rare earth magnets
I'm looking at new knife storage and the one I picked has rare earth magnets. I know they're stronger and heard we need to be careful around them but didn't know much more about them so went on a hunt to learn more. This article is the easiest to understand that's from a reputable source (NIH) so thought I'd share. It's from 2008, didn't see anything newer. A rare earth magnet can put a pacer in magnet mode up to 24 cm (9") so slightly longer average distance than a regular magnet (6").
I thought this was interesting also, has a chart with magnet size vs distance at which it affected a pacer
Bottom line, looks like they only slightly more likely to affect us than a regular magnet so I'm going to order myself a pretty new knife storage rack.
