    At $1100 bucks for that thing, I'll keep buying new blades in bulk through J-thomas. When they are dull, I'll sell the bulk steel for a pretty penny and buy some more blades.....

    I agree, I have used both and for the price I would buy another RBG in a second. I have used my RBG for 6 years, and have never had a problem with it. I have only replaced the wheel once.

    That Stack of Blades is Fresh From J-Thomas' Secret Warehouse @ $7 a Pop...

    My Guess is That 30-60 Seconds Labour to Sharpen & Balance is Worth More than $7 a Blade Over the Long Haul.....
