Did not have the best day

Postby DRKBC » Mon Oct 14, 2013 8:20 pm

Lost my Sebenza yesterday. I was washing my wifes car at the car wash and it must have dislodged from my pocket at some point. The clips are pretty good usually but it must have just worked its way loose.

I can't even imagine what thats like. Keep your hopes up and maybe Cutlerylover will have another "claim your lost Sebenza" vid.

I don't have really high hopes, I went back to the site and looked and I asked a couple employees about it but it doesn't look too promising. I guess what was a loss for me is a great find for someone else.

Ironically, in all probability, the person who found your knife has zero idea what it is and could not tell it apart from a $10.00 knife from Pakistan. Sorry for your loss. The fear of losing a knife like that is the primary reason my Chris Reeve and Hinderer knives don't get that much pocket time.

Check in between the seat where the seat belt clips. I have lost numerous knives there because somehow my knife catches on the seat belt buckle and comes out of my pocket in my wife's car.

Wow dude good luck with that. This is one reason I haven't brought myself to buy a Strider...that much on an easily lost item scares me. It's bad enough losing a $50 Delica.

Thanks guys, I don't carry it all that much but I have been enjoying it the last few days. Its funny at one point in the day I remember reaching into my pocket and thinking that's odd I don't have a knife in my pocket today but it didn't really phase me at the time. I usually put them away at the end of the day so I thought I just forgot to put one in my pocket that day. It was when I went to get a knife to carry and saw the empty sheath that I realized it.

That is true, however the Strider pocket clips are amongst the stiffest I have ever used. Way different than the CRK Ti ones.

I'm truly sorry to hear about this, DRKBC. I know all too well the sickening feeling of losing something valuable. :( I hope you may find your knife again one day. Never give up hope!

Speaking of stiff pocket clips, I stopped carrying my Emerson CQC-7 due to this very reason. The pocket clip would about tear my jeans every time I tried to pull it from my pocket. :eek: I dare say I'd have a devil of a time trying to lose this knife!

Did you carry a bucket to wash the car with or a hose ? its a natural position to hold a bucket at that height I know it may be stating the obvious .
But if you did check around where the bucket was filled or along the path , or where the bucket is now if you did use one .
Just trying to offer some hope I feel for you and hope you find it mate .

Edit : sorry I just read you used a car wash , maybe going and talking to a manager and explain it has sentiment to you and could he possibly check the CCTV .
I know they have to have them for insurance purposes here but idk where you are if its the same.
Good luck mate .

This is what I would do, I didn't think of this at first but what a great idea. It would be worth a try at least.
That stinks hope you get it back.

Thanks guys I had them post it on the bulletin board at the car wash and posted an add in the lost and found. The car wash is one of those new swanky do everything-there ones so I spent a lot of time, power washing the car, Vacuuming cleaning the rims etc. Pretty noisy so I think it could have fallen out without me noticing although it may have happened somewhere else. I wish I noticed that day, as I think I would have had more of chance if finding it. Anyway, the search continues.

Not likely, it was a big purchase when I did it and it kind of makes you re-think carrying a $400 knife when you lose one. I guess never say never though :)
