I pick it up when set to fine shavings. Dragging back seems to draw the shavings back which then causes the plane to ride on the shaving. Have to then clear the throat. Probably my technique as the tote tends to lift the nose when moving backwards.

Deep cuts are stiff enough that they don’t tend to ride under the sole. This is when I am really aggressive, so also am conserving energy by not lifting the plane (i.e.scrub and jack)

Haven’t really noticed any difference in wear on the blade sharpness. Dragging back should have a honing effect on the iron, so don’t see how it would hurt the sharpness.
