    I just ordered a set of laser edge eversharp blades for my 72" gravely. They're supposed to be here by next Tuesday.
    I will report back on how they holdup and if they really keep an edge.
    Someone remind me in a week or so. Thanks.

    Put these on an employee mower and let us know how that goes.

    I tried to.
    The 52" are on back order.
    They just started to make them for Gravelys. As soon as 52s are available I've got 3 set's on order.

    Not sure, but omg it would be nice if these work even half as good as advertised.
    Probably go out to dinner with my wife.

    I just checked them out. Looks a little gimmicky to me. Would be pretty cool if they really work tho. How much was a set of those?

    $114 for the 72"

    If you understand metallurgy it's not gimmicky at all.
    Picture regular steel blade.
    It all wears the same, so it starts to round over and get blunt like a dull butter knife.
    But what they do is. Is basically harden the bottom edge only of the blade.
    Only a few microns deep, so as the normal steel wears down, that leading edge protrudes just a tiny bit always, because it wears slightly slower than the regular base steel.
    So like having a sharp butter knife always.
    We will find out.

    I wish they would work for me. Florida sand eats the blade fin away to nothing in about 3 weeks of use(in the summer) on my 60 inch mower so they would not be cost effective for me even if they held up an extra few weeks.
    I like this idea better than their competitors method of adherring a supper hard material to the underside of the cutting edge though.

    Can't do much with sand blasting fin off.
    I've got 3 yr old blades cutting edge is getting 1/2 inch from fin. But at least fin is still there.
