Hi Paul, I got the charger today! Surprised me! Much faster than i thought! The charger is great! Thank you!
I just received my Wenger EvoGrip S557 and it is amazing! The knives, little saw and scissors are incredibly sharp. Just love it. Paul is an excellent resource if you are needing knives (for example). I have bought from him before and will again. Great prices and super fast delivery. thanks again Paul, regards, m
Paul, I was absolutely blown away by your commitment to customer service and professionalism in business. Everything was completed quickly and efficiently, including the shipping (which does not happen very often when purchasing items online). I will be sure to recommend your services to anyone searching for what you have to offer! Thanks again.
I purchased a 9''Wustoff Classic Ikon chef knife. I'm impressed! the blade stays sharp and the shape of it is good for everything from splitting squash, to fine dicing shallots. It makes mundane tasks like dicing up mirepoix much easier. all in all I think this knife rocks!
I won't bother telling you how great Wusthof knives are, you probably already know. But the service! I placed an on-line order (from Toronto) April 7th at 11:00am and had my knife when I came home from work the next day. Now that's fast. (I guess Canada Post deserves some of the credit, but still...)
I ordered a Maha battery charger from Paul and after incredibly quick delivery, fired it up to charge the D cells that I had also bought from Paul. The charger would not bring these cells to full charge. To make a very long story short, Paul replaced the charger, the batteries, worked with Maha and finally determined that Maha's claims for that particular charger were mistaken. Paul replaced the charger with another model, with no additional cost and went out of his way to make my case with Maha. It's great to see that excellent customer service is still offered by a Canadian seller. Thanks, Paul. I'll be back.
Put my order the 7 just got my knifves on the 10 ..... Really impressed , thanks a lot paul ! Nice packaging and every is perfect ! Really good job , i will order from you again !
After some effort to dispel the lingering myths from the 1980's about rechargeable batteries, I bought a MH-C204W charger for the office. It is so simple and reliable that even my most technically-challenged co-workers have no problem. I plan to eventually replace all disposable AA and AAA batteries in my department with rechargeable. We're going to save bundles of money for sure. Thanks again, Paul, for the great products, reasonable prices and speedy service.
Paul Many thanks. My wife complained one day about her "crappy knives" which she had for years and hated for years. So, I went on line and ordered from you. She was skeptical when I told her that I had ordered knives, but in the end was extremely happy with the selection. For anyone looking for a great gift to give, order a couple of great knives, the recipient will thank you for years. Delivered without a hitch. Thanks. Dirk
Your service is excellent.I ordered the Wusthof Classic Ikon Santoku knife.It arrived in 4 days.Very professional product from a very professional supplier.Thankyou Rob.
I would have to say that Paul's product knowledge is second to none. I'm a stickler for research and I truly believe that the Misono UX-10 series should be regarded as a top choice among industry professionals. I too work with the UX-10 Santoku and it has truly been my best kitchen tool purchase to date. Thank you for a superior product and service !!
I ordered my powerex batteries and charger on Monday and I received both on Thursday. Super fast shipping! Thanks Paul! I look forward to dealing with you again.
Bought the Maha C9000 charger from Paul. It is AMAZING. I am a professional photographer and carry about 40AA rechargeable batteries with me to each shoot. After a season of use, battery performance dropped significantly. I was just about to buy a new set of 40AA for about $150 and throw out the old ones, but then I thought I'd give this charger a try. WOW! This charger restored factory performance on ALL of them, it's like they are brand new! Buying this charger SAVED ME almost $100! And as a bonus, prevented 40 batteries from becoming environmentally bad waste. It's so awesome I bought two. And Paul is the epitome of the "Finest" customer service around. I expressed concern that Canada Post delivered my EXPRESS order significantly late. Paul contacted CP, got a refund for the shipping, and mailed me a cheque for the shipping charge. Paul is an absolute gem in this age of poor, infuriating customer service. I thank you for all your help!
I just purchased a Mighty Mac 9.5" Chef knife from Paul. I live in Montreal and therefore was able to pick-up the item and save on the handling (10 minutes from downtown). I shopped around and his prices were 35-50% cheaper than any store in the city. I plan on purchasing one knife ever few months or so. Very happy.
Thanx Paul!!! Got the charger(MH-C808M) and the batteries I`ve been dealing with batteries and chargers for many years for RC stuff and this is one of the best chargers I`ve ever seen. Can`t beleive ve you got me my charger and the batteries, in 2-days, before christmas!!(including ordering and delivery!!!)at your busiest time of year Your site rocks! everything you say and more! Best of luck I will definately be back for more
Paul, The Misono UX10 knives I ordered arrived today. Thanks for the fast shipping. I opened the box and could not believe my eyes, These knives are absolutely amazing. The craftsmanship is second to none. I absolutely love them, and will definitely be ordering more. They are worth every penny and then some. Thanks so much!!
