Your explanation of the single irons being found on the ground around the shop is appealing for obvious reasons (not least because it's funny and jibes with my own biases on the topic), but the little voice in the back of my head questions whether craftsmen would have wasted relatively precious tool steel that way in the late 18th Century.

Don't you think they would have been more likely to hang onto those for later conversion to other applications (wide/complex moulding planes, etc). For that matter didn't people convert single irons to double back then?
