Dang it Kurt, you got me wondering, now. I will go try it tomorrow. I haven't been planing a lot of coinage metals recently, and maybe the durn thing was getting nicked and I just never noticed it or am remembering wrong. I do know that whenever I look at the "arn" in my Stanley planes after a bit of boat work, the edge has has a lovely crescent-moon shape, and you know how when you hold the iron "flat side up" at a certain angle to the light, it gets that sliver of light at the edge, that says "sharpen me, sharpen me!"? Well, that sliver is usually about the width of the centerline on a blacktop country road.
