Been using these new extra hard blades, haven't overly noticed much difference in edge quality, but they definitely last a lot longer.

 

Must of been rubbing it along the curb too much and the blade heated up and folded over at the tip and the rest is history, my local supplier just sold the last on a week ago, just my luck.

The blade on it in the photo was the offending mongrel, It had worn back to normal by the time I took the photo at the end of the day.

Got a new guard the next day and replaced it.
