Description: These are extremely handy and comfortable to use wire strippers from Hakko. These are an essential part to any hacker’s arsenal and are able to strip 30AWG wire wrap wire nicely as well as the standard 22AWG hook up wire.

This is a very well maid set of strippers. My detest and I both love this tool. It goes through insulation of fine wires far better than front teeth do. Seriously, this is a fine tool. :) I’m only giving four stars because it doesn’t do well with larger wire gauges under #20. Recommended!
I’ve had the big clunky electrician’s wire strippers and they are horrible for small gauge wire, they don’t cut much of anything, they’re heavy, etc.
Reverse all those statements and you’ve got this pair of cutters. I haven’t cut anything bigger than 16 awg high strand count, but that’s pretty good. I’ve had these for several years and they’re still going strong.
My one minor complaint is the same as one of the other reviewers - minimum wire gauge is 20awg, whereas I routinely need to strip 16 and 18awg.
