KNIPEX Tools Introduces Forged Wire Stripper


 December 4, 2020

KNIPEX Tools introduced its new Forged Wire Stripper (13 72 8 and 13 72 8) for stripping and cutting both solid and stranded wire between 10 and 20 AWG. The Forged Wire Stripper is equipped with several patent-pending features that set the tool apart from conventional wire strippers. The Forged Wire Stripper’s most unique feature is its screw cutting holes for 6-32 and 8-32 screws. The screw cutting holes do not have threads on them, so a screw can be inserted and cut, making it faster and easier. Additional features include: locating ridges between the stripping holes for easily finding the correct stripping holes without looking, wide knurled gripping jaws for twisting wires and induction-hardened shear cutting blades that offer 50 percent higher cutting capacity than other wire strippers on the market. The Forged Wire Stripper’s cutting blades are designed to cut individual wires, NM-B, BX/MC and battery cable. Other features for the KNIPEX Forged Wire Stripper include a lock that can be used either right- or left-handed, an internal spring for easy opening and a bolted joint for precise and smooth cutting adjustment. The Forged Wire Stripper is made from high-grade special tool steel that is forged and multi-stage oil-hardened.


 “With so many time- and labor-saving features packed from tip to handle, the Forged Wire Stripper has redefined what a wire stripper can deliver,” said Peter A. Grable, product manager, KNIPEX Tools. “The Forged Wire Stripper came from a great amount of research and observation of how tradespeople used their wire strippers in the field, and the result is a wire stripper that is meticulously designed to improve upon all facets of the wire stripping experience and make every worker’s job easier and faster.”
