A friend of mine wants me to sharpen his blades that have 37 hrs. of wear on them. They have never been sharpened. You stress that the blade tip must be returned to a 90 degree angle. Thes blades are severely rounded and dull. i sharpened them and got a good edge on them with the mag 9000, but the tips remain rounded. It seems I would have to grind much of the blade off before I reach a point where the tip is somewhat square. Is this correct? Is there a way to square the tips without grinding so much of the edge off?

Hello,

If you cannot return the square tip, you may simply run out of steel to sharpen on that blade, and it is time to purchase a new blade. The TIP and the first 1.5 inches do more than 90% of the cutting work.

Let me know if you have any more questions or want more clarification.

Thank you,
