Not trying to correct you but just asking. I thought the carpet blades were double sided not hooked? I was thinking the hooped blades were the ones used for shingles.
Depends on what you are calling carpet blades, these are what I mean...

Rada wheelie knife sharpener
Gave you a like for the Rada sharpener. I had never heard of it until your post. I have tried a number of cheap sharpeners in the past and none of them work well. This one is amazingly simple and turns a dull edge into a working edge in 60 seconds...and for less than $10? Amazing...

I thought it was this post I commented it, but it wasn't. I took a butter knife that had the flat blade part with no serration on it, And put a shaving edge on it with my Rada sharpener, just to see if I could. Love that little thing

Permethrin spray for your clothes for ticks. I never get ticks if I have long sleeves, long nylon hiking pants, gaiters, and a hat and it was all sprayed with permethrin recently. I don't think picardin or deet works nearly as well (don't think picardin works on ticks at all really) and deet will fog your plastic glasses and melt other plastics and absorbs into your skin. I was taking a break sitting in a field and looked down and a spider crawled onto my permethrin pants and it had a seizure and died (really weird but I watched in the name of science).

Insect Shield company sells clothes with a lifetime treatment (good for 70 washings) and you can also send them your clothes and they will treat it with the same lifetime treatment. They charge by the pound.

I thought I had taken a picture of thawing out my gun this day too, but I didn’t find it....





Found an irrigation pond that had the last of the open water....



Howling wind, snowing sideways and serious cold left 3 of us shooting single shot autoloaders, lol.

Which leads to to another great cheap item that will save the day....



This stuff is awesome and a small tub last forever. No more cold issues, or issues of any kind, since switching over to it. Takes rust right off in a single wipe too.

Amazon bulk military wool gloves. I always end up with mismatched gloves and can’t find a right and left. These are warm, you can shoot with them, can be worn on ether hand and you get 12 pairs so it’s hard to loose them all.