Paul and his Company have the unique combination of old fashioned values, authentic salesmanship, a devotion to each and every cusomer and the SPEEDIEST service on the planet ! This is something that we , the consumer , need / should to return to .....as Paul practices the time honoured tradition of passion for all the products he sells. Thank you again Paul for all that you do ... a second order in as many weeks . Peace .... Dani
Received my order yesterday. Excellent service and fast shipping. The knives were to be a gift but "I am in love" (they are just beautiful- especially the MAC ). Needless to say I cannot part with them , so I am placing another order in today and I am sure it will not be my last. Thankyou!! Shannon-Ottawa
I had such a great experience as a first time buyer here at Pauls Finest. Paul stocks great products which are harder to find elsewhere and his prices are better than stores that do stock items found on this site. Customer service is also top notch and the personal touch is great. I will definitely be returning soon.
Hi Paul: This is not a testimonial but just a thank you for finding a way to carry the Mac knives again. Apparently the Canadian distributors don't like to ship to their retail outlets either. I ordered a knife from a local store over a month ago and I am still getting the run around regarding shipping. The store owner, has called the dealer right in front of me with promises of delivery right away. The last time I was in was Friday, November 30 and I was promissed the knife by Tuesday. It has not arrived. Unfortunately this store is loosing a sale. I don't like to do that because she has a wonderful store and it isn't for her lack of trying. I bought my first Mac from you and was extremely happy with the service. I am now buying for my son who loves my knife and loves to cook. I like to encourage that in a man!! Again, many thanks. Chris Moore
My purchase resulted in the best online experience I have ever had. Customer service was excellent and shipping was very fast.
Hi Paul! My order arrived quite a while ago in the usual fine condition from your origin. And all the products live up to and beyond expectations. Your recommendations were very helpful. The two little Maha NiMH AAAs rated at 1000 mAh were charge formed in the Maha C9000 to 939 mAh and 917 mAh. Quite excellent for a first charge. The Misono Moly 5¼" utility knife outperformed the blade it replaced in all respects. I will be getting more Misono steel. The Chef's Choice diamond sharpener has been phenomenal in putting fine edges on both quality and junk knives. The latter won't retain the keen edge for long but it is handy to use up lesser quality blades with quick resharpening.
Hello, : It was such a pleasure to locate Paul's Finest and even a further pleasure to do business with him. I was searching for "moustache scissors" for my husband , not an easy find . I had no idea where to start looking , what was a good price and so on. After doing some research on the Internet and phoning around town, I quickly began to realize that I wanted Wusthof as the brand. Sales people in the shops/ malls did not really understand what I wanted nor were they interested or invested in the product...... a sad fact of life today ... AND they couldn't explain the beauty of these scissors. In the past, I have sent people e-mails asking questions , on ebay, other companies etc., some would reply , some not, some did not want to be involved with the extra shipping / paperwork. THEN I found Paul's site .....there was no turning back . Paul was willing to go the extra kilometer / mile , he answered promply and provided all the information that I needed to make my desision . It was a breath of fresh air in an environment full of poor salesmanship and people who are not passionate about what they sell and use. Paul was extremely professional , principled, and absolutely responsible ...., my scissors arrived so quickly it was hard to believe !! They were VERY well priced and packaged . Most people do not pay a lot of attention to packaging , I do as I used to ship candles, so I know when someone has taken the proper time for me. Also , I believe it is very important for the consumer to support a business like Paul's ,as he says "best products, at Canada's best prices " we as Canadians need to be mindful of who we are supporting. There is no doubt in my mind that I would highly recommend Paul as he practices values in his company that I as a consumer am now looking for . He is not just selling knives or scissors, he has a passionate purpose. Paul was a joy to do business with and I wish him all the best in his future endeavours . p.s. even though we were thousands of miles apart , it felt like he was across town..thanks again Dani
I was having no luck finding a bread knife that could handle the crusts of the hearth breads I bake in my wood fired brick oven. Paul of Paul’s Finest knew the problem and had just the right Wusthof knife for me [Wusthof Gourmet Serrated Super Slicer, #4517] at a fine price. Now, thick or thin, I get the perfect slice every time. The service was quick and courteous.
