    That's is a huge temp swing. Is that typical? We're getting a bit of a warm spell over the next few days. Temps will be above freezing which means lots of melting snow and possibly flooding. Been a crazy winter.

    neither is typical for us for this time of year.
    lows should be in the 20's, highs in the 40's.
    it's actually been about 30 years since we had a stretch of temps that cold for that long.

    I got my first axis lock type knife today. Hogue ex03. Knife feels great in the hand, though its blade heavy due to the light handle and thick blade. I cant wait to put it to more use. Im so accustomed to liner and frame locks that this lock feels a little awkward to me to boot.

    edit: i had thought this lock had the same internals as the able lock just actuated differently, but thats not the case. This has a plunge lock. Very cool knife regardless.

    Thanks. It opens with such authority that it has flown right out of my hand three times. I cant say ive ever done that before.


    Only issue is the plunge lock has a bit of stick to it. Trying to work the button, it has stabbed me once. I havent cut myself in many moons. Im still digging it overall. I do have another button lock knife, a kershaw dimension. 8cr, chinese, speedsafe.

    We had our annual at-a-boy session broadcast company wide today. Our labs have done 250,000 Covid 19 test since last March
