The Rada Cutlery R134 Cook’s Knife is an all-purpose cooking knife that you will love to use for a variety of tasks. It’s great for dicing and mincing vegetables and also heavy and strong enough to break down bigger cuts of meat and whole chickens. It’s a larger knife, but less intimidating than a traditional chef knife with a 6-1/4 inch blade and an overall length of 10-7/8 inches. The hollow ground blade is made from surgical grade, T420 high carbon stainless steel that is hand sharpened. The cook’s knife blade is designed to gently rock making cutting and mincing a breeze. Its handle is slightly offset and made of permanently cast, solid brushed aluminum. The handle is designed for comfort and performance. Handwashing is recommended. Rada Mfg.
