Where to buy Shun Knives in Montreal?

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

    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.

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

        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.
