The fixed blade would give a faster blend. The wire one is too wipmy on ice cold butter. I tend not to use them, I will cube the ice cold butter and blend on the mixer with flour until sandy in texture.
I do occasionally use one and it has stiff blades no swivel handle and I use it to avoid cleaning the cuisinart or when I'm without electricity....or when I just feel like I need a stress reliever.....
