A blade in a plane like that new is more of a kit piece. They form it at the factory, but that is it, they only mill or grind it in roughly because it is faster and cheaper than actually sharpening it. It’s all about saving a few cents here and there. It should not be all that amazing in our current economy, unfortunately.
