No Longer Here, BY CHOICE
Your not suppose to sharpen the ends or the angles portion of the trimmer. You sharpen the flats on the back side of the trimmer. I use a fine diamond card to sharpen mine. A few swipes on each flat usually has it cutting pretty good. The problem with trying to sharpen the end or the angled portion is if you dont take off the exact same amount of material on all four cutters, they wind up being differnt lengths over time. Then you may have only one or two cutters doing the work. Also because those angled portions are so small, its very difficult to keep the proper angle. By sharpening the back flat, your angle and cutter length never changes.
