New Cable/Lineman's Skinning Knife With Serrated Blade Available From Klein Tools



CHICAGO, IL - November 2003 - Klein Tools has introduced a new cable/lineman's skinning knife (Cat. No. 1560-3) with a serrated blade for saw-action cutting and wire stripping.

Designed for professionals for removing cable jackets/shielding in preparation for cable splicing or termination, the new cable/lineman's skinning knife has a heavy-duty 3" serrated blade made of hardened steel that provides maximum sharpness and durability. The blade withstands frequent cable scoring of thick-sized, multi-sheathed cables. A scraping notch on the top of the blade removes wire insulation and contaminants such as cable-pulling compounds and dirt.

The knife has a comfortable, textured black handle with finger grooves and a guard, that helps to provide a firm, positive grip, and keeps fingers safely away from the hook point blade. A stainless steel, corrosion-resistant hang ring is securely molded into the handle; there is no metal-to-metal contact between the blade and the ring.

The knife also features an exclusive, rectangular shaped handle design that can be attached to some utility hot-stick equipment.

The latest addition in Klein Tools line of cable preparation tools, the new cable/lineman's skinning knife joins two other skinning knives, a leather lineman's knife holder, a cable splicer's knife and a cable splicer's kit.
