This one is aptly named, taking on those heavy-duty jobs with ease. Thanks to its handle length, you'll get a good firm grip while cutting. Its 3¼” non-serrated blade glides easily through all kinds of food. The Heavy Duty Paring Knife works hard, so you don't have to.
The straight-edge blade cuts smoothly through cucumbers and onions for salads, apples and pears for cobblers, and yes, even those pork chops that need to be trimmed and cut for dinner. For all the tough chores in your kitchen, this is the knife you'll reach for.
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 resharpened 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.
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 bought two of the heavy duty paring knives and I love them. I have always trusted the Rada brand so I was sure these knives were exactly what I wanted. I was not disappointed. Just the right size and very sharp. Makes food prep a breeze.
Love my heavy duty paring knife! Since the handle is a little heavier, it stays put in my hand, especially for vegetables with thicker skins!
Must have! Great for just about anything you need to do.
Thanks for pointing out how utilitarian the Heavy Duty Paring knife is -it can handle many cutting tasks while cooking!
I have been using Rada knives for many years. They are by far the best knives I have ever owned. The knives, ladle, and colander that I just ordered are a gift for our granddaughter. She has received other items from Rada as gifts from us.
