Hard for me to see the damage on your blades, but attached is a pic of a 710mm Radix I still use.
Similar circumstances.

Important place to check is the area of the blade that goes into the grip.Make sure there are NO cracks or stressed areas that can lead to a separation when spun up.

scuffs and nicks are fine so long as they're not through the CF and into the foam (or hollow core).

if you like, you can sand them out, and fill with CA or epoxy and rebalance


Me, I'd fly and forget.
