With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, are you thinking about gifts for your mom? Are you remembering the times you spent together?

Millions of daughters have fond memories of cooking in the kitchen with their mothers. And many may remember using a specific paring knife. More often than not, that paring knife is from Rada Cutlery.

Memories of Mom


We get lots of comments from customers who were first sold on Rada when they cooked with their mothers.

A fundraiser from South Carolina first received her Rada knives from her mom:

“I love your knives and kitchen utensils. My Mom bought me my first few pieces and I’m hooked!”

Another fundraiser from Oregon holds a special place in her heart for Rada because of her mom:

“My mom sold Rada knives for years. She died at age 95, and I want to carry on the tradition in her memory for my church. I LOVE my Rada knives, and so do all of my kids! Thank you for a great product which I will be proud to sell.”

From California, a fundraiser noted that her mom knew best when it came to fundraising:

“I would like to be selling these products at a harvest boutique.  My mom used to sell them for fundraising for our church many years ago.  People are asking for them again.”

A young woman from Georgia said:

“I grew up watching my mom use Rada Knives & as she taught me to use them, I  grew to love them.  I am actually using the same knives now that my Mom used when I was a kid.  Great quality! I would love to have more.”

Another daughter cherishes her mother’s memory through her Rada knives:

“My Mother’s Sunday School class used your knives as a fundraiser years ago (she passed away 16 years ago). The only paring knife I still use is one that I got from her years before her death.”

Did your mother love Rada knives too? Share your memories with us in the comments section below.

Give the Gift of Rada Knives

On this coming Mother’s Day, give the gift of Rada Cutlery to your mom or to your own children. Relive your memories and try cooking together again. Remember the fun times you have had and share them with your children.

We have created a gift basket using products every mother will enjoy. We used our Stoneware Loaf Pan in place of the basket and filled it the Lemon Pound Cake Quick Mix, a 4 oz Lilac candle and a cinnamon spice candle with decorative cup cake liners and canning jar lids (makes mom think you made something from scratch), a Serverspoon to mix the Pound Cake, and a 6″ Bread Knife to slice it.
