I've asked around but I've been told that the blades can only be made out of hardened steel the same used in knife manufacture. They say no one around her does that work.

I've looked on Ebay and the postage to Thailand is way more than the blades cost. I've not given up looking yet and have found one supplier that has similar blades but they're shorter.
I'd like to get the correct size of blade as it will assist in the discharge of the grass cuttings.
As for getting a Thai to do my gardening. I wouldn't let one walk my fcuking dog. They'd break it.

Why?

Surely you could use lower grade steel but just need to get the blades sharpened more often.

That is something I couldn't understand also. You don't really need a cutting edge as the blade is only 2mm thick. It's the speed in which it rotates that does the cutting. I may try again and try and find someone who will knock a pair up in mild steel just to see if there is a difference.
One can only try.

I realise that but no fcuking metal worker worth his salt wanted the job of doing it for me.
One said he'd do it in mild steel but he won't accept responsibility if shit happens. I can't see 'shit happening' so I'll have to get him to knock me up a couple o' pair.

Just get them made out of old leaf springs, they should last forever and can be sharpened to what ever level you want. The speed of the motor should whack the grass anyway even if you don't grind them down to even half sharp.

I can. Spinning a hand formed machete from a gasoline engine with probably zero balance sounds interesting.

Wear shin guards

Anyway, I heavily doubt thats made from hardened steel. Its gonna be mild.

Id buy a pair & import it.

They have to be sharpened otherwise they just tear the grass off and can also damage the roots by pulling at them.

Hense the issue of buying anything "good" in Thailand. Stuff like oil filters & small engine stuff can be found locally, easily, cross compatible, but specific stuff not so much. Most of the "good" stuff I buy, I have to do a real good check on availibity of spares.

Another reason I only drive Honda & Toyota cars & trucks.

Can you see any model or part numbers? Cause it's extremely unlikely those are made specifically for Honda.

Maybe I missed it but are the blades broke or something?

Cause this is a real easy solution right here.

Simple grinder & vice. Job done. Did it all the time on bushhogs & push mowers.

They've rounded themselves off at the end and the airfoil part of the blades is completely gone resulting in difficulty discharging grass out the back.
I have a Makita back-up mower but it's not power driven and my grass covers about 1 rai. Things are getting difficult.

Yeah I've thought about it but in reality chasing a lawnmower, once a week, ain't that bad. Takes me about 2 hours non-stop. With a non power driven one I'd do it over a couple of days if the grass is wet and long.

Unless you have the ability to case harden* using case hardening compounds, then no amount of heat treatment will increase the hardness of mild steel, due to its low carbon content (hence why it is called mild steel). Also these processes just harden the surface of the steel, so the next time you sharpen the blade you have just ground through the surface hardness of the steel.

* Other more exotic methods such as Nitriding would also achieve the same result.
