I just take down the blade far enough to cut the grass, no need in digging dirt.

payup I show a little dirt. My customers love the detail of seeing the separation of grass and concrete by a small line of dirt. They always compliment the manicure.
I drop my blade an inch below the sidewalk, generally.
Sometimes I'll run two blades for an extra wide swath.
They last longer than twice that of a single blade too.
