Oh seriously? Damn...I just bought my first one off eBay for $160, the blue model, brand new, never opened. I was thinking MAYBE I'd come buy one directly. But I wanted the black model now, so I guess it's back to eBay for me. I need to watch for the black one and for a grey/bronze so I can swap out the stonewashed blade for a satin finish and make the perfect blue model.
