    Did you ever throw a knife out (by accident)?

    Today I went dumpster diving to find a knife that I (or my wife) might have thrown away by accident. I turns out it was just (really) misplaced, but as I got to the bottom of the last garbage bag, I didn't exactly want to see a knife that might have been marinating in old yogurt and coffee grounds for three days.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    At work I have pulled them out of the garbage or found them at the bottom of the fry-o-later when cleaning it out. But at home? No. What kind of knife? Something small? I take it not a 360mm tuna sword.

    I'm from the kitchen knife protection services. We're confiscating your knives and taking them to a group home. Mine.

    It was my Miyabi paring knife. And don't discount the power of booze. No protection needed officer; my kids are safe and in bed.

    Never a knife but I am missing a whole bunch of small spoons. No idea what happens to them, they just disappear. Maybe the are running away with the single socks that keep disappearing...

    In the trash, no. But in the laundry, always... I always find the small paring knives in the uniform sleeve pockets of alot of chefs, especially in the hotels.

    When I lived in France, I asked my landlady if any spoons had fallen off the balcony into her yard as I was missing a few of them. She said 'no', but a few days later all my spoons were magically back in my drawer. Does your landlord have a key?
