Woohoo! I chucked out a big load of old magazines for recycling last week, and afterwards, I couldn't find my damascus Laguiole-style knife. I thought "well, that's gone forever", as the bin had been emptied the same afternoon.
Then, sorting out Christmas presents for wrapping, I found the knife in the bag which contained all the cards I'd bought. I like that knife a lot - it looks like this one, only with a cream-coloured handle.
