    Are nicked blades a huge proplem or can you just sharpen them and be fine? I ask because one of my blades is nicked. thanks :):):)

    I don't worry about small nicks, but I change and sharpen blades usually every day. Big nicks, especialy towards the outside of the blade I try to grind down at least till they are smaller. I figure if 95% of the blade is sharp should be good enough.

    if they are small nicks, shouldn't be a problem, just keep the blades sharp. blades aren't bent?

    I always sharpen my blades about the same way, as far as nicks and burrs go I let them work themselves out over time.
