The Cook’s Knife features a long, slightly curved blade that’s perfectly sized for easy control when dicing and mincing. Larger than the Cook’s Utility and smaller than the French Chef, it is often referred to as “just right.” Its versatility makes it an indispensable part of your kitchen.

The Cook’s Knife easily cuts through meat like it’s butter; chops, dices, and minces veggies and herbs for a big pot of soup or a casserole; and slices through cakes, brownies, and just about anything else you can dream up. We think every cook deserves the Cook's Knife! We know you'll agree.
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, check out Rada’s Quick Edge Knife Sharpener.
This knife has two handle options. The silver handle is made from permanently cast brushed aluminum and has a satin finish. The black handle is constructed from stainless steel resin. Both are incredibly durable and fit beautifully into any kitchen décor.

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.
I was not at all surprised to discover how much I love this Cook's knife. I have been using this brand of steak knives, paring knives, and vegetable peelers for over 30 years. I cook a lot, and there is no kitchen gadget that is more important than a good sharp knife!!
Have been buying Rada cutlery for many years, and love them. They last forever, are actually the only knives I use, and I have other makes but are shoved to the back of drawer
Love it. But then, I really like all my RADA knives. Cook's Knife makes all my chopping easier.
This is my second Rada knife, I purchased a tomato knife about 2 years ago. We liked the first knife and thought we would try a second. It is a good quality item, the price is good for the product received.
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.

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
