Southwire is expanding its hand tool lineup with a more robust line of strippers and cutters. Up first on our plate is the Southwire Forged Romex Stripper.

We put Southwire’s new Forged Romex Stripper to work in our shop. So far, we really like what we see. The new forged Romex stripper is made from heavy-duty…you guessed it…forged steel.

But it’s not just a Romex Stripper. Once you pull off the outer jacket, you can prep the wires inside with the included single 14 and 12-gauge strippers. You’ll also find a wire loop on one jaw and 6-32/8-32 screw shears.

As you make your way up to the jaw tips, it’s obvious these are far from your cheap stamped steel wire strippers. Wide jaws with solid knurling can accommodate Romex and help you grab, pull, and twist wire (including Romex) to your heart’s content.

The ergonomically-shaped handles feature an upward curve that contours well into your hand. Our Pros feet the grips are comfortable and each has a tether hole at the end.

These strippers are spring loaded and there’s a lock to keep them closed. Our electricians are split over spring versus no spring handles, so that’s a call to make for yourself.

Look for Southwire’s Forged Romex Strippers under model SNM1214HD and expect to pay around $30. Southwire backs these with a lifetime guarantee.
