    I've found that some old guys who enjoy metal detecting will likely take on this search for you for a very small fee. Perhaps even just getting to keep what they find other than that knife.

    Sorry about your loss, sir.

    If you want to replace it, I recommend talking to Brad. If he doesn't have one and can't get one for you, he may be able to connect you with someone who can.

    Or, look at it as an opportunity to try something new. Lots of mid techs and customs available that can easily do anything a Strider did and you may find something you actually like better.

At one point some geese started going nuts on the creek and I caught a glimpse of a coyote so I grabbed my rifle and crouched down to try to get a shot. I was hopeful that this was where the knife came out of my pocket but a thorough search this morning yielded nothing.

    I am diminished. The best knife I've ever owned is gone and it is unlikely it can be replaced.

    I feel naked.

    I feel guilty.

    I am in mourning.

    I may never recover.

    I don't carry an expensive knife because i've convinced myself that carrying something (comparatively) cheap will prevent me from being upset if/when I lose it. This weekend I lost a $45 knife that I've carried for the last 5 years. I nearly panicked and only felt better when I was able to find it. I get weirdly attached to things, so I suppose I might as well take the plunge and get something nice.

    All that to say, sorry about your loss.

    If it's any consolation, blade technology keeps advancing. There's a lot of nice knives out there at a good price. Might be fun to go shopping and pick up something new.

    Have you ever handled a spyderco paramilitary 2? In my opinion itís one of the best knives out there, plenty of different blade materials out there to suit whatever your needs are, while staying at a reasonable price. I have a few Benchmades, spydercos, and even a Microtech and hands down the para2 is my favorite edc

    I forgot to update this thread, the Strider has been replaced. I got a good deal on a Hinderer XM-18 3" Warncliff flipper with a carbon scale and blue hardware. Lesson has been learned and I'll always miss my Strider so this one won't be carried while I'm enjoying my outdoor activities.

    There's lots of ________ on here who don't fit your particular stereotype, smearing us with goofball sophistry is what is out of line. It just makes gunowners look like *******s.

    A knife is no good if you're scared to carry it.

    Rent a metal detector. Go find that Strider. Take a rifle. You might kill a coyote.

    That's a really nice Hinderer, been checking the USN and Blade Forums since you said you lost your PT, just have not seen any for sale at all (striders are kinda hard to find)
