Found: Black Knife, Benchmade Doug Ritter

Post by nikster » Tue Nov 03, 2015 8:23 am

TL;DR: I found a black knife, Brand Benchmade (Doug Ritter). Has three digit serial number which will be used to verify owner.

Long version: I was out in the middle of the deep playa, when I saw a little black folding knife in the sand. It was completely covered in dust. I picked it up as moop. I figured that the owner is never going to find it here, in the middle of nowhere. I mean, I have lost entire bicycles in the playa- what's the chances of finding a knife in this vast space. I also figured that nobody would make the effort and stand in line for 3 hours at burning man lost and found for what I estimated to be a $30 item. So I kept it, better than it ending up in a lost and found graveyard somewhere.

It's been in a drawer ever since but as I was somewhat randomly using this knife today to cut cheese, I got intrigued and decided to find out what kind of a knife it is. Turns out it's a limited edition run with a serial number, one of 240 made. Sort of a knife enthusiast's knife. So as much as i'm drooling over this little piece of metal perfection, I am sure the owner would really love to get it back. And Id love to arrange for that.

Is it yours? Contact me and I'll have it sent to you.
