When to buy a new prop, or recondition

I was looking for guidance on when a prop has reached the end of it's life. My prop I believe is the original, and the edges are looking a little thin. A blade got chewed up, & I am trying to decided if I should bother getting it reconditioned or buy a new prop.

I am not to thrilled w/ going w/ a folding/feathering, as I am spending all my time cruising and don't want one more part to try and order into a 3rd world country.

Thanks
