    I am looking to buy a new Mac knife but I've moved and there is no dealer in my area. I am wondering if anyone has heard of or dealt with this online dealer before OnlyBestKnives.com

    Is there is another dealer I should consider?

    thanks for the input

    thanks everyone... looks like chefknivestogo.com is the place. Mac direct wants 30% more money than anyone else for the knife i want... and the website i originally mentioned seems sketchy to be honest.

    again ... thanks for the help

    Good luck with your purchase! As f or the pricing difference I'm not sure if MAC Knife USA posted prices are what they sell at or just MSRP.

    Save 5% by using the coupon code 'knifeforumsdiscount' at checkout at CKTG.

    You're welcome. The owner, Mark, posts over on another forum and has that coupon code on his sig block. He's a great guy to do business with, so if you have any questions, call or email him.

    He's also got a special discount coupon for FoodieForums members, too.  I always check first at CKtG when I'm gonna buy a knife.  He's the best vendor out there IMO./img/vbsmilies/smilies/thumb.gif

    FWIW, you will get the same discount from Chef's Knives 2 Go using the code:  foodieforumsdiscount 

    The MAC Pro is an extremely good knife.  Enjoy it well.

    He should consider a code for this site, too.  I should invite him to drop by here sometime.  Having different codes is probably a good way to see where more referrals and customers are coming from.
