Best blades for scratchbuilding

Hi all,

I'm after some opinions or recommendations on what the best type of blades are for scratchbuilding - primarily for just cutting styrene sheets.

I've always used the trusty old no 11 blades, but recently I've been doing a lot of scratchbuilding and I'm going through these blades quite quickly. The main problem I have is the tips tend to snap quite easily and there not much use once this has happened so I'm guessing maybe a rounder blade would be better suited.

Any suggestions gratefully received, thanks and a happy new year to all.
