    No apology required, because as mentioned, this is a friendly community.

    Take your fancy stripper into the corner with you and you'll soon feel better :p
    I'm only jealous I've not got one after all.

    Ooh you can claim it on expenses then. Wire your house gas and electricity through there and you'll get that for free too.

    Winner.

    I had a wire stripper that looked like the Knipex, but turned 90 degrees from the handle, and worked in the same way. It was *brilliant*.

    ...I got it from a pound shop.

    Lost it years ago, so knife and teeth it is!

    It will definitely involve strippers


    On topic: do we think bootleg Knipex are a thing, because that £45 OBO eBay one is looking somewhat tempting, but also bookended by listings that are twice as much casting doubt.

    There's nothing about them to suggest they're not. They came in the right packaging below, there's no play in them at all, all the cast markings for measurements and the made in Germany bit are all really clean, really clear. If they're fake they're really really good fakes. :hehe:

    I just don't trust surprisingly cheap, especially on eBay.

    I used to work for a Chinese company in telecoms. They were so good at replication that even Siemens or Ericsson couldn't tell the difference. Especially because the Chinese copied everything, including the original company logo. And we're talking multiple tens of thousands in networking equipment here, not (cheap) tools.

    You know you're getting old when you get a thrill out of buying a kettle.

    I used PayPal and took screenshots of the page saying they were genuine so if it went tits up, because "if it's too good to be true".....
    I am somewhat guilty of buying way too much cheap chinesium that because guilt or bank balance demanded it. If I could find replicates of everything this good at the same price ratio and be fully jizzed up
