I’d be inclined to suspect the sharpening shop of messing
it up. It is possible it was dropped by an employee or
in shipping. I have seen teeth break off easily after a blade
was dropped on concrete. Initially there was some chipping
but then teeth broke off when I worried at them.

My experience has been that resharpening doesn’t affect
the durability of the tooth.
