    As a rule, I have found insulation strippers pretty useless. I used to do a lot of soldering for a living many years ago and near enough every sleeve stripper that came my way was a waste of time. They either slip on the plastic/rubber or cut into the conductors as well as cutting the sleeve. By the time you've pissed about setting the cutting depth to a point where the cores won't get damaged, you might as have done the job by hand.

    The strippers linked to are very similar to ones I use for stripping wire-wrap wire. They're very good indeed, though pricey.
    At the other end of the price spectrum I have a pair of really cheap wire strippers which I bought from Maplin when I was a kid. Everyone laughs at them and says they look like rubbish but I find them very useful and still use them now. I can feel the insulation being cut and can usually judge how hard to squeeze to cut the insulation without damaging the conductors.

    The ones I linked to are superb and will last a lifetime. Mine are adjustable from 0.25mm to 0.8mm and will not nick the copper stands and give a super clean cut on the insulation. They have saved me so much time over the years.
