I wish you all the luck sharpening the blades. I ran into the same problem and needed new blades ASAP, so bit the bullet and bought new ones for around $30 on ebay. Best price I could find. However, there are services that sharpen in metropolitan areas that work a lot with knives. I called around and got a bid for about 46 cents an inch. Two 12.5 inch blades makes that price sound nice, but the dude wouldn’t do it while I waited, and the drive would have made up the cost.

If for any reason it doesn’t work out, I’ve heard that the hardened steel makes for great marking knives if you’re of the mind to put the sweat into cutting those puppies down.
