The back of the iron (blade) has to be flat in order to a) contact the base properly and b) hone the bevel evenly.

Plenty of videos in prepping a plane iron. The plane itself is going to need some prepping check the video mentioned above.
(Also for @Elden Cozort) Sigh -- I feel like I've just started in a school with more interesting classes than I can take at once while also working on two projects. But now that my plane is basically working I'll postpone wading into the finer blades points of prep and maintenance until further use becomes more immanent.
