What is a Cook’s Knife? How does it compare to the Cook’s Utility?

The Cook’s Knife is one of those tools you love having in your kitchen. Its versatility makes it fun to use, while its size (larger than the Cook’s Utility) is easy to control. Not too big, not too small, but just right (and totally unpretentious).

What about the quality of Rada blades?

The hand-sharpened, razor-sharp edge of our surgical-quality, T420 high-carbon stainless steel blade ensures the durability of our knives. This specialized construction allows for easy at-home sharpening of smooth blades with Rada’s Quick Edge Knife Sharpener.

Why do I need a Cook’s Knife?

It might be easier to ask, What ISN’T it used for? Use it to chop, dice, and mince vegetables for a big pot of soup or casserole. Slice through cakes and brownies or cut through meat. The blade is ideal for easily mincing a bunch of fresh parsley or dill. You’ll find all kinds of uses for this knife.

What handle styles are available?

This knife has three handle options. The silver handle is made from permanently cast silver brushed aluminum and has a satin finish. The traditional black handle as well as the black handle of our Anthem Wave Series is constructed from black stainless steel resin. All fit beautifully into any kitchen décor.

What knives do I need?

If you’re just getting started and don’t know what to choose, pick a paring knife, a serrated knife, and either a cook’s knife, utility knife, or chef’s knife – you can do a lot with those three. After you’ve mastered these knives, build on your collection.

Great knife!

Very nice balance; easy to use; VERY sharp!

What is the best way to wash Rada knives and utensils?

Hand washing all fine cutlery is recommended. This prevents microscopic dings on the blades' cutting edge, eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher's high temperatures and abrasive detergents and helps protect your cutlery from corrosion, ultimately extending the life of their finish.
