Nooooooooooo... my Vagabond is gone!
« on: February 27, 2018, 05:13:25 PM »
Disaster struck at the Glenfiddich residence  :ahhh

Since yesterday I noticed my 58mm Vagabond (a green SwissBianco one) was missing. I looked on the usual places, today I also checked my desk and drawers at work, and when I got home I did a more thourough investigation (checking all the drawers, pockets, washing machine etc). No Vagabond  :-\

To make it even worse I only now notice that there is a small hole in my right pocket, where I usually keep it  :'(

I think it's time to draw an ugly conclusion: I lost it  :poh:

My most used and most favorite little SAK of them all  :-\

I can only hope that someone found it on the street or whereever it is, sees it as the so useful little tool that it is, and gets some good use out of it like I did :salute:

And maybe, in a couple of months, signs up at MTo to feed his or her desire in a newly developed hobby  ::)

I can related, had an original Vagabond with Phillips head on the opener, bought new in 1998 and carried every day till it came up missing one summer night in 2015.  Revisited each stop and not found.  Was sick. Then son found a couple on eBay and was gifted them Christmas 2016.

Oh no!  I hope it turns up.  I’ve lost a couple Classics over the years, but those are so readily available it’s not a huge deal.  I’d be upset if I lost a Vagabond.

Oh man, why O why did I at one point decided to detach it from my keyring for convenience, feel so stupid now  :twak:

If it really did fall out of my pants pocket the chances of recovering it are as good as none. I'm certain I used it five days ago when preparing a SAK for shipment. After that i'm not sure if and when I used it. And since february 22 I have been to a lot of places. Supermarket, gas station, hardware store, to my work by bike, my daily 30 minute walk outside (always in a different direction) etc etc  :poh:

This is why I'm in the process of getting extras of my most used SAK's. The thought of not having my Soldier, Pocket tool chest or Swisschamp would be very disheartening.

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?

Yeah, i'll start looking out for a replacement Vagabond soon. Will have to settle for MiniChamp in the mean time.

Bad luck, glen!

No chance it's in the foot well of the car or under your favorite recliner?

I sometimes find a loose 58mm in the cushions of my couch..... :facepalm:

Nope, checked all those places already. But you never know, maybe in the next days of weeks it still pops up somewhere.

Hope so! I once spent like 2 hours driving from place to place, supermarket, bank, bookstore, looking for my S&W Tactical Pen. In the end, I found it under my car seat.

I went from  :ahhh :ahhh to  :-[ :-[ to  :facepalm: but ended up  :D :D

Just keep asking if anybody has seen it. Maybe it turns out somewhere.

Nee die niet.

Een paar jaar geleden kwam het eerste complete Bossche woordenboek uit.

Op de dag van verschijnen werd de redacteur gebeld.

¨Ge bent koekwaus vergete, koekwaus¨ .

Die was het ook niet.

Let´s just say that Glen´s feelings are best expressed with words you don´t learn in the classroom. In whatever language.

I had my SwissChamp scales swapped and engraved at the Warsaw store  this morning and he said to not use it or carry it for around a day to let the filling dry and I think I've already had half a dozen mini heart attacks feeling my empty coin pocket.
