C.K Automatic Wire Stripper
Not for left handers
These wire strippers are, I'm sure, good at their job, but they are very difficult and awkward to use if you are left handed. Other wire strippers I've used in the past have been forward facing so have been equally useable by left or right handers. Although from the picture, I could see these operated differently before I bought them, I hadn't realised they were completely orientated for right handers. Instead of making life easier these just make what should be a split second job awkward and time consuming because you have to force yourself to do things the wrong way round.

Just want to add my 5* to the other reviews. Acurately strips 2/3c+e (outer and inner) in about 5 secs. Buy this and forget messing about with stanley knives. Wish I'd known about it years ago!
Haven't had it long enough to comment on reliability do 3* is just the middle,

Must have for efficient wiring
Saves so much time, even if you're handy with a pair side cutters/ knife etc.
Seems like a decent quality tool, moving components look like they'll last. Has some very well thought out features which make it extremely easy and efficient to use.
Strips almost all wire i've thrown at it perfectly, aside from some old cable, which i don't think anything could've done.
I would overall prefer it if the tool was a tiny bit bigger, or at least the wire cutting blade was a bit longer. Sometimes don't get a clean cut on the first go, but maybe I haven't got used to lining it up yet.

Saves so much time when I have a lot of cables to strip and terminate, I absolutely love this tool!
I've not had chance to use the crimping part of the tool yet, but it's worth the money for the cable stripping alone.
The cable cutting blade is o.k but I would not rely on it and only use this feature if my snips are not to hand.
Top tool by a top brand, I highly recommend buying.
