Looking at the iron, you should relieve the edges or camber it. Unless you plan on using it to work stock that is smaller than the iron. It’ll leave tracks.

Is it best to do that before I sharpen it? What is the best approach to giving it a camber: using one of the stones or a little lapping on a high grit sandpaper, something else?
