They look like carpenter's tools rather than cabinetmaker's tools--for rough work with softer woods to plane them for fit rather than surface finish. Medium size for a guy who only wants to carry one to a jobsite for general purpose use. The casting and cutter of the one with the black handle look heavier than the brown handle.

"The Stanley Plane" by Alvin Sellens is a good place to start. The block planes in the bucket have the blade set at a higher angle (20 degrees I think), while a variety of planes for precision work on hard end grain have a lower angle (12 degrees I think).
