Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ingenious Idea Takes the sheathing off NMD cable like no other. Awesome. Cutting the sheathing after it is opened up is fair to poor. Stripping of wire is very good though you feel have to be careful when cutting through to not nic the copper wire. Bending the end of wire is very good but can improved to excellent if they made the little holes where you insert the wire of a harder plastic. All in all, I am very impressed. Usually would have to carry multiple tools to do what this one tool does. Very well thought out and for that - 5 stars. January 16, 2011
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by you get what you pay for the price is great .. but it just doesnt do the job, spend the money on a good quality one, i tried this product and was disapointed and never used it again December 11, 2008
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A safe and effective way to remove the insulation off NM cable (Romex) This tool works extremely well. Use it with training classes of 16 students to terminate receptacles and switches.This tool provides a safe way to remove and cut the insulated jacket form NM cable. Using utility knives cause accidental cuts to students fingers, but by using this tool it has stopped the accidents. It also works to remove the conductor insulation as well. Like the design work that went into making this tool. As a electrical instructor I recommend this tool for safe lab assignments. January 6, 2015
