Through the last decade we find out there are two types of hobbyists. One prefers cutters and the other xacto knives. It's just about personal preferences and habits.
XA-1 is snap-off blade cutter with superior glass fiber-reinforced Polypropylene conjoined with Elastomer grip. That means you have better holding of the cutter and there is minimal risk you slip your fingers. Also it's very handle for prolonged hours of work - the grip is much comfortable for you finger muscles.
How about the blades consumption? Well after more of the decade using this cutter (and yes, I'm still using the one cutter I've bought years ago) I change the blade sheet (each sheet contains 12 snap-off blades) one or two times per year. And all the time you have razor sharp tool.
Accessories - 9mm blades
ASB - standard-duty replaceable blades in a plastic case
SAB - sharper angled blades in a plastic case
- ASBB - ultra sharp standard-duty blades in a plastic case
