walnut may be a wood that does it more easily. But with the unicorned front edge, I see it on everything -even pine.

and long grain cocobolo. I think the shavings are taking some burnishing from the edge of the iron as they're broken, and maybe it's not a simple thing.

Maybe this kind of shine would be seen at low angle, but the tearout prevention isn't there to see it. Who knows. But I'd encourage anyone with a buffer or even the freehand roll (that I couldn't get anyone to try until they found out what the buffer does) to see if they can duplicate the same thing.
