The Heavy Duty Paring knife is one of our longer paring knives, one ideally suited for a wide range of kitchen tasks.


Featuring a 3 ¼-inch blade, the Heavy Duty Paring knife is great for cutting, slicing, and coring fruits and vegetables. Its handle is slightly longer than other paring knives, meaning that you have superior leverage when cutting an array of foods, making cutting and slicing tasks as simple as can be.

The extra control afforded by the Heavy Duty Paring means that it is your go-to knife for cutting larger foods, such as cucumbers or potatoes, while its stainless steel blade also makes quick work of small and medium items, too, such as apples, onions, or strawberries. It’s even useful for preparing and trimming meats such as chicken breasts! This large paring knife is one of the most useful and commonly used tools in the kitchen of anyone who owns it.

Our customers agree that the Heavy Duty Paring is an essential part of any cook’s kitchen.

“Best knife I have ever owned,” raved one Heavy Duty Paring user. “I am now buying ONLY Rada products for my kitchen!”

“This is a great paring knife. Cuts everything,” said another satisfied customer.

“This may be the best paring knife I have ever had. This knife is well-balanced, sharp and able to handle even chicken bones,” raved another customer in a 5-star Amazon review.

The Heavy Duty Paring knife, like all Rada products, is 100% manufactured in the USA.

Care Instructions
(Hand Wash VS Dishwasher)

Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because:

  1. Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades' cutting edge.
  2. Recent government mandated changes to phosphate-free dish washing detergents creates a harsh environment for metals - including stainless steel blades and in particular our silver brushed aluminum handles.
  3. Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying that are incompatible with fine cutlery.

Some customers choose to use the dishwasher with varying results depending on their detergent, water mineral composition and dishwasher. The combination of these factors affect the pace and degree of oxidation experienced.

    Great Knives!

    These knives are the best, been using them for years and was pleased to see them doing fundraising. It's great to be able to help out AND get a great product at the same time.

    Best Paring Knife

    I actually purchased this for a gift but I have had one myself for years and it still is as sharp as it was when I purchased it. And this holds true for all of the knives.

    Love Rada Products

    I've had Rada knives for years--they're the first knives I grab in the kitchen. I haven't tried the sharpener yet, but I'm sure I'll be happy with it too. I've recommended your products to friends.

    Best knives I have ever used

    I have Rada knives that I received as a bridal shower gift. I absolutely love them. They are better than any other knives I have ever used. I love that they are made in the USA. Love that they are reasonably prices and by purchasing them, I am helping my favorite non-profit.
