I own multiple planes from both LV and LN, all excellent products, and as has been said before, you won’t be making a mistake with either.

I was not a fan of the original LV block plane as it was a wider design, but the new model has gone to a narrower design which is easier for me to hold.

One plus for LV is the ability to get either A2 and/or O2 blades if you care about such things (LN is just A2, last time I made a purchase). For a block plane it’s less of an issue as the blade is small, so sharpening is not a major task.
