    Lost not one but both of my Novatac Storms and my Busse Meaner Streets. For years - generally late at night after a beer or two - something would make me think, “Wait!? Did I check there.” Then I would go tearing the house apart. No joy. I think that I likely stuck it in the car door pocket and the jarring of open/shut, flipped it out onto some parking lot. Guy that found it probably uses it without respect as a screwdriver. Sigh.

    A Leatherman with my call sign engraved on it that was a gift from my squad when I left the Marine Corps. Had it from 1992 until I left it under the hood of a patrol car I was working on in 2008.

    Most recently, a Benchmade Ultra Presidio pocket knife that I left in the U-Haul while helping a buddy move a few months ago. Nothing special about it, so I’m not terribly butthurt that he hasn’t mailed it back- even though he said he would.

    I lost an Olight S2r a couple of years ago. I replaced it with the S1r Baton.

    I lost an Olight S1 Baton recently after about 7 years. After tearing the house apart several times, I broke down and bought a new one.

    I'll probably find the lost one now. :)

    I have lost two Bullet Space Pens. One matte black, the other raw brass. I usually don’t lose items but these guys are sneaky. I have had my Hinderer Investigator pen for longer than the other two combined. The weight, grip etc. let’s you know it’s in your pocket and doesn’t come out. Live and learn.

    Titanium Embassy Pen. Had it for a week. Loved it, perfect weight for me. Stainless and brass are too much and though its grown on me the Aluminum is a little too light. I got a new Skinth with a special slot for that pen. Went to lunch on day one of the Skinth, got back to the shop and noticed it was gone but for the cap. I searched half of S. Baltimore that day. To no availe.

    That's a painful loss - you have my sympathies. I just bought an aluminum version at a great price, and I like it a lot.

    Thanks. Alas, it was lost years ago and has not returned home... Corrections: Lefty Mini Task. Wonderful knife.
