Normally tooth crumble is the result of too much swage left after sharpening. This can be helped by adjusting the die lever in the swage or by adjusting the anvil. It is common for the center of the tooth to chip or crumble if the top of the cup is too close to the top of the tooth... or you could try chalking before swaging.
