"My husband and I used to sell the Rada cutlery years and years ago. I have a grandson-in-law who loves to cook. When I saw what he was using in his kitchen, I ordered the most important Rada items, to me, and one of those was the tomato knife. He couldn't believe how it cut tomatoes. He loves the Rada items and wants more, Ha!"

Rada recommends hand washing all fine cutlery. Hand washing prevents microscopic dings on a knife blade’s cutting edge, eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher’s high temperatures and abrasive detergents that will negatively affect its handle, and ultimately extends the life of the knife.
While Rada’s black handle knives and utensils are more dishwasher tolerant than the silver handles, hand washing is still recommended.
It boils down to this: When knives last a lifetime like Rada Cutlery knives do, you want them to remain in tip-top condition so you can enjoy them for a lifetime.
Since 1948, Rada Cutlery has been crafting knives that stand the test of time. The hand-sharpened, razor-sharp edge of the surgical-quality, T420 high-carbon stainless steel blade ensures that durability reaches our customers...for a lifetime of use.
Every one of our products is handcrafted in the heart of the USA, with materials only from America. Our strong heritage and Midwest values assure dependability you can believe in and sharp good looks you’ll be proud to have in your home.
Outstanding knives. Exceptional value. That’s the Rada way.
I use this knife more than all the others. So convenient for some many things. Razor sharp slices like butter through vegetables. Will order several more and give as gifts.
I have used the tomato slicer for years that I got as a gift. I love it so much that I now have 18 to give to others as gifts. That tells the whole story as to what I think of the slicer.
I love my Rada tomato slicer knife! It's razor sharp and I've already used it on over 100 pounds of tomatoes!I realized, after I ordered it, that it was familiar. I feel very sure that my Grandma used one too! I love knowing that I'm using a great knife that is also American-made, from an old, proven, trusted company! Thank you for finding me on Facebook with an ad! You've got a new fan!
I still have the first Rada knife I bought 30 years ago! The tomato slicer I just bought is just as great as the first one. Rada is an excellent product!
Silver. Our silver permanently cast solid brushed aluminum handles with a satin finish were the “originals,” dating back to post-WWII (1948), when manufacturing of non-war-related products began in earnest
Black. Our black handles are made from stainless steel resin and were introduced in 2007 to offer more choices to our customers. This handle is also more tolerant of dishwashers.
Anthem Wave. In 2019, another black handle was introduced. Called Anthem Wave, it has an ergonomic grip and is slightly longer and larger than our other handles, great for people who prefer a bigger handle.
The best way to care for all fine cutlery is to hand wash and then dry immediately. Hand washing eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher’s high temperatures and abrasive detergents, prevents microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge, and helps protect your knives from corrosion, ultimately extending the life of their finish. Caring for your knives properly assures they’ll remain sharp and in great condition for a lifetime of use
Every Rada Cutlery product is 100% American made, from raw materials through construction. Always have been; always will be.
Our knives are crafted with surgical-quality high-carbon stainless steel and hand sharpened, giving every Rada knife a razor-sharp edge.
All non-serrated Rada knives can be easily resharpened when needed, to achieve a like-new blade again and again.
Every product manufactured by Rada Mfg. Co. is GUARANTEED FOR LIFE from defects in material or workmanship. Our craftsmanship is topnotch, meaning you’ll probably never need this guarantee, but if you do, we’ll be here for you to honor our promise.
Our products last. Families often pass their knives from generation to generation. The low price you’ll pay for that kind of quality is remarkable!
Hooray! All Rada knives (as well as the Quick Edge Knife Sharpener) and utensils can be used by either right- or left-handed users equally well. Our Cheese Knife has special features designed to work its best when held in the right hand. However, customers have told us they use the knife with their left hand without issue.
Every serrated Rada knife and “cutting utensil” is made using the BEST type of serration for its intended purpose. Non-serrated blades are hollow ground on both sides for ultimate cutting and slicing.
Simply grip the sharpener’s durable nylon base at the end furthest from the wheels with one hand and pull a knife blade between the wheels of the sharpener at a slight upward angle using the other hand; repeat four to six times. This works equally well whether you hold the sharpener with your left hand (logo is facing you for “righties”) or with your right hand (logo is facing away from you for “lefties”). Now, carefully wipe off the blade to remove any metal shavings and you’re done!
The secret is in the Quick Edge Knife Sharpener’s dual steel wheels, which intersect to sharpen both sides of a knife blade at the same time. The specially hardened, high-carbon stainless wheels ensure that blades reach their sharpest point with only a few passes
