I also polish the edge up quite a bit using a hard/ fine jnat and finish on a leather strop loaded with chromium oxide. I want the edge to be able to cleanly push cut whatever I throw at it and seeing as a mandoline blade never touches a cutting board edge retention is really a non issue. A couple guys at work have "nipped the tip" while using it without knowing it. It will get frighteningly sharp.
    I haven't got jnat yet one day!

    Thanks for all the great responses. I'm going to sharpen our blade this weekend. It's in terrible shape. If I mess up.. I can get a new blade at an inexpensive price from Jbro ... our hiphop hero of course.

    I do not blame you man! They are scary. I am trying to be open to using them... and if I can sharpen/maintain the edge I feel better about using them.

    BTW, what slicer machine do you use?
