What is a Heavy Duty Paring Knife? How does it compare to other paring knives?

The Heavy Duty Paring Knife is aptly named, as it’s ready to take on the heavy-duty paring tasks in your kitchen. With a longer handle than Rada’s Regular Paring Knife and Peeling Paring Knife, this knife offers superior leverage when cutting.

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 Heavy Duty Paring Knife?

The Heavy Duty Paring Knife allows you to cut, core, and slice with ease. It makes quick work of prepping larger foods which many people appreciate, especially when slicing onions (keeping onion-induced tears to a minimum). Great for trimming meat too!

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.

Heavy duty paring

Absolutely love Rafa knives! Bought some 30 years ago. Still my favorite. Glad I found them again! New ones for me, gifts for folks I visit who don’t have them, gifts for folks who don’t know they need them. Thinking about more for me. (Always in the dishwasher). Please maintain the quality! Love them.

I am in the kitchen daily whipping one thing or another & love a good sharp knife to make my job easier. I have several rada knives and would highly recommend them

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.
