    I would buy ZT(or Kershaw with the better steels like S30V). It would be nice to get some into the store - even the blemished items are nice. I bought a couple of the Bokers; I love the designs by Chad but I would have been so much happier if build quality were higher.

    I have to be careful what I do buy. I tried Bokers before but ended up with items that sat for a year. I buy inventory basically by gambling the server and rent money to do it. Some will ask why I do it but if the money just sets it vanishes month by month so I have to risk it by putting it to work.

    I could try Bokers again but the last experience stressed the forums finances. Anything that the forum is capable of turning over helps, if it sets it puts us in danger. Just trying to get a feel for what will work.

    Jon, I don't think ZT or Bokers is a good idea.

    Reason is, they are pretty commonly available everywhere, I even manage to buy one locally in australia. I think you will get some sales on popular items (subcom for boker, god knows what for ZT, 350 perhaps), but carry full inventory of those does not strike me as a brilliant idea.

    That said, I'd buy a boker from you if you had one, but for completely different reason I buy bark rivers from this forum.

    Now, if we get a bit dreamy, how about carrying inventory of busses? :)

    I dumped a buinch of Bokers at below cost that had been setting on for more than a year. I think I manged to sell three in a year and two of them was a moderator. The Boker's didn't work out well for me at all.

    I will need to come up with something else.

    The only way I can afford a ZT knife is if it was heavily discounted , I found a guy that will sell me an 0302 for $187 shipped.
    Do you happen to have a link to the ZT Tank?

    this is just my 2cents. the ZT0350 is the greatest knife i've ever owned. I haven't found anything that beats it!!!

    You really need to tell what other knives you have experienced for that statement to make impact.

    But I do agree that ZT makes great knives, pretty much all of them.
