"Growing up I remember my great-grandmother, grandmother, and Mom all used Rada knives. They started me out with a set when I got married and I just ordered a set for my daughter as she starts out in her first apartment. I can't recommend these knives highly enough - they are amazing knives at an amazing price! Thank you from Generation Four."
