Default doesn't take an engineer to figure the reduction of speed and power on the first strike would prevent the 2nd and third blades from penetrating the same distance...if at all...
Look at the photo closely. That is exactly what we see there, each blade is progressively less imbedded in the stump.

Doesn’t take much to snap an aluminum blade off of an outboard prop.
