GB, if you have the time, read this article I wrote on the Custom Planes. It is really about plane design, and how to get the best from them:

The HNT Gordon planes are finished better than Mujingfang. Different class. It is like comparing a LN and a Stanley.

The PM-V11 #4 blade can be used in the LN – the chipbreaker is the limiting factor. Only the LN chipbreaker works in the LN. There are Stanley-replacement PM-V11 blades. I use a #3 in my LN #3. These are thinner, but that is not an issue – simply move the frog forward a smidgeon.
