I may sharpen a little to much....a sharpen mostly on the bevelside, but do make a coule passes on the back side. The blade is realy as sharp as a knife when I'm done, the only problem is you may have to sharpen more often going with this....

If you sharpen the bottom you change to cutting height. I know it's not much, but nevertheless, it's still higher.

If you sharpen or slightly bevel UP the bottom of the blade, your edge will look like this <

And it will cut the grass then PUSH it down and fray it to get it to pass under the blade.

Your cutting edge should be the LOWEST part of your blade surface.

Didn't I say "not much"??;) Actually, if you are using a professional sharpener you really can't or its very hard to sharpen the other side. Also, with a bench grinder, you can't really "sharpen per say" the other side unless have wheels on both sides of the grinder and room to use them.......
Gees... it's just a pain, isn't it????:dizzy: :dizzy:

Ok guys think about this for a second. Times up!

IF BLADES WERE MEANT TO BE SHARPENED ON BOTH SIDES THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE TO BE SHARPENED LIKE THAT!
