I've really enjoyed my new Honda mower, however recently my friend and I sharpened the blades and now its doing the most peculiar thing. Every other row I'm leaving a "mohawk" trail that the blade just seems to be missing. I took the blades off and had them checked at a local shop and they said they were sharp and balanced. Has anyone else had this problem. These are the quadracut blades.

Not familiar with Honda mowers or quadracut blades, since you refer to the blades in plural I am assuming you have more than one blade. If this is the case, it would appear that one side cuts slightly higher than the other - giving you the 'mohawk' effect.
Check to make sure the deck is level.
Check to see if there are any washers between the blades and spindle-mounts. Perhaps one side has a different size or amout of washers than the other side.
I would give everything a good looking over to see where the difference in height comes from.
Wish I could be more specific, but as I mentioned - I am not familiar with this set-up.
Good luck.

Actually, I figured it out last night. Turns out with these "mulching" double blades if you don't cut the grass often enough it has a hard time doing an "even" job. I decided to try mowing a couple times a week and that seems to have corrected the problem.
