Edge trem issue

Hey guys, so both of my trems (Edge, and Edge Lo Pro) seem to go out of tune when I dive bomb, and then get corrected when I pull up on the bar to sharp. So it seems like my trem isn't returning to pitch but only one way. My knife edges are lubed, so I don't think that us the issue. You can sharpen knife edges right?

Mine seems to go out of tune alot too, so this is what I do. I have found that if I tune my guitar by loosening the locking nuts and then fine tuning the guitar then and play it for a few hours, it works ok. When I then go back to the guitar the following day and tune the guitar just using the fine tuners the guitar refuses to stay in tune! I then retune the guitar by unlocking the locking nuts and retuning the guitar, then locking the nuts back up and fine tuning afterwards, the guitar then stays in tune! All the other Floyd Rose trems including the liscensed trems I've owned didn't have this problem and would stay in tune perfectly well if I only used the fine tuners to retune. Very strange! It's an expensive trem and it's left me dissapointed to say the least, especially as the cheapy trems stayed in tune after a great deal of abuse! Still, it works much better if retune the guitar using this method.
