You will need a second blade with an 8” camber …

Then you can hog off thick shavings ..

When you do so, plane either across the grain or diagnonally to it. Then you will not need to be concerned about tearout, and can use a 25 degree bevel.

The alternative to this is to purchase a cheap Stanley #5, and camber the blade on that.
