Throw-away blades are usually such that they won’t index properly if they are made any smaller by sharpening. That said, if you can adjust the height of the blades to where they are supposed to be I don’t see why they can’t be sharpened. You can either pay someone to sharpen them or use something like a Tormek or Jet wetstone sharpener with the planer blade jig.
