I had previously used the Clauss RCS-20 and was not completely happy with it. This tool, the Greenlee, is much better. Several features that put it ahead of the Clauss (which is now made by somebody else anyway):

1. Swappable guides. The tool comes with two guides, one for small cables and one for large. No special tools are needed: you use the not-yet-installed guide to remove the installed one.

2. Spiral-cut and long-cut modes. On the other tool, you have to push sideways on a lever which rotates the blade holder relative to the body of the tool, and then you have to hold it there for the whole cut. On the Greenlee, you rotate the body of the tool relative to the guide, 90' for long-cut and probably 30' for spiral-cut. The tool stays at that rotation when you let go as long as the guide is extended (which it must be if you have a cable in it). This stay-in-place feature is especially important in spiral-cut mode, where each rotation you have to keep letting go and reaching around the cable to grab the tool again.

3. Robust blade. The cutting blade is a good deal larger than the one in the Clauss, and the tool comes with a spare in the handle.

My place of employment recently "outlawed" open-blade knife use. As an electrician I was uncertain how I could do some tasks without my trusty knife...until they introduced me to this simple wonder. Now I wouldn't go back to a knife if they were giving them away.

Make sure the first thing you do, before you really need it, is learn to use this tool per the instructions. I watched several people break the blade on their first use by not using the tool correctly. And, of course, it was the tool's fault. Don't be that guy.

I used to fight my knife blade all up and down a piece of cable, slowing eating away at the thick insulation. But, with this tool you will exert little, to no, effort and it is soooo much safer than dragging a knife near your tender arteries.

- Adjust the blade angle for a circular cut, or spiral cut by moving it a few degrees. The circular cut will score a single cut around the diameter of the cable. This cut is for the ends of wire. The sprial cut allows you to remove foot after foot of cable insulation with ONE FINGER and almost no effort.

- Adjust the blade depth to match the appropriate thickness of insulation you are removing. You have a range of adjustment sufficient to cut right up to, but not into, the conductor. NEVER LOSE STRANDS BECAUSE OF SCORING AGAIN.

- What kinds of wire/cable can you strip? You are only limited by the capacity of the retainer hook around the cable, and the deepest blade depth.

- Tip: always keep an extra blade on hand. Don't get caught without this when you need it the most.

Bottom line, this is a rare find. It is more safe than the most commonly practiced method AND you will save a lot of time and frustration.

Highly recommend.

This is the best cable stripper I have ever had. Most that I've seen don't lock the blade in one direction. This one does and makes it easy to set the depth you want it to strip at so you don't cut the insulation on the wires below the outer sheath. There may be some less expensive cable strippers out there but this one is well worth the money to me.

Used the tool on high flex, 1/0 AWG, .56" OD, 600 volts, battery cable with synthetic rubber insulation. It takes only one rotation of the tool after setting the depth of the cut to accomplish the task.
