I recently learned how to properly hone my bevel down plane irons. I know there are many methods to this and I spent some time reading about many of them and I think I am at a point where I understand and am comfortable honing the bevel down planes.
However, I was wondering if there was a different method I should use for my bevel up plane irons. These would be for my block planes. With my bevel down planes I will add a secondary bevel and then a third micro bevel and then hone the burr off the back. With the block plane blades should I do those the same way or should I be doing something different because of it being bevel up?
I know there may be many different opinions on it. I am just curious what others do.
