The 13 72 8 Forged Wire Stripper is the latest innovative product from KNIPEX Tools. Designed specifically for the US market, the new tool strips 10 to 20 AWG wire, both solid and stranded. The most exciting innovation of this tool is the non-threading screw cutting feature. Simply push the screw in and cut. It can also cut screws from the front or the back. Some of the other patent pending features include locating ridges to make it easier to find stripping holes, shear type blades for cutting NM-B, BX/MC and battery cable, and a lock that can be used either right or left handed. This durable tool is forged from high-grade special tool steel.
