    Don't give up hope. I lost a small Sebenza then found it 3 weeks later. I had picked up a tool bag and put it into my car and the knife had cleaning made the transfer from my pocket to the side pocket of the bag. My daughter was getting into my truck one day and she saw the bag and said "oh when did you find your knife?" I couldn't believe it, I really had thought I would never see it again.

    Thanks for the sympathy and suggestions folks. Powernoodle, no luck on the knife, but I did find two quarters, that will be applied to the replacements purchase price. I'm going to wait a couple days before replacing it, in the hopes that it will somehow show up.

    Sucks anytime you lose something you like... Especially the whole "not knowing where" aspect.... I remember losing my BM grip, I lost balance while cutting some rope on a docked boat, and as it slipped out of my hand I watched it go "into the drink" at a particular spot on the Shrewsbury river which is roughly 20' deep and one of the fastest moving currents along the Jersey shore due to a bottle neck effect.

    I knew exactly where my knife was

    I also knew I wasn't getting it back.

    At least there was closure.

    I too have lost a Delica.

    I once saw a friend of mine pick up and move a bike. When he picked it up the wheel was against his pocket, and the spoke went right underneath the pocket clip and lifted it right out of his pocket. He did not even feel it. I Have lifted up duffle bags and the edge caught on the pocket clip and lifted it out. These are just some suggestions, that might spur a different direction to look. Good luck.

    I wonder if a knife maker could put a magnet in the scale underneath the clip and put one in the clip. That would add to the retention of knives. Something for a custom maker to try or something.

    That's a bad piece of luck Steve. No worse feeling.
    Hope it turns up.

    I lost my SOG Flash 2 about 3 years ago. It was the original design, before they re did it and screwed it up. I'd had that knife for years. Worst thing that ever happened, because it was about my only knife I owned at that time. The only one I ever carried for sure. I've been on an endless search for a replacement ever since, and now have more knives than I can carry on my person at one time.

    I like having variety now, and adding new tools to my collection.

    LOL! I have found so many things in this spot over the years (the French fry too), that this is one of the first places I look for lost items.

    Similar story---I was on a canoe trip on a fast river and pulled over to the side for a meal. As I got back into the canoe and shoved off I saw I left my pocket knife on the rocks but could not manage to row back to it. That was 40 years ago, and I still have that image in my head...

    My Delica keeps trying to loose it's self.

    For some reason it likes to hook, and leap out of my pocket.


    I already broke clip off too. Something about that particular clip, it hates me.

    Sorry to hear that. At work whenever someone looses something we usually make them check their pockets again and what would you know.

    I lost a benchmade 710 for about two weeks after visiting family & I could've swore I left it at their house but it was under the back seat of the car. I felt like a kid at Christmas when I found it.

    Best of luck!

    Good regular carry knife. Get another. But this one may still turn up. I misplace knives all the time. My pickup is the prime location to look as I tend to take out the knife to use while driving and place it on the seat especially on longer trips. Make a quick turn and knife is on the floor.... add some time and junk and it turns up when you clean the vehicle out.

    Hope you find it. I use a pouch, never even tried carrying w/ a clip, knew I'd probably lose the knife.
