I’d also put the Veritas BU Smoother on my consideration list as well. When it comes to smoothing flat sawn and quartersawn teak, do you feel one would give better results than the other?

The Veritas BU Smoother is a superb plane. On interlocked grain I use a 50 degree bevel for a 62 degree cutting angle. It is reliable and easy to set up.
