Question Help me decide on a cutter

My perfect cutter is not so perfect anymore (is biting the tip instead of cutting it), will send it to make the lifetime warranty effective but...that made me start looking for a new one. After looking around these four stand out:

1.- Brizard: https://www.amazon.com/Brizard-Co-Do...s%2C159&sr=8-1
2.- Brizard: https://www.amazon.com/Brizard-Elite...s%2C159&sr=8-2
3.- Caseti Kukri: https://www.amazon.com/Visol-Caseti-...2s9dHJ1ZQ&th=1
4.- Sarome: https://www.amazon.com/Sarome-cutter...0452785&sr=8-2

Anybody has any experience with any of these? Can you recommend something similar?...trying to buy something not made in china.
I appreciate your input.

Tact is for people who arenít witty enough to use sarcasm...

If you are looking at spending that much I would suggest a Xicar XO cutter. Mine is as sharp as the day I got it over two years ago. Cuts up to 64 ring gauge and can fit in my pocket without having to worry about it opening up as I travel. Mine ran around 90ish at a local shop.

Not familiar with the cutters you listed.

I really like my Colibri SV Cutter ...
V cut one side
Guillotine cutter other side - much like Cuban Crafters Perfect Cutter in function

Good on you @zcziggy for looking beyond the standard Chinese fare! Unfortunately I donít know anything about the ones you listed, maybe Gary @Cigary will stop by and give us the lowdown.

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)

Looks like their about $20 cheaper on the website.
Ok that’s for the Elite 2 Series, the Elite is $5 less
