This is a method of stripping wire that one of my friends showed me. I noticed that I use wire for a lot of projects and don't have a wire stripper. This way is useful if you don't have a wire stripper and you're either broke or too lazy to get one. It may seem like it takes a while to do, but once you get used to it it barely takes any time at all. This method is similar to the one by Weissensteinburg , but my friend said that this way may be better for the wire less likely to damage it but I'm not sure. Feedback is always appreciated!

How to Use Wire Strippers
A wire stripper is a small, hand-held device used to strip the electrical insulation from electric wires. A US-style simple manual wire stripper is a pair of opposing blades much like scissors or wire cutters. The addition of a center notch makes it easier to cut the insulation without cutting the wire. This type of wire stripper is used by rotating it around the insulation while applying pressure in order to make a cut around the insulation. This type of wire stripper can be used on wires of any size.
One of the most underrated tools that all home hobbyists need is a good pair of wire strippers. If you need to just cut wires, there are tools for that but you can get by with just a sharp pocket knife. Wire strippers, however, are designed to remove the insulating sheath from around a wire, which means you need to cut the sheath while leaving the wire itself intact.
