lost my knife Thursday and had it returned Saturday

So I bought a new knife after the last angel shark I took bent the previous one like it was Uri Geller. I had my new knife less than a month, when last Thursday it disappeared from my sheath during a lunch break bug dive. I got skunked (lots of bugs, all short) and was thinking as I got out, "that was an expensive lunch."

I use a two sided black and white paint pen, to write my phone number on every piece of my gear, from my weight belt to my NHT bag. I did it to my new knife and mask as soon as I got them. So I thought it might come back if it didn't get buried in sand, but I had resigned myself to its loss.

This morning the phone rings and some guy says "Hey are you a loser?" I answer "Sometimes, may I ask who is calling?" he replies "Its me, the guy who found your dive knife."

15 minutes later I've got it back from a cool SB dude. He's a diver who found it while getting skunked himself, and was happy to return it to me.

So despite how lame it looks Im pretty stoked to have my number on my speargun and everything else that I take into the water.

Re: lost my knife Thursday and had it returned Saturday

I had the same thing happen last year when I took 2 bugs and the ocean took my knife as I was exiting( I wasn't so lucky getting it back). Where are these angel sharks at Namor? Anyone diving tomorrow? I'm in town and wanted to get some lobster and or fish.

wow you are lucky

I keep diving in hopes to find a hidden treasure some day and be rich.

water looks ugly around here but it sounds like there are little patches of vis here and there.

Awesome story. I hope that guy gets some back on his good karma. The world is full of jerks, it's cool to see that there is still hope for humanity...

Pics are in the Santa Barbara reports thread; nothing too impressive but they made for a good dinner.
