The Rada Cutlery W238 Serrated Slicing Knife will effortlessly cut through large fruits and vegetables. You won’t find a better knife for cutting heads of lettuce or slicing through the tough outer skin of melon. It will make short work of meats that require slicing such as ham and roasts. The blade on the serrated slicing knife measures 7 inches, has an overall length of 11-1/4 inches and is made from surgical grade, T420 high carbon stainless steel. It is wide and boasts a double-sided serrated edge. The hollow ground blade ensures a precision concave surface for maximum edge retention. The handle on this serrated slicing knife is comprised of a black stainless steel resin that can be washed in the dishwasher. Hand washing fine cutlery is recommended but this handle is dishwasher tolerant. Rada Mfg. Co. is located in Waverly, Iowa and has been manufacturing cutlery in the USA since 1948.
