As a long time user of the straight, yellow handled Klein strippers I was slow to change for a few dollars more. But, I'm glad I did. If you factor in how long these will potentially last if treated properly, and the $15 price tag it actually feels like...wait for it...Klein might be undercharging.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- THE CURVED HANDLE might not look like much, but having used the straight for so long I can report that the extra leverage and ergonomic feel makes a world of difference. Especially on days of heavy use.
- THE HOLES ON THE SIDE for bending solid wire, handy during outlet/switch installation.
- THE SPRING BETWEEN THE HANDLE stays on very well, even when stored loosely in the bottom of an overloaded tool bag.
- THE HANDLES ARE TOUGH, and haven't slipped off after over a year of daily use.
- THE SCREW CUTTERS are a nice bonus. They cover the two sizes you will most commonly find when installing outlets into wall boxes. It is fairly common to need to trim them down for one reason or another.

SOME TIPS ON USAGE:
- Never cut anything other than copper wire with these. Steel wire, even very thin, will nick the cutting blade and create a bump that you will feel everytime you use them.
- People who don't like this type of stripper typically make the same common mistake when using them. Holding the wire with their left hand, and attempting to rip the insulation off with only their right. I recommend holding the wire with your left hand, then clamp the tool down on the wire with your right. BUT, use your left thumb (while still gripping the wire with other fingers) to push the tool off of the wire in a straight motion with minimal effort. Reverse for lefties, obviously. Get this down and you will enjoy using these strippers much more, and your stranded wire will not be damaged by pulling the tool off of the wire, under too much force, at an angle.

As others have indicated, these Klein wire strippers are -the- strippers to have. I've used a few others before, but they don't compare with these at all. Klein makes some great tools and there's a reason they're so popular among tradesmen. This product is a shinning example of what makes Klein so great -they're well designed, functional and effective. You can strip wires like nobody's business with these things, they're razor sharp and very nice to hold in your hand. I love the curved handle and the comfortable grips, makes it much easier to use.

Get yourself a pair of these if you're in the market for a wire stripper, you'll be glad you did. Definitely worth every penny.

I agree with every other reviewer thus far. These are among the best strippers I've ever used. I've used them hundreds of times on the job and they never fail. Very comfortable and easy to use. There is also a pair available for larger gauge wire and they work just as well. A must have for any electrician, or just about anybody remodeling a house.

As a professional Union Electrician wire strippers are part of my daily use tools. Klein is my preferred brand... Although, I use other brands. I go through several pairs of strippers a year. I wear them out, abuse, and misuse them. If I could only have 1 pair of strippers in my tool kit it would be these. They are comfortable and and easy to use. Other straight handle strippers tire my hands after repeated use. I use these all day in commercial and industrial applications without hand strain. If you are weekender or professional I recommend these strippers. You will not be disappointed.

Look no further for a quality wire stripper. These are SHARP!, strip a variety of wires with little effort and best of all, the curved handle makes them a joy to use as it eliminates hand fatigue. Go to a store and hold a set in your hands and you will now what I mean. I love it when I have an opportunity to use these!!

Lets get right to it: these looked and felt great in my hand- I was really into em'. BUT- after a few months, my first pair started jamming shut after normal wire cutting. I tried doing a gentle tweaking of the allen at the joint to loosen them back up, but they went right back to hell after a few cuts. I decided that the pair i bought must have been defective, as Klein is so reputable. I bought another pair and they went right to the same hell after TWO WEEKS. Klein! If these are ONLY for stripping, don't put cutters on 'em! I dont want to pull out another tool when one should easily do the job! These strippers ought to strip AND cut for a long time... at this point I use the Ideal Reflex strippers, (rock solid, dependable,
only a few bucks more...) and I couldn't be happier!

Once I started using this wire stripper, I kept one of my old ones "just in case" this one gets misplaced, and threw out the 2nd old one. This wire stripper is quick to use. I used it to do the electrical wiring for a new bath and believe that it cut my time more than 1/2 in stripping all the wiring that I used (two 12-2 cable runs, four 14-3 cable runs, and two 14-2 cable runs to multiple switches, timers, occupancy detector, outlets, and light fixtures/fan).

I like it. You get a lot of lights that can wrap far and provide a good amount of light (on highest settings) for a long time with little heat or (relatively) little energy. Or, gentle soft light when you just need to see where you're going or, say, get ready for bed. The lights are a warm yellow, easy on the eyes and make everything in the room including skin look natural -- like a softly-lit restaurant on date night. The copper wire in between is attractive. There are a lot of settings besides the 10 brightness increments. Good price.

Attached mine with 3M gel mounting tape placed in teeny squares behind every 3rd or 4th LED.

What I do NOT like is the remote. First, as many have noted, it requires direct line of sight. I'm not sure exactly where the detection cone is, but it must be the size of a pin head. Sometimes I have to press the off button, without exaggeration, about 20 times in all kinds of random angles from about 6 inches away. Then I think I've found the sweet spot, but next time it's different and the hunt for the needle in the receiver haystack starts all over. I tested this extensively before mounting it, rotating in a 360 circle around the receiver, then height angles, and finally accepted it's random every time... And this is just to turn it on and off - nevermind switching between the many lighting modes. In perspective, it's a cheap product and I've already wired everything so not going to send it back, but if there's one thing that could improve this product, it's the sad remote detection.

One other thing on my gripe/wishlist:

Ergonomics... The remote has 24 symmetrical buttons all shaped and textured exactly the same.
