I ordered a MOD Scorpion the other day. I got it in the mail and fell in love with it. I used it for everything I could think of. I just moved into my new apartment yesterday, and I was using the Scorpion to cut twine and I left it sitting on the side of my truck. When did I notice I left if sitting there you ask? Well, I was 10 mile down the road. Sucks huh. I don't know why I didn't remember. I must be an idiot. I went back and it was gone.

Not stupid, just busy.
I have found that when I am really in a hurry or have a lot on my mind I am more likely to loose something or mess something up.
I have a routine that when I have been using my knives in the wilderness I always double check for them before moving to another campsite.
When I'm in the city I always check for them after I know I have recently used them.

Sorry about your knife, yes it does suck.

I feel your pain my fellow knifeknut.:(

Most of us have all done this at one time or another, just not with a knife, thankfully.

On a side note- When I was stationed in the UK I left a newly purchased case of "Michelob" bottles on the roof of my car, drove off base , past the SP's (that's for you :p ) and another 5 miles all the way home. And guess what? It was still there in the same place I left it!!:D
That sure did explain the strange looks that I was receiving on the ride home.

Go figure!?!?! I got lucky with that one.

I hope that you go out tomorrow and find your knife lying on the bumper. You just never know.

Been there and done it. I have lost knives in my house before! Right now I am missing a Spyderco Dragonfly. It is eating me alive that I cant find it.

About 11 years ago I lost a Leatherman PST that was given to me. I loved that tool. Carried and used it daily. We were flat broke and I didn't even dare think of just going out and replacing it. I was in the service, we had 2 small children and were on WIC (Yeah, serving your country and on assistance). I went to hardware store to get a new screen and left the tool on the roof and it fell off. I had the biggest temper tantrum. I look for hours. I yelled, I screamed and I couldn't find it. I was really bummed out.

The next patrol I called my wife from some foreign port and asked how the kids were doing. My wife said one of the boys lost something and was besides himself. I remember asking her what he was doing and she said, "Having a temper tantrum like you did when you lost your Leatherman, only not as bad">

I laughed and laughed when I heard that and to this day when I remember my wife's sweet voice saying that, I still laugh.

Sorry that you lost your knife. We have all been there. You're not stupid, just human.

Hey buddy no cutting the line. :)

At least you were driving. A few years ago I had just gotten off an airplane when I walked into an airport elevator with three packages and walked off with two. I had left a nice ice axe gift wrapped in the elevator. Oh well that's what happens when you pass up sleep for more than 24 hours. I still wonder what ever happened to that thing, it's South Florida so some kid is probably still trying to figure out what it is.
