4 or 5 purchases so far. Each one was fast delivered and no issues.
To all my requests for additional information were answered quickly, friendly and professional.
So, I warmly recommend.
Twice I bought knives from Paul's Finest. He has the best prices and I was amazed to have them delivered in a few days.
It was my first time ordering from Paul's finest as I was looking for a set of sharpening stones for woodworking tools.
The items were quick to ship and arrived package well with no damage.
Will order from Paul again for my sharpening needs!
Cheaper than Amazon, fast shipping, great selection. Product descriptions are always detailed and accurate. The items arrived in flawless condition and have performed no less than perfectly. I will definitely be ordering again, and sending any friends or family in need of better knives straight to this great website.
I looked everywhere for a place that had all of the items I wanted....
Paul's was the only place that had the Naniwa and Shapton stones I wanted in one place.
I previously purchased a stone from another place and they sent it to me in an envelope... broken....
Paul's had the items properly packed and everything arrived in perfect condition.
Also, it was the only place I could find the Naniwa 1000/3000 splash 'n' go stone.
I will definitely be recommending and shopping here again!
Purchased from Pauls Finest numerous times. Always great service, never an issue. My go to for anything knife related.
Thanks for a pleasant transaction.
Good service and fast shipping
Even when you live in the sticks
I have been buying from Paul’s finest for many years. In the past they were the only place to acquire some unique and cool products otherwise not available in Canada.
Service has always been very good, shipping fast, products top notch and the best is they are a committed small business. Keep rocking!!!
I ordered a 6000 grit naniwa traditional whetstone and it was exactly as I hoped. Shipped was fast and easy and it gave my knives a razor sharp polished edge. Great communication and customer service from the owner Paul. Would order again!
I had been looking at YouTube videos on knife sharpening for a while. I really wasn't happy with my Lee Valley Water Stones and wanted to see what else was on the market.
So I came across Burrfection. The guy who operates the channel is very knowledgeable and does a lot of stone comparisons, tutorials etc.
This is how I learned about Shapton Glass Stones. So I looked on Amazon knowing these things are not cheap.
I already knew I wanted 320 grit to bring back edges on my friends' kitchen knives (mine too) and at 1000 grit to really bring on a nice edge.
Amazon didn't offer the 1000 grit however I did a further search and came across Pauls Finest. What a wonderful surprise!
Here is a comparison.
All Shapton Glass, Identical Product, Canadian $
320 Grit $123 Amazon $59 Pauls
1000 Grit $N/A Amazon $70 Pauls
4000 Grit $148 Amazon $86 Pauls
The numbers speak for themselves.
Ordered the 320 & 1000 first, loved the performance, and subsequently ordered the 4000 on the advice of Burrfection as being about as good as one could ever really want for kitchen knives.
The 4000 hasn't arrived yet but I am sure it will be awesome. The performance of my first two stones is simply outstanding.
Notification of shipment came FAST, Tracking was perfect and delivery was prompt.
Somehow, the inner sleeve of one of my stones was missing or I lost it (no idea how) so I emailed about it and Paul himself quickly responded.
He said this was the first time such a thing has happened, then offered to send a sleeve from his personal collection of stones.
I wrote back that his offer was too generous and not to bother, however, I am betting there will be a sleeve coming with my 4000 due any day now.
Paul just seems to be that kind of guy!
Note: Pauls Finest is in Canada and only ships to Canadian addresses.
If I decide to go for an 8000 grit stone, it will be from Paul. All of yours should as well!!!
I've been a loyal customer for a number of years now. and many more to come. Service is VERY fast, and I get a kick out of Paul's packaging. Items arrive as if they were packaged at Fort Knox. Prices are VERY competitive, and Paul always seems to have precisely what I need. A-1+ for me.
Quick and easy to deal with. Very satisfied with the customer service!
My materials arrived really fast and with no issues. I will definitely order again.
As a first time shopper, I feel the need to highlight PaulsFinest as I was truly very pleasantly surprised with the entire ordering process. With the serious lack of high quality knife and cutlery suppliers in Canada I cannot stress enough that these guys deserve your support and business. It was refreshing to not have to deal with the typical excessive price mark ups and the service was top notch. Super easy to order and excellent communication with shipping updates - items arrived ahead of schedule as well. Ordered some lower end products this time for a starter kitchen, but will definitely been looking at their selection of Japanese knives in the near future.
Which does bring me to my only complaint, being that I wish they did have a bit more selection in their inventory - different brands and makers - but hopefully continuing to spread the word of their top notch service and excellent pricing, will help them to grow.
Again, I cannot stress how excellent my first time client experience has been. Pricing, service and shipping times are unbeatable compared to what I have experienced in the past ordering within Canada or from the US. If they have the product I am looking for, I will look no further than ordering from PaulsFinest!
I've purchased from Paul's Finest a number of times and have always been impressed. Great prices, quick delivery and always very responsive to questions. Will definitely buy from Paul's Finest again.
Only the best ... thanks !
Pauls my go to store for sharpening products with a great selection, competitive prices and prompt shipping.
I placed my first order with Paul's and before I knew it my order had been fulfilled and sent out. I was so impressed I sent an email saying so. My order was packaged well and with care. I would love to see Paul's increase their Wusthof product line to include more kitchen tools. Thank you for providing great service and I look forward to ordering more products from you!
Prices are responsible and good.
Great communication and quick shipping. Highly recommend!
Excellent experience from the initial order, through the status of the shipment to receiving the products. Would highly recommend Paul’s Finest Knives!
I purchased a set of Wusthof knives from a local seller about 10 years ago. Since then I've ordered two Wusthof products from PaulsFinest, a pair of scissors about 6 months ago (lost the original) and a 6" utility knife (handle broke) a week ago. I was very satisfied with both purchases. The items were shipped very quickly and were received in perfect condition. I am so very happy to have a source for Wusthof knives in Canada, and especially from a seller that is easy to purchase from, fast, and reasonably priced. I am thinking of starting my kids out with some Wusthof knives and will definitely buy them from PaulsFinest. Keep up the good work!
I've been buying from Paul for almost 15 years both for myself and when shopping for others. I'd rather give my business to Paul and supporting a small Canadian business rather than buying from Amazon. Plus Paul often has better selection. Just shoot him an email if you have any questions or concerns and he responds promptly with great advice. Excellent packing on the shipping parcels too!
