    The lost knife thread

    Well some of you may know I've recently got a kershaw leek. Well that left me with a ka bar dozier to find a new use for. Thus the ka bar became my work knife. Well thanks to rules and regulations at my job I had to have it just floating in my pocket.

    So I believe while doing errands with my wife after work. My keys caught the dozier and pulled it out of my pocket. I, not realizing this am down a ka bar dozier, in need of a new work only knife and am up one economical lesson.

    What is you're lost knife story?

    There ain't a knife been made that I can't lose! Honestly, I've been lucky, I rarely lose a knife, but it has happened. Most of my daily carry pocket knives are $20.00 Bucks and such. I'm saving up to get an expensive one before I start losing 'em!

    I lost a knife for a couple weeks. The knife was missing long enough for me to order another one.
    I kept my Ken Onion Blur clipped to my rear pocket. It was Winter or close to it, so I was rotating between two jackets depending on the temp. Somehow I managed to clip my knife to the strap on the one jacket. It was one of those jackets with two straps to tighten or loosen the waist.
    One day I was sitting on the chair in the porch, putting my shoes on and happened to look up at the coat rack and there it was, dangling from that strap. I can only hope I had been wearing the heavier jacket by that time and not the one with a knife dangling from it...

    Lost two Swiss Army Pioneers. The first was after going two out of three falls with Jim Beam, (I lost). The second is somewhere under one of the rides at Cedar Point. Third's the charm, I've had it for 20+ years so far, but I don't get out much these days.

    Lost a really nice Schrade I used for working a long time ago. Was depressing at the time. I had used it for many years before loosing it.

    I've never lost a knife but I have had two different Buck knives stolen on two different occasions when I was a teen. First one was during gym class. I had a nice little Buck companion that someone stole out of my locker. It had to be someone who knew me well as I always put the little guy in my shoes so I wouldn't lose it.

    Second one was same year. We were stating with my grand parents and was going on a church activity. We were loading up teens at my grandparents (their house was on church property as grandfather was the pastor). One of the teen guys at the very last minute had to run in and do something. That evening when we got home my Buck 110 was gone. I knew what happened but had no proof. I can't stand thieves.

    Out of college I used to ride my bike 10miles to work everyday. One day my CRKT M-16 fell out of my pocket somewhere along the way. It had custom ebony scales I had made to replace the plastic. C'est la vie

    Anyway I just got a new Otanashi Noh Ken and I'm not gonna let this puppy slip away.

    Every time I want to pick up a nice "expensive" knife I don't because I lose a pocket knife about once every 18 months. It's always at work and it might be because I am in and out of my car about 25 times a day, one stop its there and a few stops it's gone. I am thinking a fixed blade in a good holster might be the answer.
    Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.....well, I have others.

    The bottom one is my everyday carry. I lost it in the snow cutting open bales of hay and was sick over it. I am one of those that gets attached to an inanimate object I don't know why. I ordered another one and just as I was going to put it into service we had a thaw and there was my old girl so the new one resides in the holster drawer for now.

    Lost my Kershaw 3880 Thermite Folding Knife at work a few months back :(. Not an expensive knife, but it was mine and I hate losing anything out of my collection.

    Well, not actually "lost", but I got a great deal on a Browning folder from Midway last year. I showed it to the wife and she put in in her purse(!)
    I bought 3 more and the stepson and stepdaughter liked them, leaving me 1. A co-worker lost his...so...

    I gotta get a knife!

    So I had a CRKT M16-10KZ. It was the one I carried daily. I got home from work and I remember it was clipped to my pocket before I left work... It wasn't there... I went into the office and searched high & low. I searched my car... No luck...

    I ordered a Gerber 06 FAST Tanto to replace it... The day after the Gerber arrived from Amazon I was driving & had to nail the brakes & the CRKT came sliding out from under the seat... My wife is convinced I lost it on purpose...

    Received a sweet custom folder for a birthday gift. Was deer hunting with it floating in my pants pocket. Started the day with it. Ended the day without it. Never saw it again.

    I actually hung a gerber parabellum from a nub of a small tree while I was cutting some cord to repair a shoe lace and just walked off and left it.
