I also use the fingernail test. I’m cuttin’ wood, not doin’ surgery (unless I’m careless).
I guess that I’m in the school of “form follows function”. Honing to a .000005 micron edge is fine for some but, if the plane does the job well, I’m a happy camper.
Kinda like havin’ the TS top and plane sole flat within an unobtainable thousandth of an inch.
