This is my first post but I've been reading here for a long time. I usually find what I'm looking for by doing a search but I thought it would be appropriate to tell my "found a knife" story as my first post.
About 4 years ago, I bought a vintage saxophone on Ebay and in the storage compartment of the case, there was a Kershaw Leek that looked to be new. Not a scratch on it. I felt lucky but thought that the seller might be missing his knife and returning it to the seller was the right thing to do (plus I'm not that crazy about Leeks anyway) so I contacted the seller to let him know about the knife in the storage compartment. His reply was, "Thank you but I have no idea what you are talking about. I don't own a knife and I certainly would not put it in the sax case". I never heard from him again and that's how I got my one and only Kershaw Leek. To this day I can't figure out how that knife might have found it's way into a saxophone case.
By the way.... Great info on this site and I have learned a lot from so many of you. Thanks.
