I’d add another vote for the #4 over the #5. it’s lighter , and for smoothing boards will be easier on your arms.

as far as saws – I’m a fan of japanese pull saws, a duzuki for dovetails and ryoba for ripping/crosscutting lumber are a good combination.

as far as chisels – it depends on what you’re going to use them for.
