Earlier today you wrote, "However, I remain skeptical about the difference in dulling of heartwood vs sapwood". I gave tulip poplar as an example of a timber with different working characteristics between heartwood and sapwood.

You wrote five paragraphs to say that you had never noticed the difference between sap and heart in poplar. When we work with hand tools we notice this kind of thing.
