    Not like me to loose or misplace any knife but have no idea where my small isigno is. Been a few months.

    Still have a mandi though!

    Oh no say it isn’t so! I never say lost, misplaced, MIA, temporarily outta reach but never lost. Lost is when I see it sail off the deck of a ship in the middle of the ocean. Lost is the muddle of the Sahara. Anything else is just misplaced.

    Hope it turns up sooner than later. Till then I’m sure when you’re carrying the Mnandi you check your pocket every couple minutes like when you carried your first Sebenza.

    Sending some mojo your way hoping it turns up. If not, then let’s at least hope that whoever finds it recognizes and appreciates it for what it is.

    If you aren't sure where it was lost, you have a decent chance of it turning up. I have heard some really weird stories of where people landed up finding their knives. Hope this proves true for you also.

    Dont give up the ship ! I lost mine cutting wood and brush. She was gone for 11 months.
    I looked and looked till i was sick . Then while walking in the area . I saw a bright object and bingo !
    Been missing for 11 months layed there in the rain , snow and the cold . Full of mud , but a little cleaning and she is as good as new . Mine still is my edc, but any heavy activity and it goes into pocket .
    I hope you find yours too.

    Sorry man. I dropped an Emerson gentle Jim on the street in front of a fast food restaurant. I heard something fall out of my truck. Couldn’t figure out what it was. After I got home, 3hrs, I couldn’t find it and realized that’s what I had heard hit the ground. Called the place. They did not have it. Someone got incredibly lucky.

    Quickest way to have it turn up is to buy a replacement. Right after you get your hands on it, the lost one just appears......

    Thanks guys. Is painful but may show up at some point like you said. I am hoping it is just misplaced but not like me. Not super organized but keep track of my blades especially being it was in top $ range of my meager collection.

    If it ain’t in my toolbox that I converted to main knife storage or on my magnetic strip over the sink where most of my edc knives reside, it is gone or long term misplaced.

    I hope you find it.

    I know how much losing a beloved knife can hurt our kind of people. Hopefully it will turn up where you never thought of looking for it. I assume you have already checked places like the cushions on your chair/couch and inbetween your car seat and central console etc.

    Not that it is any consolation but atleast it isn’t a discontinued knife and you can replace it when you feel like it.

    Cars are a 1st place to look, but it can be something as obscure as attached to a 12 pack of toilet paper. Clips can be hitch hikers.

    Around the seats in all the cars you've sat in recently. Clips grab seatbelts like mad.

    My couch eats everything. That's the first place to check if I've misplaced it while at home.

    With me it's changing clothes , to suit, shorts, set in bathroom on counter, or someplace stupid where it would not normally go,,,,, closet shelf, in kitchen or shop where I used it to cut something, then needed both hands , and forgot the knife!

    Use a flashlight to look. It helps focus the eyes and lets you see better under seats and cushions like in a car.

    For me, I say to myself "I shouldn't put this down here but I'll remember..." And of course I don't.
