I've ordered a few items over the years from Paul's Finest and the service has been top notch and speedy. This is one of my go-to sites before any others. Prices are amazing for many products and yes, no duty, shipping or exchange rate worries like ordering from U.S. sites. This latest purchase, the Misono UX10 Santoku is one amazing knife. Light, sharp, refined, it is the best santoku I've ever used. No wonder America's Test Kitchen rated it as the #1 santoku in their tests. This is a serious blade that goes through anything and worth spending a bit extra on. Also no rust worries like those high carbon knives. The fit and finish of this blade is the best I've seen. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen it is worth getting good tools. This receives my highest recommendation.
