I rarely use a block plane. Usually just for making small
chamfers if I don’t want to go to the trouble of clamping
the work. With a block plane I hold the board in one
hand and chamfer with the other.

I almost always reach for a #4 or a #5. I’ll use the #4
with one hand too sometimes though it gets heavy
to hold that way if there is a lot of work.

In terms of block planes, I love my old Knuckle cap
block planes. They serve just fine. The Stanleys
have a better design than the others like Millers
Falls because my pinkie doesn’t get caught in the cap.
