MAC knives in Alberta or BC

Does anyone know where these knives are sold in either Alberta or BC? I can't seem to locate a retailer.

  1. In Calgary, we have a few places that have carried, and probably still carry Mac Knives.
    -The Knifery in Chinook Center
    -Hendrix Restaurant Equipment and Supplies
    -Cookbook Co. on 11th Ave SW

    In Vancouver, I only know of Ming Wo in Chinatown carrying these.

    Personally, I love these knives. I don't know why there's such a huge hullaballoo about forged knives, since most of the time a quality stamped knife works for me - in fact, one of my favourite knife sets is at my parents: a lower-end stamped Henckel series. Generally they're easier for slicing than the traditional thicker French and German-style chef's knives.

    That's not to say I don't like forged knives; I still use them regularly - just that you can still get great stamped knives and usually at a lower price, since they're easier to manufacture.

    1. as can_i mentioned... Hendrix Equipment... They've got great deals on MAC knives, not to mention cookware in general.
