Pizza Cutter, not the roller kind, but the blade

I have two of the long kind of pizza cutters. I guess you see them in pizza shops that is as long as the diameter of the pizza...12". The edge got bent on one of them. You know how when you look at the diagrams of when to use a sharpening steel and show the edge bent to one side, it's bent just like that. I have run it across the sharpening steel and gotten most of the nick out.
Do i need to run this across my stones and make it razor sharp? I only use it to cut pizza and dont have kids to worry about although knowing my wife she might pick it up the wrong way.
So ... should i put the sharp edge on it or not?

As long as it cuts your pizza it should be fine. No you do not have to make razor sharp, but make it some what sharp might be nice. I would use the stone to sharpen it and most importantly to get rid of those nicks.

You are what you eat.

No need for a razor edge on it. Those cut more through brute force than sharpness.
