Just to mix it up a bit. If I were going to buy just one new metal plane to start with and budget were not the prime driver, I really think I would get one of the skew bladed rabetting block planes such as the LN 140 or the Veritas version from LN. They are such versatile things. The only down side is that they are a bit harder to sharpen for new users.
