spear point router plane blades

Gary B.
I had some great UPS shipments from Lee valley lately which included their Small Plow plane, and router plane.

After some reading, it appears that the spear point router plane blade is meant for final smoothing of the recessed surface. The thing is, the blade itself is far from parallel to the recessed surface. It is angled down. When I try to use it, it hits a small area (say 1/4" instead of full width), and creates a furrowed surface instead of smooth. What am I missing?
