Meet Rada’s Paring Knives

The Granny Paring Knife

Granny Paring Knife

Rada’s Granny Paring Knife has a 2 3/8″ blade. The overall length is 5 7/8”. The curved blade helps with cutting items you are holding toward you.

An Amazon user from California said:

“For the price this is a very useful kitchen tool that filled a niche left open by the nice German knife sets I’ve had. Although the price is low it doesn’t feel like a cheap knife. The aluminum handle gives it a nice balance in the hand while the blade design makes quick work of paring/pealing/coring tasks that are awkward with a regular knife. Rada also makes a great serrated tomato slicer.”

The Peeling Paring Knife

Another Amazon user said:

“My mother got one of these knives as a gift several years ago and claimed it was the only knife handle that did not bother her hand. When I found them online I purchased another for her and one for each of my aunts. They love them. My mother was so excited that I found the knives that she had my dad buy her a set of Rada knives. She’s used them every day for over a year and they are still sharp and look like new.”

“Best knife I have ever owned…I am now buying ONLY Rada products for my kitchen! Was trying to cut up some steak into small pieces for my dogs…unable to “saw” through the meat with my big old serrated steak knives…got out this little paring knife and voila! It cut through the meat like it was butter and the meat was cold also! Just watch out…all this wonderful knives are extremely sharp! Hand wash them and dry right away. I have owned this one and the tomato slicer for over a year and no discoloration at all. I just ordered the serrated pie slicer and also the meat cutting set. I am happy these are made in the USA also…much, much better quality and the price is very affordable!”

Paring Knives Video Transcript:

Hi, Kristy in the Rada Kitchen, and I’d like to introduce you to all the paring knives we manufacture here. We have six styles, all different shapes and sizes. It will meet every vegetable or fruit slicing that you need to do in the kitchen.

Rada has six different styles of paring knives. The first one is the Granny Parer. This one has a 2 and 3/8 inch blade, and as you can see, it’s a reversed curved blade. It goes to the shape of an orange or an apple or a pear. It’s good for that intricate garnishing.

Then we have the Peeling Paring. This has a 2 and a half inch blade. The blade’s a little shorter, so it’s good to cut up mushrooms, smaller potatoes or kiwi.

Here is our best-selling, most popular Regular Paring Knife. This has a three and a quarter inch blade, and overall it’s six and three fourths. This will do every chore in your house. We’ve sold millions of these, it’s the best-selling.

Then due to a lot of requests for a serrated paring knife, we came up with a Serrated Paring Knife with a super fine serration. It has little teeth in it. This is good for woody fruits and vegetables or something that has a tough outer core. It’s good for cutting into broccoli, cutting rhubarb.

Then we have the Heavy Duty Paring Knife with the three and quarter inch blade but with a different shape, almost like a little filet knife. This has a little longer handle too, easier to grip. This would be good for any larger potato, apples, anything that you have to pierce such as larger fruits like a lemon or a grapefruit.

Then our Super Parer is our biggest paring knife, it has the big handle so it’s comfortable, easy to grip. If you’re going to do a lot of cutting, it will take the wear and tear out of holding on to a smaller handle. Also again, it has that tapered blade. This would be good for large vaidailia onions or a big bunch of celery. And that’s the Super Parer.

We do offer all of these in a gift set. We call it the Paring Knife Gift Set which has all six of them. You don’t have to decide what to give them for a gift, you can just give them the whole thing. Those are available with a flocked insert, sturdy box, and a decorative lid. That’s the Rada Paring Knives.
