If you go bevel up I would recommend Veritas and CL810 is right about the blade interchange. I like a larger plane (#7) for cleaning up dovetails so I’d actually lean toward the BU Jack with a 25 deg and 38 deg. Unlike most others, I rarely use a block plane and like the #4-#7 size.

For bevel down I’d go LN (since you want something new). The newer Woodriver’s are pretty well reviewed though.
