Burrs on Blades

In the July Issue of On The Edge I did a write up on the importance of demagnetizing clipper blades. In the article I share some pictures showing what the blades looked like under magnification. I wanted to share them here as well.

Blade after sharpening, before demagnetization, and before being blown off with compressed air. Note all the burrs.

Blade after being blown off, but without being demagnetized first. Note the burrs that are still attached to the blade.

If you're interested in more about this (or more about sharpening in general) here is a link to On The Edge. Take a look at the preview issue or email me if you have any questions.
