I am going to go out on a limb and suggest not to even bother with a #3 or smaller and just use a block plane. Same width, same length, same ability or better to close up the mouth. Now if you are collecting, that is a different question. If collecting, I say go for a particular style. Maybe all low knobs because they look much cooler.
