Is it possible to straighten a blade or should it just be replaced.

Toss it away.

I'd agree.
Even if you got it straightened out, next time you hit something it might break. That could cost a lot more $ than a replacement blade, especially if someone was injured.

I know a man that tried that once on his MTD. The blade broke in half while mowing. Luckily the only fatality was a back tire. Mower blade are shear cut from mild steel then sharpen then shaped and the finial step to to heat treat the blade making it very hard. Mower blades are hardened steel and the crack when bent.

That what I thought. Just making sure before I tossed it. Thanks
