Rothenberger Automatic Tube Cutter 28mm
Rothenberger worth the money
Having had a couple of pipe slices from other manufacturers, i decided to go for Rothenberger and whilst they are more expensive, the quality is so much better. They are really light and cut through pipes so neatly compared to others. Feels like it will last for years.

Buy Cheap, Buy Twice
I bought a 28mm unbranded pipe cutter from an online vendor. It made one cut with difficulty then broke on the second cut, forcing me to have to pop to Screwfix mid-job for a new one.
I am surprised by how lightweight the Rothenberger cutter is. The blade felt sharper and it cut a painted pipe with no difficulty. Not only that but I noticed there was no pinching on the pipe, whereas using the unbranded one had pinched, tracked even and struggled with the paint.
You might be able to find this item cheaper elsewhere, but Screwfix stock this item in store and they have always given me an excellent service.
