A tale of two miter planes

Two miter planes, one bevel down and one bevel up. Both have a 35º cutting angle. Weight difference between the planes is a bit over half a pound (woodie is heavier). Blade widths are 1 3/4” and 1 1/2”. I don’t know how to compare them since I use them for different things, the metal one mostly as a low angle block plane and the woodie as a shooting board plane or with-the-grain smoother/jointer. And I don’t need to compare them, after all, you can’t have too many planes, right?
