Anything Knipex will be better than anything else, but it all comes down to personal preference.

Yes. Absolutely.

Even as a fan of Knipex myself, to say that anything they make is better than anything else is kinda crazy. There are other great companies out there.

I think you are right. Pocket cable stripper is greenlee's name for it.

From what I have seen there are a few different "flavors" of this tool, and most companies have sold all of the versions at some point, so picking a brand isn't that relevant in this case.

I use the snapon/bluepoint one:


I'm a robotics tech and I love this tool because I work with a lot of small diameter, flexible multiconductor. My suggestion is to get one that strips the smallest minimum diameter. You don't really need it on cables larger than .750" really. I feel like the cable range on the greenlee one was larger which makes it less useful in my opinion.

Also I think the Paladin version of the tool I posted is much cheaper, FYI. Same tool different sticker.
