These are my new favorite hand tool. I have owned them for 3 weeks and along with my Lineman’s and Diag’s these are a great addition to my pouch. I would describe them as versatile adding more ability and functionality to my everyday work routine. The multiple functions of this tool reduces the need to carry 2 separate tools reducing pouch weight and clutter.

Excellent quality, as is typical from Klein Tools
The quality of the forming and machining on these pliers is excellent, as one would expect from Klein. The action of the pivot is very smooth, right out of the package. The first thing that I look at in a pair of pliers is how tight the tolerances are at the tip, and the grooves at the tip on these mesh to the point that there is absolutely no light visible through them, which is quite impressive. The molded handles are very comfortable, and especially nice when using these to cut machine screws. Stripping with these was a little awkward at first, as the tool that I've been using I have had for years, and I am very familiar with them. It seemed like the stripping holes were all a little off in diameter - either slightly nicking the conductor, or not fully cutting through the insulation - but with very little use it was stripping to perfection. A very slight change in technique is probably what it took. I stripped all gauges that this tool covers, in both solid and stranded. Looping solid conductors with these is much more of a joy than with the stamped-metal strippers that I'm used to, due to the far-superior strength and rigidity at the tip. As is cutting machine screws with these, though they do seem to leave ever-so-slightly more of a burr at the end of the cut thread than my others. With the inclusion of the crimper on this model, that is now one less tool that I will have to carry in my main bag. In summation, I am very happy with these pliers. They have instantly found a spot in my main tool bag, and I foresee getting years of use out of this high-quality, USA-made tool.

Great All in One Tool!
I've owned wire strippers before, but that's pretty much all that they did and it required me to reach for reaching for multiple tools to perform a wiring job. This tool does everything that you need to perform most wiring tasks. The strippers work great and easily, I tried a few different gauges of wire and it performed well on each. The great thing about these pliers is that it doesn't end there, the long nosed pliers work great for bending wires to install around outlet screws, cutting the wire, crimping connectors, as well as cutting screws that are too long, like I said, making it unnecessary to reach for another tool. The grip is large and very comfortable in your hands, and the tool is made from forged steel, so it should last for many years to come. I own several Klein Tools products and I don't have a single complaint about any of them, these J207-8CR are no exception!

Great quality multipurpose pliers
Just got these pliers and I love them! From now on, these will be my go-to pliers for most jobs. Klein Tools calls these Multi-Purpose and they’re not kidding. They have many features, are of high quality and well balanced. The handles are comfortable, provide a good grip and are made from textured rubberized plastic. Although they don’t feel soft to the touch, they do have a slight softness when pressed on with a finger nail. The description of the product says it all and I will confirm that they do strip 10-18 AWG solid wire and 12-20 AWG stranded wires. They do perform all these functions well. I stripped a few wires and sheared a small bolt in half without any difficulty. The long nose pliers are great and the addition of the crimper is nice to have. Wish they had a spring and latch like their smaller version, but can’t have it all. Perhaps in the next version.. Total length from tip on the nose to the end of the handles is almost 8.5 inches. They are made from forged steel for maximum durability and are proudly stamped “Made in USA”. In my opinion this is a tool that could last a lifetime. I highly recommend it!

The best All in One tool for Electrical & Electronic Technicians
This is the best All in One Tool for Electrical & Electronic Technicians I have ever seen. It is made of very durable and sharp forged steel and it will be good for many years to come. This All Purpose tool is the perfect combination of wire stripper, long nose pliers and a crimper. It is a money and space saver: many tools in one. I do recomed this too to all Electrical & Electronic Technicians.

Quality Pliers
Klein Tools All-Purpose Pliers with Crimper is a really nice pair of electrician's pliers. Klein is known for their quality and you can see it in this tool when you work it and its in your hand. The mechanism is well-made and the action smooth. Its larger than other one's I have at eight inches and has a good long business end with grooved jaws for holding and looping wires. The pliers have a solidly set pivot action so the jaws will not twist when closed and holds everything securely. It has incorporated a hardened wire cutter and a screw cut off shearing tool in the body. It will strip wires 10 to 20AWG, the most common sizes. If you have a lot of wire striping to do this one doesn't have spring action. Below the wire cutter is a good crimper for lugs and terminals. The handles are covered in plastic and the overall size is right for medium size hands and up. I have other Klein tools and they are the best I've found in both quality and functionality. You pay more, but the only time you'll want another one is if you lose it.

I purchased a copy for myself, I also purchased a copy for my older cousin. I showed him my copy and he was hooked !! Klein Tools also makes another pliers, the J2158CR, Gray Handle Grip, Linesman Pliers. I purchased them for a job January 2020. These were very handy light pliers, I didn't need to carry my Klein Tools Linesman Pliers J2000NE-CRFT, as I was helping hang awkward ceiling lights, @w a 12ft. ladder. I used the crimpers, to grip, twist and bend the hang wire as to not cut it before I was sure of the proper length.
