My first handplane experience several years ago was with a No. 5. The size is perfect and, as Russell indicated, longer planes will give you an easier experience (because of the mass) and will give you a little more feedback (it’s easier to know when something is flat). Those are the planes you use to replace a power planer.

But congrats on taking the plunge. Warn the wife now that you’ll need to be getting some more tools….a lot of them.
