The Heavy Duty Paring knife is one of our longer paring knives, one ideally suited for a wide range of kitchen tasks.


Featuring a 3 ¼-inch blade, the Heavy Duty Paring knife is great for cutting, slicing, and coring fruits and vegetables. Its handle is slightly longer than other paring knives, meaning that you have superior leverage when cutting an array of foods, making cutting and slicing tasks as simple as can be.

The extra control afforded by the Heavy Duty Paring means that it is your go-to knife for cutting larger foods, such as cucumbers or potatoes, while its stainless steel blade also makes quick work of small and medium items, too, such as apples, onions, or strawberries. It’s even useful for preparing and trimming meats such as chicken breasts! This large paring knife is one of the most useful and commonly used tools in the kitchen of anyone who owns it.

Our customers agree that the Heavy Duty Paring is an essential part of any cook’s kitchen.

“Best knife I have ever owned,” raved one Heavy Duty Paring user. “I am now buying ONLY Rada products for my kitchen!”

“This is a great paring knife. Cuts everything,” said another satisfied customer.

“This may be the best paring knife I have ever had. This knife is well-balanced, sharp and able to handle even chicken bones,” raved another customer in a 5-star Amazon review.

The Heavy Duty Paring knife, like all Rada products, is 100% manufactured in the USA.

Care Instructions
(Hand Wash VS Dishwasher)

Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because:

  1. Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades' cutting edge.
  2. Recent government mandated changes to phosphate-free dish washing detergents creates a harsh environment for metals - including stainless steel blades and in particular our silver brushed aluminum handles.
  3. Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying that are incompatible with fine cutlery.

Some customers choose to use the dishwasher with varying results depending on their detergent, water mineral composition and dishwasher. The combination of these factors affect the pace and degree of oxidation experienced.

Rada is the best

My Rasa knives are great! Easy to keep sharp. Learned through the years that ALL quality knives do better with hand washing. They are extremely easy to clean and dry - and they hold their edge MUCH better when not subjected to the heat of a dishwasher!

I sent an earlier email in which I told you I had become a Rada fan because your knives are sharp and very reasonably priced. I have a collection of Wusthof and Henckel knives, but I find myself looking for my Rada knives, which seem to stay sharp while my other knives need sharpening before every use.

Heavy Duty Paring Knife

Great paring knife. Rada has absolutely great quality products....

love/hate relationship!

I love my Rada utility paring knives. However, I can no longer use the small paring knives because of the arthritis in my hands (I have 4 of them!). The handle is too small around, and I cannot grip the handle. I wish they would make the paring knives available with a FAT handle, especially the granny paring knife. So, if you have these issues, order the utility paring knife or any of the other larger knives. You won't be sorry.
