rustproof, the knife should be washed by hand after each use and dried directly. After a few weeks of use, a natural, superficial discoloration forms on the blade, the patina. It protects the blade and gives it a unique character. If the knife is not used for a long time, we recommend rubbing the blade with a little vegetable oil.

Taiga Eco Rating

Sustainable materials
especially sustainable Material

This product scores in at least 50% of our sustainable materials characteristics, making it especially sustainable. Sustainability starts with the materials. That's why, when evaluating this criterion, we look closely at whether the product is made of natural or recycled or recyclable materials, and whether it is petroleum- or plastic-free. We also look to see if the materials are locally and organically grown.

Responsible production
especially sustainable Production

This product scores in at least 50% of our sustainable manufacturing characteristics, making it especially sustainable. Manufacturing is an essential step in the life cycle of a product. This includes whether a product is manufactured without animal testing or the use of critical substances such as genetically modified crops or palm oil. We also take a close look at whether it is produced locally and in a CO2-neutral manner. In addition, we check whether social sustainability, such as fair wages, is observed during production.

Sustainable packaging
especially sustainable Packing

This product scores in at least 50% of our sustainable packaging characteristics, making it especially sustainable. The packaging of a product has a major impact on the environment. Therefore, if the product has packaging, we carefully consider whether it is made of recycled materials and/or is itself recyclable. Plastic-free packaging and packaging that can be returned to a reusable system or that stands out due to particularly intelligent and sustainable packaging design score better with us.

Environmentally friendly use
especially sustainable Use

This product scores in at least 50% of our characteristics for environmentally friendly use, making it particularly sustainable. Even during your use, a product has an impact on the environment. That's why we look at whether you can save resources such as energy, water or material with the product. It is also important to us whether a product is repairable, durable and/or refillable.

especially sustainable Circulation capability

Unfortunately, this product still scores in too few of our characteristics for sustainable recyclability. This does not mean that the product is generally not sustainable, only that there is potential for more sustainability in the area of recyclability. A major challenge for sustainability is the integration of products into the biological and technical cycle. It is important here whether a product is recyclable, biodegradable or industrially or at home compostable. We also rate positively if the manufacturer offers a take-back system for the product and transfers it back into the cycle itself. Unfortunately, this product does not score in any of our characteristics for comprehensive recyclability.
