    Unless they have changed something the hondas usually use 2 blades. They are seperate. So its just like any other blade to sharpen.

    I have seen some really funky ones that have 4 blades on a single piece of steel. I think I told him to take that POS back where he bought it or get a new blade.

    Yes, I'm getting tired of all the blade configurations. Seems to me all it does is weaken the already thin blades. I think the old standard strait high lift blades are the best.

    Yeah, this one is 2 pieces off one steel... seems pointless to me, but I never ran into a blade like these before. Guess we'll see where it goes..

    What a crock. That system is no better than the other double blade system we already know about. And it might be worse.

    It's the same twin blade setup. Unbolt the blades, sharpen, balance, and install the blades.
