Thanks for responding so quickly!
This is you standard Hock replacement blade. Not sure of the blade thickness. But this blade is manufactured to be a replacement blade for Stanley's standard factory one. And the first thing I checked was if the yoke was engaging the chip breaker.
After I cooled down a bit I went out side and checked the 605 one more time. I removed the lever cap and blade assembly and checked the frog. It turns out that the frog was a bit too far back, and that the jack screws were loose. This combined to make the blade assembly lift from the frog just enough to cause a problem. After re-setting the frog, and then securing the screws it looks like the problem went away.
