Hi Ivan, welcome to Wood and Shop! You can check out our hand plane buyer’s guide here for an answer to your question: https://woodandshop.com/woodworking-hand-tool-buying-guide-handplanes/

Some other readers may be able to give you more brand names. But generally hand planes made prior to World War 2 were of higher quality. Many manufactures dropped the quality of their planes after the war (including Stanley).
