As per the title! It has developed knife edges in several places due to the running of my ropes.

Something for other users to look out for .

I noticed this with mine too. Mainly on the underside of the device where it contacts the top of the krab. It has flattened it off slightly and left a small burr either side that the rope then rubs on.
Nothing a file and some wet and dry paper can't fix.

I've just switched to a ATC guide, after having knife edge sharpness develop on my Reversos 2, 3 and 4, all where the rope came out of the non-grooved side.

Happened to mine too. So far the BD ATC Guide has proved better

This issue came up two three four years ago, maybe even longer; can't remember. The general concensus was to take off the sharp edges with some emery cloth and carry on as normal.

That's what I do anyway.

Personally I out of all the devices I like the reverso best, hence I stick with it.

Emery cloth? Dick?

You must be referring to the 'comedian' that my grandad told me about.

For your info http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emery_cloth

General rule was/is emery cloth on metal, sandpaper on wood. Actually, don't take sandpaper to your wood.

That'll be the one! Sandpaper on your wood is, apparently, a good wart remover. Not sure I'd recommend it either!
