Default How do u use that little notch on plastic scrapers?

i've been wondering this for a while. not sure if it's on all plastic scrapers, but so far the one's ive seen all have the notch, even the triangular scrapers. at first i didnt even know what it was for, then i looked it up online and it says it's for easy edge scraping. so now im wondering, how is it even used? is it for scraping the side edge from wax? i just let the mountain remove the wax, if any, on my edge.

to get exessive was off your edges by sliding it on the edge in the groove.

if plastic noticably dulls your edges that much i would recommend never riding a rail or box, i would even look at getting a new board.

You dont take it and grind the shit out of your edges..just run it down the underside of your edge to get any wax that may have gotten pushed onto the bottom while you were spreading wax...if you dont its not really taht big of a deal you get most of it just scraping anyways...
