Check the screen area swept by that part of the blade.There might be some sort of crap cutting the blade.

I always use wipers from places where stock gets used quickly. The rubber used these days on cheaper blades is basically crap and splits in no time, especially if it's been on the shelf for a while

I've used blades from Lidls for several years & find the performance & lifespan very good.
