"thin steel" "deflash"

Howdo? I just got a GNU CHB 164W. It had a sticker on it that had the hand written words "thin steel" and "deflash" on it. The edge looked a little thin compared to my wife's new board, so I'm assuming it was a second. Anyone know if that will significantly effect the life or ride of the board?

Thanks for any help? Happy trails.

not significantly, if you beat the board up Id assume it would be more prone to an edge tear if your hitting stumps or doing some gnarly stuff, otherwise it the edges will probably be just fine.

Well if you tune your edges a lot it just means be aware that you could grind through it quicker than a regular edge. You sure it doesn't say Delam instead of deflash. I'm not sure what deflashing is but I know you can sometimes get Mervin seconds that have been epoxied back together.
