This arrived yesterday and I would give it 4-star approval.

1. Price €13 (available on Amazon)

2. Not made in China

3. 24 - 10 AWG range for the hobbyist/maker is just fine

4. Despite what the guy with the Swiss Accent says, with a little bit of care you can strip AWG 25 wire.

I know that Knippex is top of the range, but the €50 difference to the Jokari, is it worth it? I will pop the €50 in my piggy bank for the 3D printer instead!

For household wiring, I would still use my heavier duty wire stripper which has served me well even while doing wiring on my boat.

I tried a few strippers, until now, and I worked in a service where I had to strip wires. So I put some comments bellow:

This one don't let you a longer strip distance. And I find this a disadvantage as you can't easly solering wires together.

This is my favorite, which I plan to buy it next. It may help me at stripping cables without touching the wires inside, and then stripping the wires separetly. Also it is fast.

I bought one for the srvice, and it's better without it. The thick wires can't cut them, and the 2.5mm wire I used the most. After 1-2 months, after the surfaces get sticking it began cutting less.
Also you can not strip for example 1mm wire, and long distance of stripping at once. It works best on very short lengths. For 6mm of 2.5 diameter I had to stripping 3-4 times to keep the copper intact.

I tried one with a variabkle screw like this one, which is quite cheap. It didn't work on thick cables, and it was a pain to calibrate for thin wires like so 2.54mm.

I thought about this too for cables, but I don't think I have much force to pull the device manually. Also it may don't have the same diameter with I need.
