Yes, I bought an inexpensive fixed blade Kobun for very few bucks. But, I managed to lose it from the strap of a camera bag on a four-mile hike. It was a good knife, unused. The belt clip is apparently useless on a typical webbing strap.

I will return to the scene of the crime tomorrow, if the weather holds for BMW K1600GT riding. I'll take the reverse route, and hope the leaves covered it up just enough. Most people aren't observant, so maybe I'll find it.

If not, I may purchase another one. They've gone up in price quite a bit, though.

Got any friends with metal detectors? That might help.
Good luck.

Friend with detector — yes. Sadly the detector is way far away.

I will have to look for straight edges in amongst the randomness and curvature of nature.

It is certainly the fastest and most comprehensively capable motorcycle I’ve ever had. 165 hp will take you to 88 mph in no time.

Velcro wire/gear wraps are good for securing stuff like that if you don’t want to ziptie or tape it.

Losing stuff bugs me.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

I went back to the scene of the crime. I dashed 4.2 miles around the hill, and didn’t see nothing. Except for a black flip flop, a brown beer bottle, a clear water bottle, and a few oddly colored black rocks. With all the people wandering around, I’m sure someone has picked up a new Kobun by now. It was a long shot. I did get to the renowned bagel dispensary for lunch, and picked up six NY style bagels for my wife. And, I got to ride 154 miles. Not all bad.

I took a brief test ride on one. Very impressive! But with a short riding season, I couldnt justify 22K.

Any bialys?



Any cocktail can be a shrimp cocktail if you put your mind to it, and if you carry lots of loose shrimp in your pocket.

I don’t know what a bialys bagel is. I just bought the plain bagels.

Bialy: imagine, if you will, a bread product that tastes somewhat like an onion bagel, with consistency more like an English muffin than a bagel.



Best enjoyed fresh. I mean REALLY fresh, like still warm, right out of the oven. Apply some butter and enjoy with a cup of good coffee or a glass of fresh squeezed Florida orange juice.

If you don't have access to a Mom & Pop bagel bakery, your grocery store might carry Ray's brand of bialys in the freezer section. Thaw one and toast it lightly, not really toasted, just enough to warm it up.

Sorry about the knife

Really miss getting bagels from Bodo's since I left Charlottesville in '09. Worked walking distance from the downtown Bodo's for 6 years.

Their egg salad on a garlic bagel...to die for.

Had my lost my Olight thread & your Kobun thread.

A new Olight showed up for Christmas & a Kobun for my birthday Cool

I can see how it could become dislodged, the clip doesn't seem to hold with more tension than the sheath retention. Had the whole thing come out instead of just the blade.

That clip on the scabbard is what keeps me from plunking down $40 for a replacement. I am searching various sellers online for a better knife. The recon tanto with the scabbard that I lash into a pack won't vanish. But, hard to deploy.
