    reason?

    Did hubby give a reason why not?

    I am failing to see why it would harm them.

    If the did become polarized I would think both parts of the blade would tend to repel one another. But hardly enough to make a difference to overcome to force of the spring.

    Also I would tend to think it would not hold the charge very long and once it started to move rapidly back and forth and heat up this would speed up the pace of the polarization being lost.

    Not sure though. I guess also it would depend on what type of magnet you used.

      Reason not to use magnet strip

      My hubby said the reason you shouldn't use the magnet strip is because the blades will hold some magnetism, so that as you use them and the blades rub together shaving micro pieces of metal off, the metal shavings will stay stuck to the blade wearing your blades dull much quicker. He told me a long time ago not to use a magnet strip.

          The blades will get magnetism form being on the bar and also from general use on the clipper. I have had blades come in that you could not pull apart becasue of the magnetism, but could slide it just fine. The problem with a blade being magnetized is it will attract any metal in the the dirt ect. and this will dull the blade.

                Funny

                I think if you like dull blades its a yay, or as in go ahead. But if you are like what I percieve as most of us, you'd prefer sharp blades especially if you plan on clipping, so I'd say for sharpies it's a NAY.

                  it is a NAY. This is the same problem for people that sew, the scissor become magnetized and pick up the pins as they cut and you can imagine what happens to a scissor edge when it tries to cut a metal pin!

                    Told that that was a BIG NO-NO...

                    magnatizing the blades has a adverse effect on them.
