Block planes were not designed for end grain work BUT detailing work. There is a misconception. IF for some reason I’m in the field and the only tool I have at hand is a block pane, well, I’ll try it for endgrain work. But that is not the task the tool was designed for.

Much more mass is required and the help of devices like the “shooting Board”. The Mitre plane is the right tool for that task, history can’t be wrong!
