Already shared the story in this thread when I lost my Endura 4 for good...

The second knife I lost was a Stretch 1.... and that happened when it was already discontinued and really hard to find at that particular time. Loosing a discontinued knife hurts even more than one that is at least still in production

I shared that story and that it is the only knife I have a backup for in this thread viewtopic.php?p=1333009#p1333009 (actually I have three VG10 Stretch 1, but one I got used and the blade is severely "sharpened away" already,plus one in HAP 40)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Losing a knife always sucks. At least the Endura and Delica are sub $100 knives and are a little easier to replace than other models. So far I have never lost a knife with a pocket clip on it (knock on wood).

Over the years I've probably lost 6 Spyderco folders that I remember. And that's over the past 20 years or so.

About 4 years ago I found out that my G-10 Harpy got stolen. A lady I didn't know came to me and told me who it was that stole it and said that he sold it at a party for little more than the price of a pack of cigarettes :mad: The worthless jerk didn't even know what it was worth. :mad:

I can live with the ones I lost by my own carelessness but to have them stolen is a completely different issue. Yeah it does give you a gut-hollow feeling to have something as nice and costly as a Spyderco knife lost or stolen. I'm a lot more careful than I used to be.

I usually find mine under the seat between the seatbelt buckle and center console.
I literally just found my trusty blacked-out combo edge Delica (missing for a week) in the exact same location... it never occurred to me to look there because I was so certain that I'd lost it at work. As an added bonus, I also found about $6.00 worth of loose change LOL!

I've lost a few "beaters" over the years—a Kershaw Shuffle II & a Victorinox Sentinel being the most recent—but the feeling still sucks regardless of material value.

This is now the first place I look. Somehow, knives have an affinity for getting lost in that spot.

Dang, that's rough. The most expensive knife-related thing I've ever lost was a Leatherman Skeletool (which is not really a premium item all things considered) & I was super-annoyed at myself for days afterward for being so careless. Can't even imagine how that guy feels.

OUCH!!! That has to be painful. I've never lost a Spyderco and hopefully never will.

I’ve never lost an expensive knife. I did lose one Gerber to the cruise liner security screening ten years ago. I found a CRKT Ignite on a hiking trail to make up for it a few years later! It was gritty with sand, but eventually smoothed out with use.

If you sat or laid down on a couch or back in a recliner look there. Over the years, I've lost my 3.5 twice, both times in the couch. First time it took a few weeks to find may have been good as I carried multiple Spydies during the period of mourning. :( Second time it was lost I called my daughter the next day and she found it in her couch. My Grandson plays rough. :D Hope you find it, like losing a friend. But then making new friends is always a good thing. :)
