So you've only used one a couple times, it doesn't sound like you were trained or read or viewed the instructions and you are dissing the tool. I also imagine the 18 in your handle is your age. I knew everything at 18 too. For instance, I once believed that a 1/4" drill would cut .250. The sharpest 1/4" bit in the world won't cut .250. It might be .238 or more likely .253 or 4, but you go on thinking what you want. Those of use that need exact diameter holes use a reamer.
We CAN get a a drill gauge and grind them, many of us have done it. I've been doing it since 1976. The Drill Dr or any of the Darex pro grade rigs do it easier and a lot faster as don't require me finding my glasses and the drill gauge and spending 5-10x as much time getting a sharp drill.
BTW- a chip only being produced on one side doesn't mean both sides aren't equally sharp. It means one cutting edge is longer than the other or at a different angle which is what many people get doing it freehand.
