Fresh is Best!
Everyone loves sweet corn! Even self-professed vegetable haters, children and adults alike, still love the taste of sweet corn. There is something special about corn on the cob served steaming hot and slathered with butter.

Which is the Best Knife for Cutting Corn Off the Cob?
Everyone has their own special “go to” knife or utensil in the kitchen. The same goes for the best knife to cut the corn off the cob. We have compiled a list of 4 knives and 1 utensil that our customers and the employees at Rada Mfg. Co. have expressed their love for when it is time to cut corn.
An all around favorite is the Rada Stubby Butcher knife. With it’s 5 3/8″ blade and large comfortable handle you can easily cut bushels of corn.
An employee favorite is the Super Parer. This all around go-to knife is the largest of the paring knives Rada has to offer. The large handle provides comfort while cutting and the 4 3/8″ tapered blade is razor sharp to make cutting corn fast and easy.
The utensil that received the most suggestions by our customers is the Deluxe Peeler and we have to agree with them. This is probably the fastest cutting tool when it comes to removing the kernels from the cob at lightning speeds. The Deluxe Peeler features an incredibly sharp blade that swivels with the shape of the corn cob and can be used by both right and left handed users. Give it a try the next time you are cutting corn, you might be surprised.
Another customer suggestion that we receive the most mentions is the Tomato Slicer. While slicing tomatoes was the main focus on the development of the Tomato Slicer we have found that it works like a charm on other vegetables such as cutting corn. The dual serrated blade ensures a straight cut and will stay sharp for lifetime.
Our last suggested corn cutting knife is the Serrated Steak Knife. The smaller serrations on the blade ensure a clean, easy cut cob after cob. And there is no need to stop to resharpen it, because the serrated blade will hold its edge for many years.
