Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by metalman Excessive gap between jaws
I splurged and bought this to install some electronics on a boat: many small multi-stranded wires. At $20+, it was more than I'd like to spend, but heck it's a Klein tool, I'll have it forever!
I was so disappointed when I used it. As it cut the insulation, it would bend the wire over and almost wedge it between the jaws. Closer examination revealed a significant gap between the jaws, probably .010-.015". I went to the store and examined the stock - huge variation. Some had the big gap like mine, and a few were very close, which is what I'd expect for a quality tool.
If you gotta have it, cherry pick what's there, and I advise you to walk away if you can't find a good one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Windedhiker Excellent product, and definitely recommend
I was looking for a wire stripper that would work for smaller gauge wires (28-30) and hesitated at first because i don't do a lot of wire stripping, but after using it, I now know why. I did not have this, and instead had some other cheap product. The ratcheting is smooth, the effort needed to squeeze to strip is really easy so if you had to do a lot of wire stripping, your hand won't get tired using this because the handle is soft, and the mechanism is made so you don't put a whole lot of effort in to using it. One of my favorite tools because it just plain works;

Took me forever to replace my craftsmen strippers, that had dulled and lost their spring. Glad I finally did and wish I would have sooner!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rander7808 Good wire stripper.
It is a good tool. I gave it 4 stars because it is difficult to strip THHN insulated wire with. However, that may have more to do with the insulation of the wire than with the tool.

Klein tools are among the best there is and I'm glad Home Depot sells them! The tools keep a sharp edge longer than the others. As they say, you get what you pay for.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aayan Does nt always work
It’s for extremely thin cables. Every time I used it, it always stripped some of the wire along with the wire-cover. For what it costs and what it does, I would not recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hoken An essential tool.
There is no substitute for having a proper stripper when working with very small gauge wire. This tool is very accurately sized and precisely removed the insulation from the 32 ga and 24 ga wires I needed to work with. I highly recommend this tool for anyone who needs to work with wire gauges smaller than 20 gauge.
