When will the Knipex NexStrip be available in the USA?
September 8, 2022: I spoke with Knipex USA, and they informed me that the Knipex NexStrip should be available in the USA by the end of 2022. They also went out of their way to mention that the NexStrip is for stripping single conductors and not for stripping THHN-type conductors.
