The Extraordinary Value of Rada's French Chef

  • This professional chef knife features an 8 ½-inch blade, one designed with a large cutting surface and specially shaped so that it can rock to dice and mince vegetables and fresh herbs. Ask any professional chef and they’ll tell you that the French Chef knife is their most valuable tool on the job, one that home cooks who prepare top-quality meals should also consider.

    Rada knives such as the French Chef are of superior quality, suitable for even cooks with the highest standards. That’s because we produce them with surgical-quality, high-carbon stainless steel blades, and hand sharpen them for a razor edge. An offset handle keeps you knuckles clear of the blade so you can prepare meals safely.

    Countless customers have spoken, and they aren’t hesitant to declare this the best chef knife they’ve owned.

  • Blade Length: 8 1/2 inches

    Blade Height: 2 3/16 inches

    Total Length: 13 inches

    Product Warranty: The Rada Guarantee

  • Hand washing all fine cutlery 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 their finish.

    I recommend this product

    Made for small hands but still a nice knife.

    This is a good knife but if you have large hands i would upgrade to a slightly bigger handle. Made in the USA at the right price and quality.

    French Chef Knife

    It fits my hand securely. It’s balanced and sharp! I can chiffonade basil or chop kale easily. I’m a vegetarian, so my experience is with plants. I love this knife.

    The Best!!!

    I need a big knife for cutting big sweet potatoes, and this knife worked perfectly!!! Couldn’t be happier!!!

    It is very sharp and glides effortlessly through anything we are cutting. We still have our old one that is also very good. Have had it for over 10 years. Only bought the new one as someone chinked the old one trying to get coconut shells off. But it still cuts great. Highly recommended.
