First, i love all of my spydies, but with the delica i've a special connection since i bought it in Costa Rica, when spending a longer time abroad travelling and meeting a lot of awesome people!
Back to topic:
I was away from home working for my company.
I'm planning and executing Events for all kinds of companies all over europe.
the last few days i spent in Styria (Austria) at the formula1 racetrack executing a big event for one of the major steel companies in Austria.
I was busy with the setup of the event accompanied by my Delica FRN Comboedge, and my Vic Swisstool on my belt.
When everything was finished and set up according the needs of the customer i went to a Mall and got something to eat and later directly to the hotel to check in.
In my room i had to cut the package of something i purchased at the mall and my hand went down to my right pocket to get out my freshly sharpened Delica. - There was NO Knife clipped in that **** pocket!
I started to freak out a little - went back all the ways i've done since i last used the knife for sure, in my head.
No clue where i could have lost it!
So i went back to the eventside - no VG10 Delica anywhere! F***!!
No signs of my Knife at the mall either!
Of course i checked the car and my room properly before. ---
Resigning, after checking all my pockets over and over again I accepted that i've lost this little handy tool with a personal story. Already thinking about purchasing one in ZDP189 to make the gap in my life a little smaller!
After Rethinking all the possibilities of a place where the knife could be i got my notebook out of my backpack, to find a reputable dealer equipping me with a brand new ZDP-189 Delica---
You know what?
My Delica, that little critter, was clipped in one of the coyote tan colored straps, pretty good camouflaged, of my TT bagpack!!!
What a happy moment!
I just wanted to share this little story! maybe there where similar moment in your knife nut lifes as well!
PS: i think i'll get the ZDP 189 Version anyways now!
please don't mind my english, i hope y'all understand most of my writings! - I'm a little rusty in the foreign language compartment already!
