:cry: I would have rather lost a Wenger Giant, at least it would be replaceable, expensive, but it could be done.
First time I've ever seen that sentence. :sa:

Good luck with the search.  :-\
Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

I know the feeling... for some time I had lost my first SAK, a Woodsman with my name engraved as a gift from my parents. It did eventually turn up, though! My second SAK, the only other one a gift from my parents, a Cybertool 34/M, was almost lost for good as the mrs took my gym bag for a day trip and turned it over at the airport. By a miracle, I was able to get ahold of someone there who reunited me with it. Hope is not lost!

My advice: Give yourself a full day of looking and cleaning (which is often how I find things!). By giving yourself the full day, you'll be less likely to skip areas that you may assume it won't be (which is often where it is) and oddly enough you may come across other things you've lost. Check:

- All pockets of clothing, including jackets, sweaters, pants, and anything packed away
- Backpacks, bags, ammo cans, duffle bags, camping gear, etc., fishing tackle boxes, gym bags, gun cabinet, gun cases/bags, tool boxes
- Boxes, bins, desk drawers, any storage container of any kind, including the kitchen cupboards and especially cutlery drawers, all furniture
- On top, under, and behind all furniture, cabinets, cupboards; all creases of couch and bed (including along the bed frame if you have one!!!) and appliances (especially the washing machine and drier area)
- Cars (all areas around the seat including the creases, underneath), boats (kayaks especially), life jackets
- Around and behind things on shelves, like trinkets, photos, books, etc. It's amazing how often we momentarily put things in silly places then walk away!
- Within boxes/packaging, especially for things you may have used it to assemble. Check any Victorinox boxes.
- The garage. Yes, the bloody garage. Could be anywhere or behind anything. Check everywhere.
- Basement/workshop area. Turn it inside out if you must.

Having said all that, it often is the case that things just turn up when you go to use or do something that you don't normally. Cleaning can be a good way to come across things.

Most important thing to stress is not to disregard places. If it's lost, it's probably somewhere you don't think it should be.

Thank you all for your replies and details, it has helped.

I have not found it, but, as I have searched old posts around the date I last saw it and searched photos on my phone and computer I have now realized I have 4 knives missing!
This is actually good news for me.  They were all knives that were on my desk when I last saw them.  Right at this time I had some remodeling done in my house, so lots of things were packaged up and rearranged.  Since it is 4 knives (at least), it's quite likely they're all together.  I obviously miss the custom Bantam one the most.

Knives missing:
1) Custom carbon Bantam
2) $8.00 vintage knife....an old beat up knife, but cool.
https://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,82052.msg1960520.html#msg1960520
3) Vintage Wenger Horn knife
4) Compact with custom titanium scales
Rest in peace ColoSwiss, you will always be remembered.

I still think the chance of it mixing in the wrong collection box is high.  Maybe you temporarily put them in one of the boxes, thinking you will come back to retrieve them but didn't?

My wife lost her Edelweiss Classic. I bought here a new red one, then some months later she found the Edelweiss in a handbag in the closet. Probably took it off her keys when she was going to fly somewhere, changed handbags and forgot.  :think:

It took airport security to find my missing Juice XE6, in my Sister's backpack side pocket, after she had flown multiple domestic and international flights with it as her carry on.  :whistle:

Right now I have no idea where my Buck 110 is, but I guess it'll show up one day.  :dunno:

I usually find things when I stop looking, or look for something else. you now need to start looking for something unrelated and it will magically appear.

I wish you luck!

Good luck FoBo. Where's the least likely place it'd be? That's always proved to be where I've lost stuff. Not sure you can shortcut by going there first.
I lost my first SAK, a Fisherman I was given in South Africa, when I was a boy and it still niggles.

I'm sorry about your Fisherman, FaB.
Hmmmm, least likely place?  That would be the grey barn shed.  I'll check it today.  :tu:

Looks like a dedicated SAK collection shed. But it's not apparently :)

It's insulated:


And it has a loft:


I had it built to house my brother's belongings (may he rest in peace) while I go through them.

Beautiful shed, FB! 8)  Just the sort I'd like, if I had the space for it.

Re your Bantam, it's been said before but perhaps the best thing to do is to NOT look for it, not consciously. I lost a favourite knife once and looking for it almost drove me mad. Months and months later I found it in the pocket of a travel bag. A pleasant surprise! Same with a favourite watch that I gave up on as lost for keeps. My now ex found it years later in the weirdest of places - a box of junk.  ???

Good luck, FB!  :)

Thank you SG!
The good news is I found the first backpack I ever bought.  This is 30-35 years old.  Hard to believe it looks so good.  I thought I might have sold it at a yard sale, but was happy to find I had kept it.
It's nothing fancy, one large opening for books and such, then a smaller front pouch for pens, SAKs etc.  It doesn't have cup holders, or cord channels, or charging station or back massager, just a proper book bag.  It was those little boot prints on the front that caught my attention.
