These blade will do the job. Over 30 years of being a professional model maker have used 10A blades continuously and I have have notices the quality has gone down gradually but surly.
They are more brittle and dull quicker which means a quicker replacement, the price has been stable for some time now so it is a toss up.
10a blades I have found is the best all rounder blade for the use of cutting plastic card etc.
