Can anyone recommend a good tool to strip the outer and inner cable for coax cables?

There is such a tool, but its not cheap, Stick with a pair of sharp side cutters

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

In the 40 years I've been stripping coaxial cable (professionally, as a communications engineer) I've never come across a tool that works better than a simple Stanley knife (blade) - with a little practise.....

It all depends on the connector/coax type, as above a Stanley blade and a decent pair of cutters has never failed me - coax like Westflex WF-103 is best cut by hand

With a blade and practice you have more control imho

Never really got on that well with wire strippers in general. Knife for me. Not a Stanley though, the blade's too short for me. An ordinary pocket knife, properly sharp.
