A model describing the retraction kinetics of a fully faceted edge of a single crystalline thin film deposited on a non-wetting substrate is proposed. The kinetics of retraction is very similar to that of a fully isotropic film. The calculated topography profile of the edge exhibits a single maximum and no local minima (depressions). The implications for the solid-state dewetting mechanisms are discussed.
