This knipex stripper cuts and pulls in line with the direction of the wire you want to strip. It is sharp,comfortable and has a manual adjustment for wire size. I use it when my automatic stripper is too big or the length of exposed insulation is too short for it to be used.
Anyone doing wiring or repairs in confined spaces would find this useful.
I have 2 other Knipex cutting tools and they are excellent. I rate their side cutters much higher than the Snap-on ones I have used.

In short, this tool either won't strip or will "ring" nick the wire. It's very sensitive to the angle of wire going into the tool jaws.

I needed to reach into two dozen electrical outlet boxes and strip some short 14AWG wires that are copper clad aluminum. Very important not to nick or "ring" the wire, because aluminum tends to be brittle and nicking it creates a very definite weak spot. Gouging or nicking through the copper cladding creates a place for the aluminum to corrode and later break.

I adjusted the jaw opening using sample wire and experimented with stripping.

First thing I noticed is that when you adjust the strip opening with the wire going straight into the tool, the adjuster is very sensitive - a small rotation of the adjusting wheel causes a big change in the jaw opening. You quickly go from not cutting through the insulation to cutting into the wire itself.

Second thing I noticed is that after you make the adjustment, the angle of the wire into the jaw during the stripping process must be maintained very precisely. If you angle the wire into the tool a few degrees in one direction, the cutter becomes loose and will not cut the insulation. Angled a bit the other way and the tool will grab, gouge and nick the wire. I tried it a few times in actual practice and gave up very quickly.

From one wire to the next, sometimes this tool would not strip and other times it would gouge the wire. I tried closing the tool jaws on the wire and simply rotating it to cut the insulation, and then tried to pull the cut insulation off with my fingers, but that did not work, because it's not possible to maintain a precise angle of wire entry into the tool jaws while rotating the tool.

These are great for larger diameter (single core) wire. You are more likely to cut individual copper strands of wire with this tool and it is better if you use automatic strippers (which work a lot quicker and are far easier to use on small gauge wire). I find they work best by holding the pliers fixed and acutally twisting the wire 360 degrees in the jaws. If you don't wish to sever the copper wiring by piercing the plastic sheathing too deeply, then it best to incrementally adjust the jaw opening until you reach the desired depth or use a small test piece to set the opening first. Then you can indeed use a twisting motion of the pliers to remove the jacket. It does take some practice and it is finicky and not very precise, but it still works as intended; with a little attention and care.

Tired of accidently cutting low voltage wiring when attempting to strip the ends of it? Most multipurpose wire crimpers/strippers/cutters do NOT have the stripping size for smaller wires. So you often end up cutting the wire itself when trying to strip it.

The Knipex 1102160 End-Type ADJUSTABLE wire stripper is comfortable, efficient and time saving. Just dial it up, or dial it down to fit your desired stripping diameter. It's worth the investment.

Stay Safe,

I bought these for stripping larger gauge wire (4awg-10awg). They do "strip" the wire but it takes a lot of effort and it makes the wire jacket look like crap. Tried different wire ranges and depth settings and nothing helped. I would rather strip a wire with these over a butter knife but not by much.

Better results were yielded using a pair of cable shears to lightly cut around the jacket and slide it off the wire.
