If you put the standard socket head bolts in the spindle you may not be able to fold the blades fully back to go into the blade holder for transport. I do not know if it is on all blades but it is so with Edge 813 blades.

The button head bolts allow the extra clearance for the blade root to clear and fold back far enough so both blades will go into the blade holder.

The bulky ones were the original, and sometimes would kiss the roots of the main blades. People complained (although a swipe or two with a sanding block on the blade root solves the problem), so Mikado changed to the button head version for additional clearance with the blade.

I bought a 12mm one way bearing from Boca to use as a Grippy on the spindle as the Grippy only went to 10mm last time I looked into it.
