Knipex launches American-style wire stripper

Knipex is famous for forging and the new American Style Forged Wire Stripper is designed to cut both solid and stranded wire. Based on research done in the American market they have some different features that set them apart from conventional designs.

One of these features is the screw cutting holes that do not have a thread, so screws can be simply inserted and cut - saving time an effort.

Locating ridges between the stripping holes make it easier to find the striping holes without looking. The wide knurled gripping jaws make twisting wires easy, and the induction hardened cutting blades that have 50% higher cutting capacity than other wire strippers.

The strippers can also be used left or right handed with equal ease and the internal spring makes for easy opening. A bolted joint ensures smooth cutting adjustment.

Forged from high grade steel and multi-stage oil hardened, the wire strippers are tough.
