Assuming your refering to auger blades. I think curved blades are on augers with more than one blade and straight or chipper blades are a single.

Yes I am. I was lookin at the eskimo brand but any would do so if you buy a new auger and both are available for the same price which is better

Here is my take on it. Chipper blades cut slow but last a long time before you have to sharpen or replace. Shaver blades cut very fast but need to be sharpened often or replaced often. If you want to save some cash, go with the chipper blade. If you don't mind spending extra money for resharpening, get the shaver blades. Thats my 2 cents!

I'm totally with JLM on this one... Shaver blades do cut faster, there is no doubt. Yet they can ice up and then they almost have to melt thier way threw the ice. Chipper blades hardly ever ice up and dont need sharpening very often.

I myself am a chipper kind of guy. So it takes me 10 seconds longer to get threw 2 feet of ice... big deal!

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
