Five-Star Gifts: Starter Set

  • The Starter Gift Set’s seven-piece set is impressive! This set, like all Rada Gift Sets, is available in two handle finishes—solid brushed aluminum and black stainless steel resin.

    The Regular Paring Knife is Rada’s all-time best-selling knife. Its 3¼" blade is the ideal size for tons of cutting tasks. Nearly any meal prep will benefit from this knife.

    Rada’s Vegetable Peeler is one of our most popular products, and simply the best vegetable peeler you can find! The 1¾" blade swivels and works well for right- or left-handed people.

    Our world-famous Tomato Slicer boasts a dual-serrated 5" blade, allowing cooks of all skill levels to make a clean, straight cut through tomatoes every time. Great for use on citrus, peppers, and heads of lettuce too!

    The Super Parer, with its 4⅜" blade, is the largest paring knife Rada manufactures. Wonderful when cutting lots of larger fruits and vegetables and even works remarkably well when breaking down a whole chicken.

    Nothing slices all types of bread better than our 6" Bread Knife—no smashing or crumbling! This is the best bread knife you’ll find. Use it on bagels and rolls and even fibrous vegetables like cabbage.

    The blade of Rada’s Cook’s Knife is just 6¼" long, allowing the gentle rocking motion needed for cutting or mincing while still being easy to control. Use it to cut anything from ice cream cake to meat. Now that’s versatility!

    Our Slicer is one of three original knives produced by Rada over 60 years ago, and it’s still going strong! An impressive 7" blade will easily carve a holiday turkey, but is equally useful when cutting a melon.

    All gift sets are packaged in attractive gift boxes that make wrapping unnecessary—simply add a bow. These uniquely designed boxes have form-fitting thermal inserts to keep the knives in place, making them safe for gift giving as well as storage.

    Customers say The Starter Gift Set is one of the best sets they have ever purchased!

  • Hand washing all fine cutlery is recommended.

    Hand washing Rada’s silver-handle knives and utensils 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 the finish. While Rada’s black-handle knives are more tolerant to the dishwasher, Rada recommends hand washing all fine cutlery.

    FAQs

    What are the three handle styles?

    Silver. Our silver permanently cast solid brushed aluminum handles with a satin finish were the “originals,” dating back to post-WWII (1948), when manufacturing of non-war-related products began in earnest.

    Black. Our black handles are made from stainless steel resin and were introduced in 2007 to offer more choices to our customers. This handle is also more tolerant of dishwashers.

    Anthem Wave. In 2019, another black handle was introduced. Called Anthem Wave, it has an ergonomic grip and is slightly longer and larger than our other handles, great for people who prefer a bigger handle.

    What’s the best way to care for Rada cutlery?

    The best way to care for all fine cutlery is to hand wash and then dry immediately. Hand washing eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher’s high temperatures and abrasive detergents, prevents microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge, and helps protect your knives from corrosion, ultimately extending the life of their finish. Caring for your knives properly assures they’ll remain sharp and in great condition for a lifetime of use

    What makes Rada knives so special?

    Every Rada Cutlery product is 100% American made, from raw materials through construction. Always have been; always will be.

    Our knives are crafted with surgical-quality high-carbon stainless steel and hand sharpened, giving every Rada knife a razor-sharp edge.

    All non-serrated Rada knives can be easily resharpened when needed, to achieve a like-new blade again and again.

    Every product manufactured by Rada Mfg. Co. is GUARANTEED FOR LIFE from defects in material or workmanship. Our craftsmanship is topnotch, meaning you’ll probably never need this guarantee, but if you do, we’ll be here for you to honor our promise.

    Our products last. Families often pass their knives from generation to generation. The low price you’ll pay for that kind of quality is remarkable!

    Can this product be used with both hands?

    Hooray! All Rada knives (as well as the Quick Edge Knife Sharpener) and utensils can be used by either right- or left-handed users equally well. Our Cheese Knife has special features designed to work its best when held in the right hand. However, customers have told us they use the knife with their left hand without issue.

    Every serrated Rada knife and “cutting utensil” is made using the BEST type of serration for its intended purpose. Non-serrated blades are hollow ground on both sides for ultimate cutting and slicing.

    How is the Quick Edge Sharpener used?

    Simply grip the sharpener’s durable nylon base at the end furthest from the wheels with one hand and pull a knife blade between the wheels of the sharpener at a slight upward angle using the other hand; repeat four to six times. This works equally well whether you hold the sharpener with your left hand (logo is facing you for “righties”) or with your right hand (logo is facing away from you for “lefties”). Now, carefully wipe off the blade to remove any metal shavings and you’re done!

    The secret is in the Quick Edge Knife Sharpener’s dual steel wheels, which intersect to sharpen both sides of a knife blade at the same time. The specially hardened, high-carbon stainless wheels ensure that blades reach their sharpest point with only a few passes

    Why Rada?

    Rada Mfg. Co. has been manufacturing cutlery in the Midwest since 1948, selling more than 170 million knives since that time. Every product is 100% made in the USA, from raw materials all the way through construction.

    We started out in a small facility producing just six products and three gift sets, several of which are still in production today. We’ve come a long way since then and offer 125+ products from knives, utensils, and gift sets to kitchen tools, food mixes, and recipe and gift books.

    Through the years, Rada has remained strong, with this goal at the forefront: providing outstanding knives at an exceptional value that everyone can afford. Because sharp knives shouldn’t be a luxury.

    Rada also helps thousands of fundraising groups raise money for their causes through our Fundraising Programs and provides an opportunity for individuals and small businesses to sell and profit from Rada products through our Reseller Program.
