The last few plane irons I have restored, have the center of the edge worn away. Instead of a cambered effect, these were the opposite. The outside corners were sticking out more than the middle areas.
First few trips down the sandpaper, the corners are sharp. The middle of the edge? Not even touched. Back to the grinder and grind a new edge. Now the bevel is consistent acroos the edge.
Question is: Why all the wear in the center of the edge? It takes a lot of work to bring these type of irons back to make a shaving like this
Just not sure what the previuos owners were doing, to wear away the center of the edges.
