If this indeed is the case at large, then maybe the answer is simply to have a big roll of chain blade handy. Make up a new blade each time the old one dulls, and discard the old one.
For me, it isn't the money so much as it is I really can't afford for my chain to go dull quickly. I need a bit more longevity out of whatever I'm using to cut with.
Is having a roll and chain breaker stuff handy a good way to go to avoid short life spans of resharpened blades.
