Maybe, but if i were you, i'd take one of these (post what you would keep in a post below)
Anyways, i'm still considering this. This knife would push me into the $800+ range for what i've spent on knives this month... and i know i have more stuff on the way. Its funny... i'm pretty sure i spend more now on my knives and stones than i ever did before.
You could do a middle of the road approach. Have it available for sale, but if all 5 aren't sold by 12/23, you're snagging one...
Keep one. You own the shop, you buy the knives, so you should be the first to use one and try it out extensively. Maybe you'll use it for a while and notice something about it you don't like that you could have changed for the next ones. Better you notice it first. And if the knife is totally awesome you'll know firsthand that you need to buy more the next time and they'll sell very well
Keep it, then sell it to me when I get back to L.A.
