Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feel really strong and well made - seem as good as much more expensive options - too early really to comment on reliability but looks likely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap and cheerful Bought these for a few quick wiring jobs around the house instead of mucking about with pliers and penknife. At the price perfectly good for this. I would probably spend more money if I was a pro but so far these seem more than good enough for occasional use.

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
