“With electricians using their own pocket knives for cable skinning, many experience damaged blades and need to spend a great deal of time sharpening,” says Laura Ranieri, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “We know how important time is to electricians on the job so we developed a convenient utility knife that can keep up with the rigorous demand of cable skinning and requires no blade sharpening. With a captive screw, the Klein Tools’ Cable Skinning Utility Knife offers replacement blades that are as solid as a fixed-blade knife so that electricians can get back to work.”
