Who We Are

Rada Cutlery Tomato Slicer with fresh cut garden tomatoes.

Since our inception in 1948, our cutlery has been recognized as “something special”. In fact, we have believed that our success has been in a large part due to our many “fans” that have enthusiastically told their friends and neighbors about our great kitchen knives and utensils. We never tire of hearing an excited customer tell us matter-of-factly “These are the best knives I’ve ever used”.

We are proud to continue our mission of offering practical, useful and affordable kitchen knives and utensils that you will love to cook with! We are also excited about our new stoneware and soy wax candles that continue our tradition of providing superior products and value to our customers!

Originally manufactured in Waterloo, Iowa, in 1974 we moved our operation 20 miles to Waverly, Iowa. At the time of the move 18 employees worked at Rada Mfg. Co. Since then we have moved to a larger building and have had to expand it three times to keep up with the demand that you, our loyal customers, have created for Rada Cutlery.

State of the art order processing system

Today, over 90 employees earn their living working at Rada Mfg. Co. Our product line has expanded over the years as we strive to meet the requests from customers. With growth comes challenges and changes in our operation but one thing remains the same... we never have a “dull” moment when it comes to producing the “best in cutlery” for you. We look forward to continuing our proud tradition.
