Sorry got same item under Dekton brand for £6.11 from ebay in December so …Sorry got same item under Dekton brand for £6.11 from ebay in December so cold from me.


There are plenty of different brands out there, some much cheaper than these. The Dekton brand youve mentioned has a plastic coated body and some of the other parts are plastic. These C.K ones are all metal body, thus I think there is a price difference.
It's all dependent on how much you will be using them, if you're a diy / hobiest, then the ones you've mentioned will be great.

But thank you for voting either way.
Grabbed the last one from my local. It really came down to the wire
Much better than me trying 5 times with a Stanley blade haha

Same price on Amazon
Great tool. What a time saver.

I've bought a cheaper brand before and it stopped working the first time I dropped it!

How well does the dekton one perform? Worse thing on these are the tolerances going so they misstrip or rip insulation.

I've only used their hole cutters, they're 'cheap', not sharp but 'useable' on soft wood.

A few years ago I bought a similar/same pair from a car boot sale for £7.50 which I thought was expensive at the time because I'm used to my Poundland stuff but it has outlasted a few others I have bought since from aforementioned Poundland.
I always like to have a spare but at this moment in time the original car boot sale purchase is still the one that's fully working in my tool bag.
Moral of the story

I used to use this style when I did some panel wiring amazon.co.uk/Rol…-23 (not this brand but they where very neat and precise).
These are essential. Stops you nicking the outer insulation, or the wire. I bought the cheap version off eBay, and I'm certain its the same as the more expensive brands. Had it 5 yers now with no problems.
Have to admit, bout a Chinese imitation set at first to see if these were a gimmick. Worked ok but started not cutting the insulation but liked the concept. So bought some C.k ones
Have a similar pair (Am-Tech), for a tool that serves a specific purpose, these are invaluable and save a great amount of time. Highly recommended if you're doing any form of wiring.
Same price on toolstation ebay with free delivery.
Worth checking your local Aldi - they had a set in last week for £5.99 and I'm made up with mine
I've got a pair of these (or similar). Great at stripping insulation from the inner wires of three core cable, but can you also use them to strip the outer cover? Haven't quite sussed out how to do that.
And these ones seem cheaper, but with more functionality?

Experts out there, which is best and why please ?!! Not my specialist subject, and I have too many bad memories with a stanley knife ...
Bought the Laser variant from Halfords not so long ago and they are fantastic, even managed to strip some Co-ax aerial cable I needed to wire up.
This review doesn't cover CK but gives you an idea of the types of differences between cheep ones and branded ones.

Or just don’t drop it and it may still works...
This is a great tool. I don't have a C.K pair but I do have one from Aldi which was £5.99 and has good build quality and is made in Austria. You might still find these instore possibly.

They might be the same and come out the same factory (I don't know if CK make their own product or get another tool company to make them) - but there are hundreds of copies of this style of wire stripper, some appear identical to one another and some are slightly different. Hard to know if those on Amazon are the same or a very close copy of the design.
Grabbed the last one from my local. It really came down to the wire

Helpful. Thanks for that
Exactly the same at homebase for £5 2 years ago during the sale. Part of the Bunning CraftRight range, great tool
Edited by: "bobo53" 26th Jan
I bought one of these few years ago only really used it to strip back twin and earth sheeving. After about 6-months the spring mechanism in their snapped, I know CK is a good make but honestly the build quality of this is not great at all.
There are ok but far from the best and not worth double figures . They do strip multiple wires but single wires after that the tend to miss . Better off buying cheap eBay £5 efforts as they are just as good .
Thanks. Ordered. Didn't know about this type. Needed some and other stuff from toolstation.

Priced up same items from Amazon and we're £1.50 cheaper. But done now.

Used the CK variety & never had an issue.Seen the imitations but rather use a quality brand.
Look after them & you'll not have an issue.
You can get these for 4 squids on aliexpress

Are you sure you've adjusted them correctly using the brass turnscrew??
I've literally stripped endless single core copper cabling & never had an issue after setting them correctly.
kilrah26/01/2020 16:13

Similar or even the same but cheaper



Theres lots of imitations which are cheaper.
The post is CK branded which carrys a guarantee.
Wow what a rip off. I bought one of these for like £4 on ebay

Maybe I'm an old fashioned person but the CK brand name doesn't tell me anything. The savings on £pounds£ tell me a lot especially if the items look the same.
Calvin Klein even doing wire strippers now.
Have few different types but still use a simple flat metal type about 3 inches long, had it for decades. The type here is invaluable for opening up cable along its length as in connecting earth cable to multiple earthing clips.39768837-ioMVX.jpg

Maybe give it ago but doubt it .need to resort to bacho manual ones or snap on . I hate giving snap on the money tbh always look for alternatives
I’m an electrician and have used these albeit under the older brand name, a few times a week since I was an apprentice 15 years ago and they still operate as well as they did when new. They are made of very robust plastic but have metal internals and have lived in the bottom of my toolbox without being damaged for their life. The CK ones are a good price but the set linked that I’ve got have outlived colleagues’ multiple times.

Can you please tell how these are called, for googling purposes, I need to learn how to use them (and purchase later on, so any recommendations on the particular model/make are welcomed)?
