Very often handplane soles are just not straight, if that is the case then one has to compensate like mentioned above.
If the planes sole is straight, it will most often cut a straight edge..
I found the front portion of the sole is very important. The front from the blade slot forward is often curved upward, or the area around the blade slot protrudes. When its like that, it will slope down the boards edge at the beginning and end. This becoming worse every stroke.
