Statistically, it should be about the same for both blades after so many cuts.Problem I see here is wooden base. While you do control load caused by manila rope, affects of wooden base is more or less random, but impact wood cause on edge is harder then manila rope. Speed, force and part of edge which hits wooden base after rope was cut, most likely not under control.
Can you make some gadget similar to what I uses to make sure that it is only rope what affects the edge?
Both blades would have, on average, the same amount of certain types of cuts. For example 50 cuts with a 10+ degree angle off, 100 cuts wit a degree between 5-10 off and the rest of the cuts within a range of 0-5.
Most probably a normal distribution...
The same for other factors such as force to wood when the cut went through the rope, slicing speed, angle etc
