I have noticed that there is quite a difference in blade life between (1) high-impact: giving the plane a running start and having high impact at the board edge, vs. (2) low-impact: ease the plane up to the board edge, verify you have a bite, and pull the plane through the cut.

I gather David is doing low impacr, and starting with an eased edge. Both might matter.
