  • 9

I'd like to get a feel of those knives but can't find any shop that has some in Montreal. Can you help?

      Correct website for L'Emouleur is, http://couteauxmontreal.com/index.html or http://www.montrealknife.com in English.

      Really good guy, very welcoming and passionate.

      1. Despres Laporte in Laval has them.

        L'Émouleur as described by mangoannie will have knives that are superior to the Shuns (some are priced better than the Shuns).

          Despres Laporte does indeed have a nice selection. Try the Global knives while you're there.

          I've never been to L'émouleur.

            Thanks for the Despres Laporte lead.

            L'Émouleur only have authentic japanese knives from 400 $, not my range for now. However you have to go there just to have a look at this amazing knives collection, they are beautiful.

          2. Just passed by Stark & Whyte in Brossard. They have Shun Premier series sale at 20% off. FYI

            1. PaulsFinest.com has an excellent selection. I've bought many knives from Paul. He has great prices and his service is excellent. Plus Paul is a local Montrealer. Go Paul!

                Paul's Finest is great for price and selection, but it's all mail order so you can't try the knives before buying. That's probably why no one here mentioned it.
