Here is a picture of the face of the board I was using to just test out the plane. You can see the tracks on the right side near the edge. When I run my finger nail over the blade edge I don’t feel anything snagging my nail. I also don’t feel anything on the plane sole that would do this either. I retracted the blade as mentioned above and it didn’t leave tracks.

I am wondering if it is the way I am honing the blade that is causing this. I go side to side on one grit than I move up once I remove all scratches from the previous grit than switch to in and out on the next grit til I remove the side to side. I try to end up on side to side on the 2000 grit wet/dry paper.
