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.
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.
