This is my go at the Krenov style plane. This is now the best plane I own ( I dont own that many).
If your thinking of getting your first smothing plane I recommend making your own. My first smoother was a vintage Stanley and this blows that away. Its all about the Hock blade. You’ll only pay about $20 bucks more and you’ll end up up with a far superior tool in my humble opinion. Not to mention the satisfactoin of making it yourself and customizing the shape to fit your hand.
Wallnut is probably not the most durable wood for this application but I can always re-sole it later.
Hope you like it,
