Multi-cutter blade blunt in 1 day. Bad blade? Bad Technique?

1

I recently bought Dewalt's Oscillating Multitool. (DSC355) It came with (amongst others) a wood blade and a "wood with nails" blade

Today I was using it to replace wooden brick in a parquet floor. It involved slicing down between bricks to cut the dowels that hold each brick into its neighbour, then cutting an angled slot into the brick so that I can get a flat chisel in to get the brick up.

There was a little bitumen on the undersides of the bricks, but I was trying to avoid getting into that with the cutting blade.

After about 2 hours of intermittent cutting, I realised that I was no longer actually cutting with the teeth of the blade, but was in fact burning a slot into the wood - there was smoke coming out of the slots, not wood dust!

My name is S Das [protected]. I purchased a Glenn GL 4052 SX from Maharashtra Electronic Corporation 215 M G Rd Pune on 9th July 2011, but we were surprised to find some of the blades including the main chopper to be totally blunt & not usable. We were asked to contact the service centre Mr Jadhav at Katraj service centre ,Service centre person has inspected the same & has agreed that the same needs replacement & till last 30 days there is no action. Now the service dept is informing us that they only can sharpen the blades & return, but for that we have to deliver the blades at service centre & pick it up when it is ready. My question is that if I have bought a new machine why we should get an old blade. Our request to the company is the following :
