Amazon has them for about $12 for the one I have (red handle, 1 inch wide and about 12 inches long including the handle) They also have some for like $8.95. Unfortunately, you may have to pay shipping unless you are buying a minimum dollar amount or they are running a special.
I found the exact one they had for $12 + 5.99 shipping at my local kitchen store for $12, so I snapped it up.
My old zester worked OK for citrus, but it just "juiced" fresh ginger and left a stringy mess on the blades.
But what do you expect for a $2.99 zester?
There are other online sites that have them too, but shipping will always be an issue with small purchases.
If you have a bunch of friends that like to cook (or need to cook), maybe you can all get together and put in a bigger order.