I recently bought two knives and a scale from Paul. I purchased the Misono UX10 santuko knife and couldn't be happier. I also purchased the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu 10" french knife for a friend. I'm a professional cook with a backround in engineering and manual labour, so I have an appreciation for workmanship and quality. I've put many a tool through tests of endurance that truly test their mettle. The UX10 is what I expected and more. After i used a sandstone to put my own blade road and edge to the knife, I've never dealt with something this sharp before! I've already dropped it tip down on a tile floor, and cut through the bones of farm-raised guinea hen without damage to the blade (even after i put a super-thin edge on it). Peeling super-hard squash skin it did effortlessly without feeling stress in the blade. Paul was amazing to deal with. Very friendly and helpful. I picked up my product in person and in conversation discovered that he is excited and passionate about food, baking in particular. Deals honestly with people and offers quality product which is a sigh of relief these days. I'll definately be a return customer. Looking forward to those pizza stones you plan to get in Paul!
Excellent service, and fast shipping, my friend beat me to the review, I recommended the Maha charger to him since we have a lot of electronics, besides he who dies with the most toys wins, and this is a BIG winner.
Thanks Paul for the excellent products and fast shipping.. I am joining a cooking club called Les Marmitons and am looking forward to using my new knives!
Great service. My neighbour reccommended me to your site after he bought a maha charger with batteries. I recently bought a new dig camera which uses 4 AA ,so I was in the market for a charger. I bought the c8oos, and ordered it on a sunday and was shipped out by monday. At first I thought it was too much to spend on a charger but after reading what you said about nimh batteries and their issues, this is money well spent. Thanks for the great service Paul. SRM
I can't say enough about the excellent service I received from Paul. My Maha charger arrived in Halifax in less than two days! I was provided with a tracking# and I received several updates from Canada Post as to its location. It arrived well packaged and in good working order. I'm in the customer service industry myself and I must say, this is how I would run my own business if I chose to have one. Well done Paul! I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
Amazing fast shipping. Ordered before midnight, sent the next day and received in 2 days(Ontario). The Wusthof knives have been working great! Thanks.
A belated note of appreciation for prompt service and sound shipping of good products. The C9000 was promptly put to work breaking in the dozen Maha 2700s. (My Nikon cameras both take six-pack AA cells) and after that reconditioning a dozen Optex 2500s starting their 3rd year of service, now as backups (still averaging between 1600 and 1800 mAh) as well as NiMHs for the electronic flashes. The PowerEx charger does a better job and leaves me with a far better understanding of the precise state of my rechargeables, as attested by the 11 older cells in the disposal bag. I especially appreciate the eight-cell PowerEx case enclosed with the order. It is more handy for the six-cell B-set backup for my primary camera, than two four-cell cases. I've been keeping my friend [...] in Edmonton up-to-date on the C9000's performance, and you will likely see an order from him one of these days. [...] He was also impressed with your site and your knives. In appreciation, Erik.
Thanks for the Wusthof chef's knife and sharpening steel, Paul. All arrived safely and extremely quickly. Cooking - especially the challenge of getting through my weekly organic vegetable half-basket - just got a lot more attractive! Super service, I will recommend you when I get the chance.
Paul, thankyou for the speedy delivery. I just want to say, The Masahrio virgin carbon steel has proved to be a much better knife than I ever expected. The feel is very soild, yet light weight and, balanced. The edge holds beautifully after two weeks or full time kitchen grinding and must I add is also much easier to sharpen compared to the VG-10 gold Kasumi knives I use to own. This knife easily out performs all stainless steel and matches the preformance of knives double the price. As much work as it is to keep carbon steel clean and dry at all times, the results are well worth it. An excellent value knive I recommend to all professionals with clean discpline work habits.
Maha charger set was ordered on Sunday, arrived on Tuesday, in use by Thursday. Great product, great service, will use again soon! Highly recommended!
When I first placed my knife order quite some time ago, I was very impressed with the quick and helpful replies and the speedy delivery. I needed some cusotmer care assistance today, and I have NEVER been so impressed with the service I was given. Paul's Finest is a stellar vendor and I will be recommending his site to friends and family. Thank you, we will be back!
Hi Paul, thank you for coming through when I needed fast service. Delivery was fast and this Salter 6055 scale is the exact product I have been looking for but could not find locally in any of our Toronto stores. Keep up the excellent work and your attention to those small details which makes Paul’s Finest our preferred place to shop. Regards Roborganic
Thanks Paul!!! I received my 10' Wusthof Chef Knife very fast and it is a beauty!!! Thanks again, this service left a good taste in my mouth!!
I recently did a lot of research looking for the perfect Santoku knife. After being ignored at my local knife shop, I decided to shop online. I found exactly what I wanted at Pauls Finest, at a price much lower than the knife shop. And it was delivered in 5 days! Thanks Paul! I will be a repeat customer.
