Which way does a lawn mower blade face?

It's important that the blade's cutting edge follows the direction of rotation. The wings of the lawn mower blade will be oriented up toward the mower deck and any writing on the blade will likely be facing away from the deck. If the blade bolt comes with a washer, its concave side will be facing the blade.

Can you sharpen blades while still on mower?

Although you can probably do an okay job sharpening them while on the mower, there is no way for you to balance them on the mower. Even a small vibration from them can really wear things out on a mower over time. Take them off and sharpen them, that's the only way you can see if the blade is balanced.
