Thanks for the advice. I'll try it, but I think I've tried all those things. Nothing to lose by trying again, I guess!

To sharpening your blade, I was told by customer service when I called about something else, move the blade up and down in a cutting motion while pushing the blade slightly toward the base. Make multiple passes quickly. I guess the metal parts rubbing against each other sharpens the blade. My blades cut cleanly because I 'sharpeni' them periodically. I have had my Tonic cutter for 3+ yrs,
