If this is your first block plane, I would go for an adjustable low angle block plane. The adjustable mouth is
critical for minimizing tearout. For high figured wood, the bevel HELPS too.

LN 102 is an apron plane. I don’t own it and can work with my LV std. block plane. If you intend to do A LOT of trimming an apron plane is well suitable. Block plane not quite.
