Wire strippers are a hand-held tool designed to remove insulation or outer sheath from electrical wires. Though this function can be achieved by other tools, such as knives or pliers, purpose-built wire strippers are more accurate and require less effort. Wire strippers create a neat and tidy cut to reveal wires, ready to be soldered or have a connector attached. There are various types available from stripping the cable to cutting copper and conduit. Wire strippers are primarily used by electricians or mechanics but are equally at home in any DIY toolbox.
