It’s going to depend on how deep the rabbet/dado/whatever is. I’ll measure the overhang on mine tomorrow and let you know. I’m thinking it’s 3/4”-1” or so, but don’t hold me to that.

I went with the O1 blade. I’ve got oilstones, so they aren’t as agressive as waterstones. The O1 seemed a better choice for that. The A2 should hold an edge longer, but I’ve had excellent durability from the O1. In either case, they do a great job of lapping the back of the blade. Mine was perfectly flat.
