    Yeah, I guess. What else could it be for but to make the blades aesthetically pleasing to customers...

    Proper balance. It would be hard to balance a blade that has a ton of crap on it and when you go out to mow, the balance changes because it is either holding more stuff or dropping weight off.

    I don't know about in Atlanta but here in FL, all the sand just wears away the blades and they are never dirty at the end of the day. They are sand blasted and clean as a whistle.

    we get a buildup of greencrust on them, but it's nothing a scraper or the wire wheel on the grinder doesn't take care of.

    Well we get "dirty" blades.... but build up? never seen it. just a stain... color changes depending on how long it's been since you cut grass with it!

    And the "harmonics" of an unbalanced blade would shake off any minor build up you may get while mowing.

    Snake oil.... just like oil additives etc. Yet agains someone has invented a solution is search of a problem to solve.
