I came across one of these knives by accident. My son, after coming home for a brief period after college, had left a butcher's knife behind. It sat there in it's sleeve for ages before I even used it. I think I finally used it when my Henkel butcher knife was in use when family was at the house helping prepare a holiday meal. I loved that Rada butcher knife. As silly as it seems (and there were no markings on the knife) I never noticed the maker until a few months ago... it was on the sleeve! I did some research on these American made knives and they have a pretty good rep! And they are (I hate using this word for something good) CHEAP! I've recently purchased several. They are great for my small hands. German knives are great, but heavier and not really the best for smaller hands. I was going to research some Japanese knives, but I'm now a big fan of Rada knives. And it feels good to buy American made!
I'm curious if others here have tried them. I am very happy with mine! Rada site is linked below.
