Forge Steel Wire-Stripping Pliers 160mm is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't hesitate, buy now. I've struggled for many years to strip cable using sharp blades and pliers but recently I had the foresight to buy a dedicated tool for the job. So instead of risking injury and frustration taking ages to complete a simple task I used this tool to achieve the desired results in moments. If you have wires to strip buy now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb item Lovely handle grips, works very well and effectively for stripping wires. Made a heavy handed tree surgeon look like a pro.....kinda.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Strips most wires with ease. The very thinnest can be a bit more tricky but fine if careful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic strippers Needed to strip door wires (11 small wires) on my Zafira. This is a fantastic item as can be easily adjusted to the correct wire size and it worked a treat + plus normal great service from screw fix :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose This tool simply does not do what it is supposed to do. They are not sharp enough and after about 30 attempts I found that the jaws had begun to separate from each other. They now have a gap of more than 1mm between them so the cables I now try to strip just bends. I imagine this was cause by me pulling the cable rubber, but then that is part of the necessary action of stripping a cable. Don't waste your money. I've learned my lesson on going cheap on a tool that requires precision and durability. Buy a more expensive professional one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bargain I rewired a whole living room using this and as long as you set the tool properly (which is not hard) its amazing. Especially if your only going to use it once and dont want to spend to much money.
