I have lost a couple folders and while it was upsetting, I always treated them as an opportunity to try another folder. But several months back I bought a folder that I absolutely loved - the Spyderco Paramilitary 2. A few months ago, I lost it and I was very distraught. I tore the house and cars apart looking for that thing. Retrace my steps everywhere. I looked everywhere for 2 months but could not find it. And it was not in stock anywhere I looked. I did not even want to try another knife to replace it. Then finally, a couple weeks ago, I found one in stock and was able to replace it. Life can now resume.
