Observe tear-out. Bevel up planes have a low center of
gravity so they are technically easier to use in jointing
because the shifting of weight is easier. They tear-out
when the grain reversed though. This can be mitigated
by back-beveling the irons (Brian Burns wrote a booklet
on it called “Double Bevel Sharpening”) and raising the
effective pitch of the cut closer to a scrape.

In general I prefer a standard bench plane to a
bevel up. They are more flexible and forgiving
in their way.
