    You know how the written word is. It's hard to tell sometimes....
     
  2. Yea, true. I thought patriot would get it...oh well. I agree though, especially in Florida, razor sharp is gone within seconds and is futile.

    Serious question as I have never checked when you do the sharp blunted 1/64" does it wear different than the razors edge?

    I know what your saying about the razors edge. Just yesterday I happened to be looking under the deck after the first lawn of the morning and noticed the razors edge was gone but the blade was still pretty darn sharp and even after the 18th lawn of the day it was still had a decent edge and my Dad mowed 3 of our own acres this morning before I had a chance to put sharp blades on and they were still cutting good.

    I take most of these threads tongue in cheek. I know the OP was asking a serious question. Its fun getting the zealots riled up.

    Why don't they just come up with a blade that never dulls or wears...and is always razor sharp ?

    It couldn't be that difficult...that steel blade is just cutting soft blades of grass.
