>If you have some sharpening skills I would hold off on the factory sharpening until you have tried yourself. I picked up my Lion Trimmer at the flea market for $20. It was missing the left side guide which I ended up buying from Pootatuck and it also had a chip about 1/32 deep on one cutter. I removed the cutter and lapped it down on my 6 by 48 belt sander set in the horizontal position. I then honed it on a medium diamond stone and finished it on a hard Arkansas stone. It is razor sharp and cuts perfectly.
