concrete blocks / bricks strength

What strength/density of concrete blocks do I need to match normal
bricks ?
I want to use some concrete blocks nearly up to ground level and only
use blue engineering bricks where they start to show.
Will the blocks I need cut OK with a block cutting guillotine ?

I've cut them (inplace) with a hand masonary saw, which went through very quickly. Apparently a wood saw works too for a while, but knackers more quickly (and probably wouldn't be much good for timber afterwards).

Unless you're building a high rise it is highly unlikely that you need high strength blocks. Thermalite/Celcon blocks can be used in foundations except in certain soils.
