The Granny Paring Knife is a useful little knife with a reverse-curved shape.

This compact paring knife is terrific when used on small foods you hold in your hand while peeling or cutting, like strawberries and apricots, and works equally well whether cutting toward or away from you. All Rada knives are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee.

Outstanding Performance: Granny Paring Knife

  • Coming in at just 5⁷/8" overall, the Granny Paring Knife blade is a mere 2⅜" long, featuring that distinctive reverse-curved shape that cuts and slices in any direction.

    Nice and sharp, sturdy and well made, small and comfortable to hold, this knife is especially well suited to small, spherical foods or for detailed work that needs a bit of finesse. So whether you’re slicing strawberries for fruit pizza, peeling apples for pie, or creating garnishes for your next get-together, this paring knife will be your best friend!

    Like all our knives, the surgical-quality, T420 high-carbon stainless steel blade is hand sharpened to a razor-sharp edge and built to last. It’s hollow ground to ensure a precision concave surface for maximum edge retention.

    Available in two handle finishes—solid brushed aluminum and black stainless steel resin.

    Our Granny Paring Knife is also available in The Starter Gift Set - Part 2, All-Star Paring Gift Set, and Meal Prep Gift Set.

    Customers tell us everyone should have at least one!

    Product Warranty: The Rada Guarantee

  • Hand washing all fine cutlery is recommended.

    Hand washing Rada’s silver-handle knives and utensils is recommended. This prevents microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge, eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher's high temperatures and abrasive detergents, and helps protect your cutlery from corrosion, ultimately extending the life of the finish. While Rada’s black-handle knives are more tolerant to the dishwasher, Rada recommends hand washing all fine cutlery.

    We all love the Granny!

    I have had a Granny paring knife for several years and recently purchased several to share at a family reunion. One of my cousins used it immediately and said it was her new favorite knife. These are great little prizes for an adult gathering.

    Love my Granny paring knife!

    It is so nice to have a great quality paring knife when peeling peaches and pears for canning. I love the shape and size of Granny’s paring knife. The black handle is my new favorite. Highly recommend Rada products!

    FAQs

    What are the three handle styles?

    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.

    What’s the best way to care for Rada cutlery?

    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

    What makes Rada knives so special?

    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!

    Can this product be used with both hands?

    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.

    How is the Quick Edge Sharpener used?

    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

    Why Rada?

    Rada Mfg. Co. has been manufacturing cutlery in the Midwest since 1948, selling more than 170 million knives since that time. Every product is 100% made in the USA, from raw materials all the way through construction.

    We started out in a small facility producing just six products and three gift sets, several of which are still in production today. We’ve come a long way since then and offer 125+ products from knives, utensils, and gift sets to kitchen tools, food mixes, and recipe and gift books.

    Through the years, Rada has remained strong, with this goal at the forefront: providing outstanding knives at an exceptional value that everyone can afford. Because sharp knives shouldn’t be a luxury.

    Rada also helps thousands of fundraising groups raise money for their causes through our Fundraising Programs and provides an opportunity for individuals and small businesses to sell and profit from Rada products through our Reseller Program.
