Luke, I bought my CK cutters 3 weeks ago after meaning to buy some for the last 3 years. Mine are ratchet cutters with the anvil so as well as conduit you can cut YT2 and also YT3 plastic trunking. Tell you what, I rate them as an absolute MUST! I paid £15 + vat from WILTS wholesale.

I use these:

They're ratchet action and have a sharp, pointed blade so pierce the tube rather than squashing it which can make it impossible to get the accessory box on.

The button on the back makes the blade spring back, so you can easily use them one-handed.

bad points:
no YT2 adaptor (which most people seem to lose anyway)
they're a bit bigger than some so take up a bit more space in your toolbox.

I have 2 pair. One pair does 1/2 inch through 1-1/4 inch PVC conduit. The other pair does 1 inch through 2 inch PVC conduit. I'd never be without them on a PVC job. Burr free cut, square as can be, and super quick. No shavings to clean up, unlike a hacksaw cut. Excellent for underground repair work, if you're working in a ditch. Not as much overdigging required to get the ratchet cutters in.

Here's what the big pair looks like:
