I got two of these. One that goes to 30AWG and one for larger wires.

I've been using something similar for years. Can get them for $10-15

Looks like Paracord to me.  Well, Paracord above the Y-split.  Doesn't look like it's sleeved below the split.

Yes I meant above the split... thanks :D.

I use this Nitronic ministrip at home, in my IMHO the best hand held stripper available. 

 

I use a desktop electric one in the workshop and for more complex wires.

You get what you pay for :) For wires with fine strands, the cheaper ones will always rip/cut off a strand or two and with a precision stripper like this, i don't have to worry about that. Gives me piece of mind, especially with litz wires.

Back in the old days we used the soldering iron to strip most small gauge wire cleanly as well, such as wire wrap wire. Just heat against an edge an pull... A little tip cleanup on the brass mesh is no big deal. Or learn to strip with a knife like we all did... biggrin.gif

Oh and did I mention Teeth... eek.giftongue.gif

And then you'll need a solder pot to tin and get all the enamel cleanly off the litz wire.

Steve recommends using a knife, I was looking for a cleaner way to do it though.
