    OK....So let's really exam this trend of using a File to sharpen your blades. It sounds as though people actually believe in this method. I guess I need help, but I've tried the file thing and my Hustler blades, which are hardened to Rockwell 39, and it's just impossible. Also, I've kept an eye on this perception that the edge on your blade lasts longer on new blades, and it doesn't on my blades.

    Thought you guys might like it. Been trying for a week to find one small enough to post. Now that I am retired from the military, I am trying to get a civilian out look on things as well as a good sense of humor. ;)

    Sorry,
    I saw the thread but I didn't see much else than hearsay. I thought it was worth exploring, since either I'm doing something wrong, or the people using the files are using the grinder incorrectly.
    thanks,
    Pete
