At the time when I got this knife, there used to be a catalogue called 'Survival Aids' with lots of cool stuff in it that I could never afford and the holy grail for us was the Wilkinson Sword survival knife.
Pic from the innertube

bouncing around the British Isles, never quite could lay my hands on one. i used to use these. A whitby, made in Sheffield we used em cutting Burly up in the hills when i was a kid. bout a 12" long razor sharp huge hawkbill. they called em billhooks. seen em in Erie, Wales, Scotland and England. I got back home, looking fo the one i grew up using, (it would take the head off a snake as good as it would cut burly ) and all my possessions were gone. Sold the day after i enlisted.

Missed pickin one up over there, cant find one under a real stupid price over here now. they had a "KAVACK" sound when you snapped em open and they locked.........

Lost several knives in my life......and found most of them after a while.
A couple the following year.
I still have a belt pouch with SAK that I lost "In the bedroom"....How can that happen?

Some time I think they go away a hide for a while to see if you appreciate them of not.

I always thought it was a alternate universe, that some where, in another dimension theres a Guy named Frank, wandering where the hell all the parts and tools come from that he finds laying in the middle of his kitchen table, ( they gotta be going somewhere, I can misplace a tool and never have my feet leave a 2 foot circle.

frank finds them throws them, and they ends up back in the far corner of my shop.

amazing...........truly amazing how that works...

Always wondered about pocket knives with cool realtree or sim camo finishes, then the son of a bud dropped his in the weeds and never did find it. My green SAK doesn't go out now.

YES!

YES!


**** YES!!!!






Finally got back out today, in CSI mode and I started at the top again and slowly worked my way down. There she was, about 15m up from the bottom of the steep route, just past a large patch of bush lawyer; it's like walking through velcro.

The old girl is a bit rusty from her week out in the bush, but I'll treat her to a clean, sharpen and oil and all will fine again!

I am a happy camper again

Lost a dive knife one time. Looked for hours and not a trace. 3 years later, dropped off the boat, went to the bottom and there it sat. Not covered with silt, looked like it had been there for 1 day.

Miracles do occur.

shoot straight - stay safe

I share your joy.....find lost stuff is a great feeling.

Wore a Gerber Touche' Belt buckle knife for years...





Lost the blade clearing brush in a particular rough patch....
Really bugged the heck out of me.....felt gut punched.

Was still working in the area on/off a few weeks later, happened to glance down....thee is the grass was "The Blade"

It is retired and picked up another one (not made since the 1980's)
