Do yourself a favour and get a low angle smoothing plane from Lee Valley.
Low angle why?? We use chisels bevel up, why wouldn t we use hand plane blades bevel up?
Just my 2 cents worth.

Interesting concept, I started with a LV/Veritas small bevel up smoother
Because it could do the same functions as a block plane (although one hand usage is clumsy and not realistic), and be used as a smoother for the faces of boards, flushing dovetails, and shooting. If you are only ever going to get one plane, the small bevel up smoother makes a nice gentleman’s plane. Or in the longer run it is a nice small and light bevel up bench plane.
