Look like? You mean in a photo they appear the same? Its Harbor Freight therefore they are not good blades. try this sources for nice Freud blades.

I suspect the steel of the HF blades isn’t as hard as that of other top suppliers like Freud, Infinity, Grizzly, and Holbren…though I could be wrong. New jointer blades are typically in the $15-$20 range, so aren’t overly expensive anyway, so considering how long it takes to reinstall and setup jointer blades, I tend to not take the chance on something like this.
