Derek - do you think that the low bed negates the difference in wear entirely between BU and BD? I'm guessing that in end grain cuts, there is more iron oscillation on BD vs. BU, but that's all I'm doing saying that - guessing.

In the end, you can use a 50 degree bedded vintage iron and if you're good at sharpening, the edge retention doesn't really matter.

However, I am applying a bit higher of a standard if I am going to spend 50 hours making a plane (potentially more) - it should incorporate anything I'm aware of.
