Thomas, There is a Gravely tractor forum. You might try a post there if noone here has the answer.

Thanks, Bob. I do use a gravely forum for the manuals. I'm thinking you have to be a member to post? Costs to join. Not that it's a problem. Just have to use snail mail to join. I will at some point

I've found Gravely used two different sizes, a two inch and a three inch knife. Three inch is same as a Cub I believe. Mine is the two inch. So if any of you know a source for a two inch knife at a reasonable cost, I'd appreciate knowing. Thanks

Gravely has them available, but they want $13.59 PER BLADE! No thanks, I told them. I got some NOS ones off eBay yesterday for $2 and some change per blade. Rivets also :-)

You can weld some material on the old ones and grind it to shape them? Or buy the steel flat stock and make them? Check craigslist search gravely.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
