X i've been climbing/cutting less since 2008 but still notice the blades get dull quicker. at ~30 hrs a week i hope that still counts.

yes, you have to realize when I say a Silky blade is not sharp anymore, it still cuts better than the brand-new fanno. I just like razor-sharp for the cleanest pruning cuts I can get.

I get a tingle up my spine when I make my first cuts with a brand new silky blade. Almost a religious experience!
 
I've had my Sugoi for about a year now and am just about to change the blade. It still cuts conifers pretty well, but I can definitely notice the need to replace it when dealing with cherry, maple, etc.
With that said, it was still able to give me a pretty nice puncture wound on my finger when putting it back in it's scabbard yesterday. Lesson learned.
