    What's the best pipe cutter to cut copper pipe

    It's a 'C' shaped hand tool, pair of rollers at one end.
    The other end has the wheel cutter on a threaded rod with a knob.
    Line it up with the mark and tighten. Go around a couple of times and
    tighten the cutter again and again and again. . . . . . .
    Fat flip out Vee-shape to carve off the little burr on the inside rim of the pipe.

    My only advice is to buy a good one from a real plumbing shop.
    They cut better and last longer.

        Depends upon pipe size. I have a cute little one for 1/4" and 3/8" copper tubing.
        I have a bigger one which covers 1/2" to 1". Broke a cheap one, went to an industrial supply for the big one that I've used for the past 25 years. (Rigid?)

          Any pipe cutter will work as long as the wheels are sharp. If you have a choice buy one that's made in the USA or Canada. The problem with some off shore tools is that after you make one or two cuts they start mushrooming out the end of the pipe. Ridgid, like RV suggests, is a good brand.

            If you only cut a few pipes get a cheap one. If you have a lot to do it is a good idea to invest in a solid one. the cheap ones will go out of alignment quick. I think the axle bends.

              think this post would be better in off topic
