I've been using Ideal Stripmasters since the wire shop at my last Navy command introduced me to them. They are a bit pricey but an individual hobbyist user should get a couple of lifetimes of use out of them. Random ebay auction to illustrate the type:

The T-7 type tool will work I guess, but it is not very precise... although I suppose someone could be making one with tight tolerances...

The other one, the "Stripmaster" is made by a great many manufacturers over the years and even today, the better ones are very very good and precise. Worth having if you want a quality tool and intend to strip a fair amount of wire.

You can use a sharp razor blade and gently roll the wire or the blade over the wire, not nicking the copper and strip thin wire that way... a little practice scoring the insulation and you can do it very quickly and well.

The best stripper I own is an unknown mfr, but a hand held gun thing with rotary blades. Wish I could buy a few more of them... it is perfect every time and works on teflon wire, which most other strippers have a hard time with... never seen another one like it!

When I get home I will show you the one I settled on after owning many. Not cheap but...
