Award-winning tool now strips AWG 6-12 wire.
Design takes awards at NHS, Popular Mechanics and Handy.
The original award-winning Rapid Shark has stripping holes for AWG 10-18 wires. The new Big Bite is for larger AWG 6-12 wires. It’s got the same precision bite, just a bigger appetite. The Shark’s knife and wire stripper are cleverly combined in a rugged, ergonomic case about the size of a standard knife.
The pliers-like grip for the stripper locks securely into the body of the knife when not in use. It is spring loaded for easy opening and comfortable cutting, with five precision-ground stripping holes for easily removing insulation from wire.
Rapid Tools, inventor of the industry’s only serrated-edge utility blade, has been making a lot of news this year. At the National Hardware Show (NHS) in Las Vegas this summer, US buyers and media got their first look at the Rapid Shark, the first tool to combine a top-of-the-line utility knife with a professional-quality wire stripper, cutter and crimper.
