That is a good question. Keeping the blade clean can help with the resistance issues. Since dulling occurs slowly over time it can be difficult to notice. However, if you have a sharp/clean blade to compare it to, that may give you sort of an instant response. After I sent my wwIIs to forrest for sharpening, the difference was substantial. Now I wonder why I waited so long. Same can be said for planer/jointer knives. But, once you have sharp, you will know dull if that makes sense.
