Fancy an all-metal set of knives? Tired of cheaply made knife sets made from crappy steel? Is made in America important to you? Not impressed with the cuts you get from "permanent edge" knives?

This set of Rada knives is made in Iowa, and has a knife or tool for almost any task the ordinary cook will face. It feels a little light in the hand at first because the handle is aluminum but the balance is right on. The handle also has a "brushed" finish which helps with the grip

I would definitely recommend this set, and also the "steel wheels" sharpener, which really simplifies a task I've always had difficulty with.

It is shipped in a box that is nice for gift giving and storage.

My husband loves to cook so I purchased this set of Rada (Made in USA) Knives for him. These are absolutely the best knives we've ever used. The Cook's Knife is our absolute favorite and Rada makes the sharpest and best veggie peeler I've ever seen. These knives are truly amazing to have such a low price point. Anyone who is a chef or who loves to cook would be amazed at the sharpness of these knives. Please be careful with them though, because they are like razor blades. I'm surprised the folks at the Food Network haven't talked about these knives.

The knives are very, very lightweight, but they do the job! The Rada Company is very impressive, to be able to make such a quality product at such a low price. It's also nice to buy a product that's actually Made in America instead of Made in China.

I own Henckels, Sabatier, Wusthof, Shun and Chicago Cutlery knives. They are all good but the best blade--up to now--was the Shun. That was up to now. Since buying the Rada knives, we simply don't use the others. The blades sharpen literally to a razor edge, they hold that edge and if they dull a little, they hone nicely and easily to recover their sharpness. I have not used the Rada sharpener, so I can't attest to how well it works. We use a sharpening steel, which works wonders. I simply can't believe the value of these knives! All of the others we own are top shelf, not the cheap consumer versions, and these blew them away. The German and Japanese knives each cost more than twice what this entire set cost. I feel like a fool for spending that kind of money on those knives. Why don't people know about this company? The knives are just amazing. We bought them because my wife had a Rada pairing knife inherited by her mother, which we loved but which was accidentally thrown away by a houseguest. When I went looking of an "aluminum handle" knife (I did not know the Rada name), I found these and they were so reasonably priced I bought a set. Best value purchase I have made in years. Try them and you won't believe it; you simply won't believe how fantastic these are.

I can't believe the superb quality of these knives. My first piece of Rada cutlery was the short bread knife, which I bought from an online retailer known for selling only the best cook's equipment. I did wonder, though, how a good knife could cost so little compared to the cost of the big-brand-name knives. Well, I was so impressed with the precision slices the bread knife made that I decided to buy from Amazon.com the 7-piece starter set, the 7-piece starter set part 2, the French chef's knife, the chef's dicer, the carver boner, the large bread knife, and the sharpener. Now my whole kitchen is Rada knives, and I have every knife I ever need. Rada knives are the only ones I use now. The knives are extremely sharp and cut with precision. (I have cut myself a couple of times as I get accustomed to the sharpness.) They are light but feel solid in the hand. The brushed aluminum handles give a good grip and look good, too. I also like that they are made in the USA. This is the best purchase I have made in a long time!

I review knives regularly, and I fully admit that I wouldn't have chosen RADA knives, but this set was a highly regarded gift and I will give them a whirl! At first glance, I'm taken aback by RADA's simplicity and sharpness. After all this says "Starter Set" so, they look kinda thrifty and plain (not for snooty folks??). However, the blades have a nice shine to them, and are of timeless design; the edges are very sharp (sharper than you'd expect at this price-point). There is a small RADA logo stamped on each blade and these knives have a good, but somewhat light weight to them. If you're a person who loves to cook, and keep your knives hidden out of sight (and reach of children), these are perfect for the you and the value minded shopper. In fact, they'll likely perform as good/better than anything you've got. They are a perfomance value (drive and feel like a Mercedes, but don't look it). RADA will be great for abusive cooks, or those who don't want to baby an expensive set, or want to hand-wash their cutlery. Also, this would make a good back-up set; especially if you do a lot of entertaining or group cooking. Heck, buy two sets for that reason. I chopped up a salad with these, and I was very impressed.. these things cut like butter. My wife said the peeler was out of this world.

Ok - the handles could be better and the appearance could be improved. The Chef's knife could be thicker for more control/stability and it would also be nice if you had a block option, or set option which included the block and steak knives. Or, maybe RADA could come out with a professional series etc..
