Default What's the best blade for cutting curves?

Like the title says... I'm just looking for recommendations for the best blade shape folk have found for cutting curves?
Thank you

I actually use a S&M 15C but always want to try (and find) a rotative cutter with a pretty small handle.

Tried one. Thought it would be the answer to my prayers. Not so. Absolutely no control over it. A Swann Morton 10A all the way for me...

I've been trying a 12D - curved blade to a fine point and cutting edges on outer and inner curve. Really nice using the outer curve following lines and you stand it up when meeting a joint.
If you need accuracy, use the fine point for pinpoint cutting.

But blades are just a tool, and you need to use it with a good technique, practice that, and hopefully develop the skill set.

I've watched loads of vids and pro painters when they're cutting mask, using all kinds of different blades, and I've tried using same blade, the same way they do - still can't do it like them!
