Alpo Posted February 26 Share Posted February 26 You have a flat blade (or, if you prefer, a square point) shovel. You plan to slide it along your driveway, cutting off the grass that has grown up through the expansion joint. Logically if the front edge of the shovel is sharp, it will cut better. So you get out your handy dandy file and prepare to sharpen the edge. Since this is not an ax, you do not want to sharpen it from both sides. Which side would be best to sharpen it from? Sharpening from the back of the shovel would certainly be easier, but it seems to me that sharpening from the front of the shovel would place the edge where it needs to be. It also seems like sharpening from the front side would be a easy way to cut your hand. So, boys and girls, which side should you sharpen it from?
