The Rada “Old Fashioned” Butcher knife is a great knife that proves some things never go out of style.


This is a knife that means business, with a 7 ¾-inch blade and a long, easy to grip handle. You won’t find a better knife for cutting, splitting, and stripping meat, as this large butcher knife features a hefty blade with a traditional butcher skinning tip. The stainless steel blade is hand sharpened for a razor edge, which make it not only ideal for use on meats, but large fruits and vegetables as well, such as thick-skinned pineapple, yams or cantaloupe.

Our customers agree that this is the best butcher knife they’ve ever used.

“This has to be the best knife for the big cutting jobs, in the kitchen! It cuts through anything with ease! Love Rada knives!” said a happy “Old Fashioned” user.

“I love it! Best knife I've ever bought! It cuts like a dream, it is absolute perfection! I love it!” said one thrilled customer.

“I have owned my knife for over 30 years and its still going strong, all I do is run it through the Rada sharpener a few times and its sharp as new. This is one of my first knives that my dad gave me and I've purchased several more over the years and they are all top notch, especially for the price. Made in USA and a value that cannot be beat,” raved another in a 5-star Amazon review.

Care Instructions
(Hand Wash VS Dishwasher)

Hand washing all fine cutlery is the preferred method of cleaning because:

  1. Hand washing prevents unnecessary microscopic dings on the blades' cutting edge.
  2. Recent government mandated changes to phosphate-free dish washing detergents creates a harsh environment for metals - including stainless steel blades and in particular our silver brushed aluminum handles.
  3. Dishwashers have evolved to higher temperatures for cleansing and drying that are incompatible with fine cutlery.

Some customers choose to use the dishwasher with varying results depending on their detergent, water mineral composition and dishwasher. The combination of these factors affect the pace and degree of oxidation experienced.
