The Rada Stubby Butcher knife is a versatile knife that you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again.


This stainless steel knife features a 5 ⅜ inch blade that makes it an all-purpose tool for your kitchen. Its large handle makes it comfortable to use, while the blade strikes just the right balance; it’s big enough to cut large items, but small enough to afford the user maximum control.

It can be used effectively on just about anything you will cook. Meats, fruits, vegetables, and more are just right for this. The sturdy, strong blade is great when cutting ribs, or when slicing a pineapple. It’s even ideal when cutting moist cakes or that perfect slice of pie.

Our customers agree that the Stubby Butcher is the best knife for a wide range of their cooking needs.

“I bought this one to replace the one I lost. I have had several Rada cutlery items in my kitchen for 30+ years. These are my favorite knives. They are practically indestructible,” said one customer.

“Look pretty sleek. Crazy sharp. Very affordable compared to other knives of their quality. Have a set with both the silver stainless steel handles and black resin handles, and both look and work incredibly well,” said another.

“These Rada knives are really terrific. Be careful -- they are very sharp. And, they hold their sharpness. The knife is relatively lightweight and easy to hold. It cuts effortlessly, smoothly and very clean. I like the way it fits in the hand,” raved another customer in a 5-star Amazon review.

Since 1948, Rada Cutlery has been producing cutlery and kitchenware whose high quality is only matched by their remarkable value. All of Rada’s products are designed and manufactured entirely in the USA, so not only are the kitchen knives crafted with superior workmanship, their purchase supports American workers!

The Stubby Butcher, like all Rada cutlery, comes with a Lifetime Guarantee!

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.

Mother's Day Gift

My husband gave this to his mom for Mother's Day. We had previously purchased a tomato knife for her and she said she loved it and used it for everything. She loves her Rada knives. The next gift will be a Rada sharpener!

Sharp enough, but..

The blades are a lot thinner than I would like. This makes them flex when you try to cut with them. The finish on the handles is also uncomfortable. It may just be me, but when the handle is wet it's like nails on a chalkboard for me. I had to sand the rough finish off to make them comfortable. I won't return them because I need knives, but I won't buy them again when I need replacements and when I find knives with thicker blades I will replace them. It's a shame, really, because I liked the idea of American made stainless knives.
