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 a snap-off blade cutter with superior glass-fiber-reinforced Polypropylene conjoined with Elastomer grip. That means you have a better holding of the cutter and there is a minimal risk you slip your fingers. Also, it's very handled for prolonged hours of work - the grip is much comfortable for your finger muscles.
How about the blades consumption? Well after more of a 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
