    Lost my Fisher Space Pen the other day. Had to get my backup out.

    I had to "donate" a Huntsman SAK to the TSA when I forgot to check it in my luggage. Although, my wife also "donated" my Gerber Big Rock fixed blade to TSA on a separate trip, so at least we're even :rolleyes:. Of course, that means I had an excuse to buy more knives, so it worked out in the end.

    Fisher Space Pens are designed to be lost. After two of them made good their escapes, I reverted to a Victorinox Manager. On the whole, when I need a pen while out and around, it does as well as the Fisher, and I've never lost a SAK.

    I found a big yacht clip somebody left behind in Bosnia. Got a lot of use out of it, but it's retired, due to wear.

    My HDS EDC flashlight :( I suspect my 2 year old somehow got a hold of it and disappeared it to that magical fold of space/time that toddlers place stuff in.

    I've also lost a custom fixed blade I carried to the TSA (due to my stupidity of not fully checking my camera bag)

    I hate losing stuff.

    I had my first ever SAK taken my airport security because it was in my shorts pocket when I packed them into my backpack the morning of my flight. I think I was about 12.
    This was less than a week after my grandad did the exact same thing.

    What got me is that my mum flies with her hiking pack and she's taken her swisschamp (I think) half a dozen times just because she forgot about it and it's never been spotted, but my little camper was spotted.

    I lost my space pen on the train a couple months ago and I've lost at least three vic escorts on my keys over the years. Thankfully my mum is a drug rep and she was giving them out maybe 20 years ago now. I found a box of them hidden in a toolbox a few years back now. Still carry one. Works great despite being stored in the damp for 20 years.

    I lost my Leatherman Skeletool CX last week :-(

    It must have fallen off of my back pocket somewhere; I did not notice until the next day.

    Woe is me, I miss that 154CM blade already :-(

    Lost? TSA took my SAK, a small climber. My search for a replacement lead me into this EDC world.

    Over the last couple of decades, the only EDC items I lost have been two Fisher Space Pens, which are designed to leave pockets, and a Mora Clipper* in a sheath that somehow got detached from my belt and swallowed up in a half acre of yard waste. After lots of rummaging, I accepted the loss, eventually replacing it with another, with an improved sheath retention method. I replaced the 2nd Space Pen with a SAK Manager, which does just fine for signatures, shopping lists and note taking, and carried in my 5th pocket, It is going nowhere I don't want it to go.

    *I forgot about the Mora in my earlier post.

    When I first got into EDC a few years ago I searched and searched for the perfect flashlight. I finally found the EagTac D25A Ti 2014 and fell in love. I carried the same one for years then one day I remember having it when I got out of the truck on a job site but didn’t have it when I got back to the office. I was physicslly saddened by that.

    I finally found another 2014 Ti verstion and I still love the light but it’s just not the same.

    A few weeks ago I helped my parents move to VA from MD and when I got to their place I didnt have my Mini mk2 in copper. Very depressing as I just got it a month or so before and realized the last place it could of been was at a gas station in Roanoke when I pulled out my keys it must of been pulled out of my pocket. The clip on the Mini MK2 is not very tight to begin with.
