For this who have a dedicated blade sharpener is or was there much difference in the out come vs using a bench grinder? We've just used an 8" Delta bench grinder for the past couple seasons but I can never get the same look as the dealer does, often resulting in burnt and/or rounded ends, uneven angles etc. One thing I'm going to focus on this year is better maintenance now that we have a nice shop to work in. We usually (or try to) sharpen blades every couple weeks in the spring but again, now that I have a roof over or heads we can now do it every 3-5 days which in the spring and early summer is all we can really get away with in the north with wet Fescue everywhere.
