Rada’s Cook’s Utility Knife is a knife that will quickly become an indispensable part of your kitchen!


This stainless steel knife features a 4 ¾-inch blade that gives you a medium-sized knife that handles like a paring knife. You’ll find that it maneuvers so well that it cuts, slices, and dices with the efficiency and grace of a paring knife while offering the versatility of a larger one.

Use this on vegetables like cucumbers and radishes, or fruits such as lemons and limes. It’s hand-sharpened for a razor edge, so you’ll find it can work well on whatever you need to cut, such as meat or seafood.

Our customers agree that the Cook’s Utility Knife is the best knife in their kitchen.

“This is the best chopping knife I have EVER owned. It cuts ANYTHING, veggies, tomatoes, bones in meat, you name it! Very light weight, easy to clean and very sharp,” wrote one customer. “Don't know how I got along without this Rada chopping knife. You gotta' get one. For the money, it is absolutely incredible. I am going to buy a couple more Rada knives.”

“Found this knife by word-of-mouth. It is my favorite knife!! Sharp as can be and easily re-sharpened when it looses its edge with the available sharpener,” said another satisfied customer.

“Ordered this knife based on past experience with a small paring knife, which I found of good quality and sharp! This knife is no different, fells good in the hand, and is very sharp. Will certainly continue to add these knives to my kitchen,” raved another customer in a 5-star Amazon review.

Care Instructions
(Hand Wash VS Dishwasher)

Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because:

  1. Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades' cutting edge.
  2. Recent government mandated changes to phosphate-free dish washing detergents creates a harsh environment for metals - including stainless steel blades and in particular our silver brushed aluminum handles.
  3. Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying that are incompatible with fine cutlery.

Some customers choose to use the dishwasher with varying results depending on their detergent, water mineral composition and dishwasher. The combination of these factors affect the pace and degree of oxidation experienced.

    Great knives!

    I bought several knives to give our grandson a starter set. We have used the knives for many years. They are easy to sharpen, cut very nicely, and stay sharp. Great product!
