Had my kershaw blade on the dash opened and I accidentally bumped it and it fell between the dash and windshield. How do I get it out. Lol I'm not ruining my fingers along there it was just sharpened. Any help?

Thanks Dave

Try and fish it out with something.

Maybe a coat hanger or something similar.

Try a magnet and if that doesn't work then pull some panels off the dash until you can find it.

No ideas, but kershaw is my favorite knife brand haha.

I think Adams idea might be the only way, just keep pulling panels.

your dash should, "roll" foward without having to disconnect anything.

Can I borrow your truck?


There is 2 or 3 screws that hold the defroster vent in place, they are the same as the radio bezel. Removing it should get you the visibility you need to get it out. You may need to look through the windshield to see anything.

If you have one of those rare earth magnets about the size of a small calculator battery, you could glue it onto a coat hanger & fish around, maybe get lucky & catch the clip or blade & reel it in.

If all else fails, just drive around on the bumpiest roads you can find for a few hours & hope it falls out in the passenger side foot well.

Them magnets are insane. My aunt got my wife and I a container of them for Christmas (you have to order them I think) They come in a special plastic container that keeps the magnets from getting close to anything.

Anyways, any luck Dave?

BTW: carbon steel hawkbill FTW lol
