Bones Side edges too?

No offense, all I got from your question is that you couldn't tell if the edges had been sharpened except for the fact that they no longer had rust. And then you seemed to be seriously considering detuning them with a rock.

I can see grinding the base and taking the rust of the base side of the edges. If the side edges are now shiny too, then it has very probably been sharpened. If you run your finger down it and it feels sharp and smooth, then ...well... it is.

No one sharpens the tip and tail...why would you?

Makes sense, why bother sharpening the nose and tail... since you would have to detune those anyway. Just ride the board.

I asked for base grind and a hand waxed board, I think the board's edges were sharpened when they grinded the base.

Are your edges sharp or just shiny? Were they dull before the base grind?

Frankly, if you don't know, then just ride it
