Tool is awkward to set up and use. Knurled depth adustment knob rotates too easily and changes depth of the cut as you are stripping the jacket. Results are either not deep enough to cut through outer jacket or too deep and inner wires are damaged. I used the Ideal auto cable slitter years ago, but was unable to find it, so I tried this tool. Had good luck with several Paladin tools in the distant past, but this tool is a bust. Since receiving and using this tool I have ordered an Ideal slitter and am extremely satisified.

XLP, Teflon, Polyethylene, Polypropylene and other insulations. Amazon's product
description is misleading in not stating this. Note as well that 2 replacement
blades for this tool are $16 as of the end of 2013.
I sent mine back and hope for a full refund.

If a tool with this design and limitations is for you, please search for +cable +slitter
on Amazon and you will find two knock-offs of this model from 10 to 16 dollars cheaper
(plus shipping) as of this review date.

Blade is not straight and it cuts a spiral down the wire. cheap chinese crap. No adjustment for blade position, no spare blade. Save your money and buy something else.

This cable slitter has one feature that you normally have to pay $100 for -- you can manually rotate the blade's orientation. Most of the cheap ones just want you to spin around the cable, then pull down the length, and the blade will rotate all by itself. Sure.

This one has a spring-loaded lever that keeps the blade oriented for around the diameter cuts. You do that first -- then re-orient the blade with the lever so you can rip down the length.

It also has a nice sharp "breaker" edge to encourage you to not cut all the way, just enough. Then break it open with the edge.

I used it on a .420 dia cable, after adjusting it down to it minimum depth, and gradually increasing the depth of the blade to the desired depth to cut the sheath insulation. It took a few moments to understand that after you circle the sheath that you have to hold the lever down constantly (which changes the direction of the blade) to cut the sheath down the length of the cable. Other ones I've used just swivel to accomplish this. Just as easy once you get the knack of it. Worked well!

Best one I have used! I am an industrial electrician in south Louisiana and when it comes to stripping and terminating wires I might do as many as 100 wires a day on occasion, many of which will be the same size. I like the manual adjustment of this tool. Set it on a scrap piece to get the depth set and then get to work. I have almost doubled my daily production since buying this tool. Other reviews may lead you away from this tool (This is a tool for actual TRADESMEN, not wannabes). Well made and designed tool!

This tool was well made and just perfect for the mechanical work I needed it for. Came in nice box. Greater quality. Comparable to the same tool my coworker bought at snap on but I paid half the price.