Hi Paul: Both items arrived promptly, and I love my new block and fillet knife! What a great way to shop. Thank you for the excellent service.
Hi! Just wanted to let you know that the batteries and charger are working great! Those 2700mAh Maha batteries are amazing!
If memory serves me correctly, this is the 3rd time that I've bought batteries from you. I can't say enough how much I like the Maha batteries and your great prices. In the past year along, I must have recommended at least 20-25 people to buy their batteries through you. [...] Given the hassle-free purchases, great prices and fantastic products, it's hard not to recommend your business.
Bonjour Paul; Juste un petit mot pour vous remercier pour la qualité de votre service. Après de vaines recherches sur Internet pour trouver la mandoline Borner V-3000, je suis tombée par hasard sur votre site. J'ai passé la commande et en moins de 48 heures je recevais le colis. Le tout est impeccable et fonctionne à merveille. C'est sans aucune hésitation que je recommanderai votre entreprise.
Hi Paul, Just wanted to thank you for your superb customer service! The foot paddle I ordered Sunday evening arrived this morning (Tuesday). [...] I certainly won't hesitate to pass along your website to others - good prices, excellent customer service; who could ask for anything more? Thanks again.
Paul, thanks for your speedy delivery - everything's arrived intact and I've put the Chef's Choice knife sharpener to quick use with GREAT results. Thanks again for your online recommendations - I never would have found this wonderful machine without your research and endorsement.
Paul, I have just received my order and I must tell you how much I am pleased and satisfied with your no-nonsense web-ordering service. Your ordering process is simply beautiful. Your shipping is super-fast and I am soooooooooooooooooo impressed by the quality of this Maha charger, wow! Please keep providing quality top-of-the-line products. Once again, I want to say a nice big west coast thank you for a super-dooper internet shopping experience. I wish many more web merchants would take an example out of your site! I have dealt with many bad places before and they certainly don't see the color of my money anymore.
Dear Paul, The Wüsthof Culinar knives and stand arrived this morning. I am absolutely thrilled with how they look and how they feel in my hands. The sizing and shape is perfect for me. Now I'm finally experiencing the Wüsthof quality I have heard about for years. Using them today has been an absolute pleasure, and I love how they look in the stand. This set is going to turn eyes :-) Thank you again for your great service and super products.
Just got my pepper mill today [Peugeot], a short time after ordering. Thank you for the great service. I tested it, and it works better than I had hoped. I am no chef, I just like cooking for myself, but I do relish the flavour of freshly ground pepper, and now I won't have to grind and grind until the food gets cold to get my pepper satisfaction.
Hi Paul, Mail arrived this morning at 9:15. Package received ok. I thank you for your quick delivery system. You get a 5 Star rating from me. Testing it out [Taylor 9305 Thermometer]. Infrared was instant. Probe has 4-5 seconds for final readout. Not instant but it is faster than my other 2 thermometers (25-30 seconds). Thanks again Paul. Will watch for new items on your site and will pass the addy around.
Hi Paul, I thought this might tickle your fancy, though I'm sure you get plenty of these comments. (This quote is part of an email I sent to a friend.) "The only place to get the latest batteries in Ontario is in....Quebec! For two weeks I called every photo, hobby, and paintball place from Whitby to Hamilton to Newmarket and was amazed that what I read on the 'net was true. You can't get the newest batteries and chargers anywhere, for any brand. The stuff sold in the stores are older models sold at the same price (or higher) than what you will pay online for the latest gear." [...] The C401FS charger and the batteries are wonderful. It's almost stressful when the [camera] batteries last so long - I can't quite get used to it. The "spare" batteries have now been permanently assigned to other devices. Even my super-cynical friend, who calls you the "Ginsu knife guy", decided he now needs the WizardOne. Thanks for excellent service and an excellent product, at an excellent price.
I'm sorry to find out that you don't ship to the United States. I do love your website though, and upon your recommendation, recently purchased a Misono Molybdenum 180mm Santoku knife, and couldn't be happier. It cuts everything with ease, and is a pleasure to hold and to use. So I'm sorry I couldn't purchase it from you, but thank you so much for the great recommendation and all the useful info you put on your site! [...] Yes, that Misono is a great knife. I wouldn't have had the confidence to go with the lower priced Molybdenum line if you hadn't given it such high praise. I don't have the UX-10 to compare it to, but from my use of it so far, it is an excellent knife, and seems like a very high quality instrument. There's no other website I've seen that talks about the differences between knife brands or between different lines of a particular brand the way your site does. Other sites just give what sounds like a company PR line about the knives, not any sort of comparison or evaluation.
