This is one of those “feel issues”. The 2 planes should cut the same, but the will feel different in the hands of the user. The bevel up will have a lower center of gravity. I’m more accustomed to the bevel down and, for me, the bevel up does not feel quite right. OTOH, the versatility of the bevel up is quite appealing.
