This eight-piece Anthem Oak Block Set includes a beautiful 100% red oak block and seven of the most useful larger knives available. The empty slots remaining give you the freedom to purchase six additional knives--steak knives or any of our paring knives—to round out your set.
Anthem Handle: Item G458
Rada’s Anthem Oak Block Set is wonderful for any home cook or chef who wants a great lineup of Anthem Wave knives ready and waiting. It features seven different knives with an almost limitless variety of uses and an attractive oak storage block to protect the blades of those knives (tossing them into a drawer can cause dings) and consequently, your fingers as well.
Ready for your own home or as an outstanding and cherished gift for weddings, housewarmings, birthdays, holidays, and more, the Anthem Oak Block Set is as beautiful as it is functional. This magnificent set provides the tools any cook needs to make the time they spend in the kitchen not only efficient, but fun as well.
To assure our customers get the best knives available, all Rada blades are crafted from surgical-quality T420 high-carbon stainless steel for a lifetime of durability then hollow ground for incredible sharpness. Designed with frequent use in mind, non-serrated, hollow-ground blades can be easily re-sharpened to achieve a like-new blade again and again. For easy at-home sharpening, check out Rada’s Quick Edge Knife Sharpener. All blades in this set except the 8ʺ Anthem Bread Knife and Anthem Tomato Slicer can be sharpened.
The Anthem Wave handle has a distinctive raised wave pattern which feels good in your hand. The size is perfect for people who have larger hands or who simply like the grip and heft that these handles provide. Incredibly durable, the Anthem handles are built to last a lifetime and fit beautifully into any kitchen décor.
The Essential Oak Block is locally made, handcrafted of 100% solid red oak and allows you easy access to 13 knives—large and small. The block protects your knives’ blades, helping to extend the life of your cutlery, and it fits with any décor.
With the Anthem Cook's Knife (6½" blade, 12" overall), you can chop and mince vegetables and herbs like a pro, slice an ice cream cake, and cut through meat. A multi-tasker in a nice size.
Our Anthem 8" Bread Knife cuts its way through soft homemade loaves and crusty ciabatta bread, buns, English muffins, and quick breads while protecting them all from crumbling and squashing. Use it to slice angel food cake too!
The Anthem Slicer (7" blade, 11⅝" overall) is one of those knives that will let you do just about anything. From prime rib to cabbage and everything in between, this high-quality knife is an essential tool for every kitchen.
Rada's Anthem Tomato Slicer is our world-famous Tomato Slicer blade with the Anthem Wave handle. Its 5" dual-serrated blade allows you to make clean, straight cuts every time without squashing the tomatoes. Many other uses too.
The Anthem Heavy Duty Paring Knife has a 3¼" blade that cuts, slices, and cores easily. The nice-sized handle offers superior leverage, making all your cutting jobs a breeze, whether you’re prepping veggies or trimming meat.
The Anthem French Chef is about as multi-purpose as it gets! While it excels at smaller tasks like chopping herbs and mincing vegetables, its big 8½" blade cuts through just about anything. You can even use the flat side of the blade for smashing garlic and transferring chopped food to a pan.
The Anthem Super Parer truly is super! At 9" overall with a 4⅜" blade, it’s nice and big, ready to break down poultry or cut through even the toughest vegetables.
"Love the new Anthem handles. Even bought the steak knives to add in. Has a great feel in your hand. Overall great product very happy with my purchase."

PRODUCT WARRANTY The Lifetime Guarantee
A dull knife is a dangerous knife! Keep your blades sharp. When Rada’s high-quality non-serrated blades need sharpening, there’s no need for a professional knife-sharpening service. You can do it yourself in a matter of seconds with the modest but oh-so incredibly effective Quick Edge Knife Sharpener.
Rada recommends hand washing all fine cutlery. Hand washing prevents microscopic dings on a knife blade’s cutting edge, eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher’s high temperatures and abrasive detergents that will negatively affect its handle, and ultimately extends the life of the knife.
While Rada’s black handle knives and utensils are more dishwasher tolerant than the silver handles, hand washing is still recommended.
It boils down to this: When knives last a lifetime like Rada Cutlery knives do, you want them to remain in tip-top condition so you can enjoy them for a lifetime.
Since 1948, Rada Cutlery has been crafting knives that stand the test of time. The hand-sharpened, razor-sharp edge of the surgical-quality, T420 high-carbon stainless steel blade ensures that durability reaches our customers...for a lifetime of use.
Every one of our products is handcrafted in the heart of the USA, with materials only from America. Our strong heritage and Midwest values assure dependability you can believe in and sharp good looks you’ll be proud to have in your home.
Outstanding knives. Exceptional value. That’s the Rada way.
I love rada knives. That is all I use
Silver. Our silver permanently cast solid brushed aluminum handles with a satin finish were the “originals,” dating back to post-WWII (1948), when manufacturing of non-war-related products began in earnest.
Black. Our black handles are made from stainless steel resin and were introduced in 2007 to offer more choices to our customers. This handle is also more tolerant of dishwashers.
Anthem Wave. In 2019, another black handle was introduced. Called Anthem Wave, it has an ergonomic grip and is slightly longer and larger than our other handles, great for people who prefer a bigger handle.
The best way to care for all fine cutlery is to hand wash and then dry immediately. Hand washing eliminates the harsh environment created by a dishwasher’s high temperatures and abrasive detergents, prevents microscopic dings on the blades’ cutting edge, and helps protect your knives from corrosion, ultimately extending the life of their finish. Caring for your knives properly assures they’ll remain sharp and in great condition for a lifetime of use
Every Rada Cutlery product is 100% American made, from raw materials through construction. Always have been; always will be.
Our knives are crafted with surgical-quality high-carbon stainless steel and hand sharpened, giving every Rada knife a razor-sharp edge.
All non-serrated Rada knives can be easily resharpened when needed, to achieve a like-new blade again and again.
Every product manufactured by Rada Mfg. Co. is GUARANTEED FOR LIFE from defects in material or workmanship. Our craftsmanship is topnotch, meaning you’ll probably never need this guarantee, but if you do, we’ll be here for you to honor our promise.
Our products last. Families often pass their knives from generation to generation. The low price you’ll pay for that kind of quality is remarkable!
Hooray! All Rada knives (as well as the Quick Edge Knife Sharpener) and utensils can be used by either right- or left-handed users equally well. Our Cheese Knife has special features designed to work its best when held in the right hand. However, customers have told us they use the knife with their left hand without issue.
Every serrated Rada knife and “cutting utensil” is made using the BEST type of serration for its intended purpose. Non-serrated blades are hollow ground on both sides for ultimate cutting and slicing.
Simply grip the sharpener’s durable nylon base at the end furthest from the wheels with one hand and pull a knife blade between the wheels of the sharpener at a slight upward angle using the other hand; repeat four to six times. This works equally well whether you hold the sharpener with your left hand (logo is facing you for “righties”) or with your right hand (logo is facing away from you for “lefties”). Now, carefully wipe off the blade to remove any metal shavings and you’re done!
The secret is in the Quick Edge Knife Sharpener’s dual steel wheels, which intersect to sharpen both sides of a knife blade at the same time. The specially hardened, high-carbon stainless wheels ensure that blades reach their sharpest point with only a few passes
Rada Mfg. Co. has been manufacturing cutlery in the Midwest since 1948, selling more than 170 million knives since that time. Every product is 100% made in the USA, from raw materials all the way through construction.

Through the years, Rada has remained strong, with this goal at the forefront: providing outstanding knives at an exceptional value that everyone can afford. Because sharp knives shouldn’t be a luxury.
