I purchased a scrub plane awhile back on ebay. The blade was in horrible shape and I modifed the camber to be lighter. The reason? I wanted an aggressive small plane but not one that took too deep a cut because I flatten and am not going for loss of thickness. I do that on my planer. I can go across the grain with it and then work with my Jack. There is no crime in modifying a blade to better suit a purpose. Even if it doesn’t make sense to you, it does make sense to the person modifying it.
