Aug. 1, 2019
The new heavy-duty stripper from Klein Tools is designed to cut copper wire and larger cable.

Klein Tools introduces the Klein-Kurve Shear-Cut, Heavy-Duty Wire Stripper (Cat. No. K12035), which features shear-cutting knives for a lower force to cut copper wire and larger cables. This updated model integrates Klein’s quadruple-strength design and six stripping holes for use on 8-20 AWG wire. 

  • Forged from Klein’s U.S.-made, proprietary steel blend, providing four times the strength of traditional Klein wire strippers 
  • Strips 8 to18 AWG solid and 10 to 20 AWG stranded wire 
  • Large knurled plier head pulls and twists wire 
  • Shear cutting knives provide easier cutting of copper wire and larger material such as Romex® cable (all sizes) and other nonmetallic (type NM) sheathed cable 
  • 6-32 and 8-32 screw shearing for added convenience 
  • Wire looping hole 
  • Hot riveted joint prevents handle wobble and separation of the blades over time 
  • Klein-Kurve® comfort grip handles with textured grips for reduced hand fatigue and enhanced dexterity 
  • Integrated hang holes for easy all-day carrying 

Romex is a registered trademark of Southwire Company. Existing Klein-Kurve Heavy-Duty Wire Stripper models include the 8 to 18 AWG (Cat. No. K12054) and 10 to 20 AWG (Cat. No. K12055).

“The Klein-Kurve Heavy-Duty Wire Strippers feature a breakthrough wire stripper design forged from our U.S.- made proprietary steel blend and are manufactured to be four times stronger than traditional Klein wire strippers,” says Tyler Winthers, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “Klein’s newest innovation, the K12035, not only provides professionals with an expanded wire stripping range but also shear-cutting knives for easier cutting. These forged, heavy-duty wire strippers offer a durability built to withstand harsh job-site conditions day-in and day-out.”
