What I am thinking here , is a mild steel edge with carbides welded onto it. Since the carbides last a long long time, to extend the edge life. on a hardened edges or Abrasion Resistant material edge... Why wouldn't it work on a mild steel edge ? Would save a shytload of money on a blizzard edge for sure ! Its pretty easy to clamp the OE edge to a hunk of steel and drill the holes... nobody said you need carriage bolts to hold the edge on !
