Cable wire stripper

A wire stripper is a tool designed to remove the protective covering (jacket) off of a cable to expose the inner wires. Because different wires come in different shapes, there are dozens of different wire strippers available. The wire stripper in the image works by placing a wire between the blade and the holder, and then it is spun around the cable until the cable jacket can be pulled off.
