The Extraordinary Value of The Cook's Utility Knife

DESCRIPTION

Called “utility” because it is perfect for so many different cutting applications, the medium-sized Cook’s Utility knife is a sleek little gem with the maneuverability of a paring knife and the versatility of a larger one.

RECOMMENDED USES

The Cook’s Utility Knife easily cuts through anything from shallots and sausage to garlic and guava. This handy knife glides through chicken, cuts root vegetables for stew, and halves grapes for salad. Use your imagination and have a little fun in the kitchen.

BLADE

To assure our customers get the best knives available, all Rada blades are crafted from surgical-quality, T420 high-carbon stainless steel for a lifetime of durability then hollow ground for incredible sharpness. Designed with frequent use in mind, non-serrated, hollow-ground blades can be easily re-sharpened to achieve a like-new blade again and again. For easy at-home sharpening of non-serrated blades, check out Rada’s Quick Edge Knife Sharpener.

HANDLE

This knife has two handle options. The silver handle is made from permanently cast silver brushed aluminum and has a satin finish. The black handle is constructed from black stainless steel resin. Both are incredibly durable and fit beautifully into any kitchen décor.

Ready to Last a Lifetime

  • A dull knife is a dangerous knife! Keep your blades sharp. When Rada’s high-quality non-serrated blades need sharpening, there’s no need for a professional knife-sharpening service. You can do it yourself in a matter of seconds with the modest but oh-so incredibly effective Quick Edge Knife Sharpener.

  • 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.

    Cook's Utility Knife

    Where has the Cook's Utility Knife been all my life? This a a smaller knife but handles like one of the large professional knives the TV chefs use. I've been a Rada user for years and years and just like all the knives, this one doesn't disappoint!
