Highly suggest you inspect your current blades before buying new.

Verify they are standard 15L x 1W x 1/8TH found in most machines?
Some machines use 15-1/16 L blades.

There are also insert style straight blades (I.E. Tersa, Terminus, or Centrolock) that a commercial shop uses to have faster change over using an insert cutter head.

FWIW: Standard Taiwan planer 15” straight blades are ubiquitous in the market.
Easy to find. Many wood working supply stores stock them.

Some online sources I have used:

www.oellasawandtool.com

www.americannationalknife.com

www.holbren.com

carbideprocessors.com

www.toolstoday.com

etc, etc, etc

PS – Before you remove the old knives, check all current heights of in/out feed rollers to the cutter head, to ensure you return the knives to same relative position. Failure to measure first, will require you to reset all the roller heights and this increases the change over time. Might want one of these. to help with knife change.
