Those are just fine.
The fancier type have replaceable blades but, for the price and the fact you are using it on very small conduits, justifies getting the low end tool.

The cheap ones work really good give them a try, I had a pair.
I use to do lots of pvc.
The ridged one always get screwed up with the spring in them. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

I personally prefer the ratcheting klein. I did break the blade sometime ago and have not yet purchased a replacement (pricey!).
The ones that are at the home depot are more suitable for liquid tight. If they have the rigid ratchet style you would be better off.

Ive had the brass craft from HD, and I currently use the Kleins. My old boss bought me the Kleins, ($80), which are good, but not worth the money. I would buy 2 of the $7 ones, in case the get lost or the blade breaks.

I've had the Klein ratcheting cutters for a few years now and like them. I haven't even had to replace the blades yet, they're still sharp.

I highly recommend them, I think I cut mine into some rebar! They work smooth.

We just buy a bunch of the cheapies and hurl them when they break.

Look closely at the three difference tools in question!

Note the tools that have the cutter attached to the ratchet, verses the
handles, it makes a big difference. the cheap one is junk!
