I have three planes of which the only one I have a sharpening problem is a Stanley low angle block plane. I didn’t understand its limitations until I bought a Veritas edge trimming block plane and saw a huge difference in the shaving characteristics between the two when trimming end grain. I am pretty confident in the sharpening process I use with my water stone set, so I wonder whether it is either a bevel angle difference or the quality of the iron. Any thoughts are appreciated, and if the quality of the iron could be the issue, suggestions on a replacement would be helpful. (It would be nice to have an new excuse to buy a tool as well).
