Black Resin Handle (W240)

This knife will maneuver like a paring knife but give you the control and versatility of a larger knife. This is a knife that anybody—whether or not they’re experienced in the kitchen—will find many ways to use.

We’re so confident in our 100% Made in the USA products, we back them with Rada’s Lifetime Guarantee!


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

The Cook’s Utility isn’t big, but it is mighty. Considered a medium-sized knife, the Cook’s Utility handles like a paring knife but is as versatile as one of our larger knives, like the French Chef. This is a favorite of people everywhere, whether they’re a beginner or well-seasoned chef.

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 Utility?

This knife cuts, slices, and dices zucchini, turnips, and oranges, but it won’t let anything stand in its way. Perfectly suited for serious cooking tasks, it’s strong enough for cutting through bones in meat, yet gentle enough to cut crackers without crumbling them.

What handle styles are available?

This knife has two handle options. The silver handle is made from permanently cast silver brushed aluminum and has a satin finish. The black handle is constructed from black stainless steel resin. Both 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.

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.
