French Chef

24 reviews

The French Chef Knife is perfect for any cook who wants to take their chopping skills to a new level. You’ll feel and look like a pro with this multi-use knife!

The large cutting surface rocks back and forth, making dicing and mincing fun and easy, while the offset handle keeps your knuckles safely away from the blade. All Rada knives are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee.

• Silver Handle (item R131)
• Black Handle (item W231)


Outstanding Performance: French Chef

  • The professional design of the French Chef Knife features an 8½" blade that boasts a large cutting surface specially shaped to rock. This makes dicing and mincing veggies and fresh herbs a cinch. Turn the knife on its side and use the flat surface for smashing garlic then transfer it from the cutting board to your bowl or pan using the same flat surface.

    Professional chefs will tell you the French Chef is the most valuable tool on the job, one that home cooks should own too.

    The French Chef, like all Rada knives, is of superior quality, suitable for cooks with the highest standards, and loved by everyone who uses it. The surgical-quality, T420 high-carbon stainless steel blade is hand sharpened to a razor-sharp edge.

    Available in two handle finishes—solid brushed aluminum and black stainless steel resin.

    Our French Chef Knife is also available in our Chef Select Set.

    Our customers say the French Chef could become the most-used knife in your kitchen.

  • 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.

    Bad product, Bad customer service

    Had to return 9 pieces with aluminum handles. Handles were defective and were making my hands black. Just wanted to exchange for the same 9 pieces with black handles instead. Even though it was an even exchange due to no fault of my own, Kristi in customer service would not cover my return postage. Cost me $12.55. I emailed her with my grievance and asked if she could, for good will, throw in a "little gift", perhaps a knife sharpener, to help with my added expense which I should not have been responsible for. My email was ignored and I received nothing for my troubles. Defective product, defective customer service!

    Love RADA Knives

    I love RADA knives and have used them for years. I really like the French Chef Knife that I ordered. My only complaint is that the veggies I chop seam to stick to the sides of the knife, especially potatoes.
