i think all mine are kopex
the only part needs changing is the cutter wheel.

i know that there are some cutters that you need to turn about 30times to get a cut all the way through, are the blades easy to change?

Yes just undo the centre screw and the cutter splits in half remove/fit new cutter.

Kopex are good, I also like the Bahco ones, blades are easy to change in either but can vary in size so you need to make sure you get the right ones

For the past year the fail rate on the spring mechanism has been horrendous not even lasting 2 cuts .They said it was was only cutters bought in twin packs that where affected but also had the problem with single pack 15mm.
