Our Chef Select Set combines serious knives for the serious kitchen, although every home should include these three knives! Our Cook’s Utility, Cook’s Knife, and French Chef Knife will get down to business and create a chopping frenzy, while the offset handles keep knuckles safe. Often compared to Japanese santoku knives, this set of knives will create gift set envy, if such a thing exists!
All blades are made from surgical-quality, T420 high-carbon stainless steel, and all Rada knives are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee.
• Silver Handles (item S57)
• Black Handles (item G257)
If your gift list includes a professional chef, serious cook, or anyone who wants to hone their knife skills, this is the set to buy. This set, like all Rada Gift Sets, is available in two handle finishes—solid brushed aluminum and black stainless steel resin.
Our Cook’s Utility maneuvers like a paring knife with the versatility of a larger knife. Even though it has a razor-sharp 4¾" blade that cuts, slices, and dices nearly any type of food, it’s very humble and does not intimidate.
The Cook’s Knife is a bit bigger, with a 6¼" blade. This knife, designed to rock gently, enables the cook to cut and mince all kinds of food in an easy-to-control way. The thin, razor-sharp blade makes it possible to cut items like crispy crackers without crumbling them.
Rada’s impressive French Chef has a whopping 8½" blade, designed to quickly and simply rock back and forth for dicing and mincing vegetables and fresh herbs. Turn the knife on its side and use its large flat surface to transfer chopped foods from cutting board to bowl.
All gift sets are packaged in attractive gift boxes that make wrapping unnecessary—simply add a bow. These uniquely designed boxes have form-fitting thermal inserts to keep the knives in place, making them safe for gift giving as well as storage.
Customers who purchase the Chef Select Set—for themselves or for others—say the sharpness and quality are amazing!

Hand washing all fine cutlery is recommended.
Hand washing Rada’s silver-handle knives and utensils is recommended. This prevents microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge, eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher's high temperatures and abrasive detergents, and helps protect your cutlery from corrosion, ultimately extending the life of the finish. While Rada’s black-handle knives are more tolerant to the dishwasher, Rada recommends hand washing all fine cutlery.
The knifes are super sharp. The blades are somewhat thin making the knives a little flimsy.
Excellent. He loves the balance of the knives, and finally has some that will hold their edge.
I've been using Rada ever since my sister bought me a set of steak knives. I love how easy it is to sharpen them with the Rada sharpener. My grandson is the recipient of this set, he is 13 and getting into smoking BBQ, and meal prep. We will be adding to his collection. I think the next purchase will be the fillet knife.
Overall these knives are far superior to anything we have had in the past, and their AMERICAN made. You should advertise this fact a lot louder. Sal M.
