I don’t use the #1 very often, but when I do, I hold it like a block plane and it works very well and is actually a lot more comfortable than it looks. Look in the comment section

I like the number to for some small task. I wouldn’t start smoothing a table top with it, but hey, its just cool.

Everyone should have a #4 in my opinion (#4 size, doesn’t need to be a Stanley). A #3 is also nice, but the #4 should come first, unless you are very young, or very small built. Which I am neither.
