Ok, I will buck the trend here. I tend to reach for my #3 sized planes the most. I do have large hands, but there is just something i like about the #3 size.

And really, a 1/4” more in blade width? Not that much is it. The #3 tend to be just a hair less in weight, makes a bit of difference at the end of the day.


Yes, I do have a few of each, just prefer the #3s more. And yes, I also keep a few block planes around.
