    Sorry if this has been ask before. When I get a burr on one side of the blade, do I deburr it before I get a burr on the other side of the blade while sharpening it? I am using a sharpmaker with the diamond rods and S35V steel on a Reate folder.

    You raise a bur on the opposite side you’re sharpening. So when you go to that side use a stropping motion first to straighten the bur out. Run the edge perpendicular on a piece of wood. Then sharpen that side. You will then get a bur on the other side. Do the same process.

    Once you feel the burr I would just flip it over and scrub it on that side. Remove the burr and you're done. DM

    I think what should be happening is, you grind the burr off one side and create another on the other side.
    I believe it is possible tho to just push the burr from side to side with The wrong angle and/or too much pressure. I also think some steels and heat treats are more susceptible to this than others.
