Rada Cutlery

It doesn’t get more American than Rada Cutlery. Founded post-war in 1948, Rada Cutlery made use of aluminum manufacturing previously going to war efforts.

The coolest thing about Rada Cutlery? They are super involved in the community. Rada started out only selling knives through fundraisers. Now, you can get their products online, but you can still get them through fundraisers, too. Rada supports over 12,000 groups to raise funds for schools, churches, youth sports, women’s leagues, veteran’s groups, and more! We LOVE to see it!

Warther Cutlery

Talk about a prodigy! Warther Cutlery’s story begins with its founder whittling at the tender age of five. As he got older, he wasn’t happy with how store-bought knives wouldn’t stay sharp, so he began researching how to make his own–and HE DID. His knives retained their sharp edge even after carving ebony and ivory, so his mother asked him to make some kitchen knives for her. So, at the ripe age of 17 he created his first kitchen knife. 

That first American-made knife turned into a booming business that has made blades for many people, including past presidents! How American is that?! Warther Cutlery boasts over 120 years in the knife industry. All of their kitchen knives are made by hand in their Dover, Ohio facility!

You know your mom deserves the best American-made kitchen knives, too. Warther has some excellent specific-use knives for tomato slicing, sandwich making, and brisket carving. MMMMM, just thinking about it has us craving mom’s home cooking…
