Just a question - what are the odds of any of the blades breaking? I
had assumed that there would be some potential for a snapped blade (I
confess ignorance on the type you're proposing, I just know I've
broken blades on pumpkins before!) and that the number of them would
ensure that we weren't short at all. Am I out to lunch?
