CableKnife claims the title of the “world’s best hand held cable stripper” and looking at the prototype, I find it difficult to disagree with this label. You might be thinking to yourself, “well, do I even need to strip the cable? Some supplier will buy it as is.” And this is true but you may not know that stripping the insulation from copper cable increases its scrap resale value by up to 350%. So by keeping it on, you could be just making less than a third of what it is really potentially worth. Other forms for removing the installation is pricey and dangerous using a box cutter or even fire (yea, people are crazy) to remove the coating.
Removing the insulation from copper cable increases its scrap reclamation value by up to 350%. Some people burn the insulation off, this is illegal in most areas as it releases dangerous toxins into the environment and most scrap yards either don’t accept it or offer a greatly reduced price for burned copper.
Some people have large expensive stripping machines but these don’t fit into a tool box very well!
For everybody else there is CableKnife.
