parting tool grind *LINK*

>I just purchased an Ashley Isles narrow parting tool (see link). I've been told by one turning instructor to grind down the tip to make it more like a diamond parting tool to keep the tool from binding (or something like that).

Does anybody grind narrow parting tools like that? If so, how much of the tip do you grind off?
