    When sharpening, do you square off the blade tips that have become rounded due to wear?

    if you square the end over time it will shorten blade length and possibly leave a strip of grass behind

    I always thought that the very tip of the blade did the cutting. So I would say you need to have a square tip.. It should be sharpened like a New blade looks... Square. When I sharpen my blades thats what I do. Check out the Magna-Matic web site, they give full details on what a blade is supposed to look like..
    Hope this helps.....
