Utility/pocket/razor knife, then wire strippers (or just the
knife if you're a real macho man hardhead type <g>)
Hey, a few of us TRIED to tell you, the .59 Romex stripper isn't
made for this stuff. You need to slice the insulation in between
the conductors (about 6" worth) then totally strip the last 1/2"
or so out on the end. Good luck, keep some Band-Aids handy.

Exactly what do you mean by "exterior romex"?
The feeder cable that comes into your house is not ROMEX, it's regular
stranded (most likely aluminum) 3 conductor cable. Romex is solid
wire that some people use in their house because it's cheap.
We tried to warn you.
A utility knife works pretty good. Once you get the PVC cover whittled
down to the actual wire insulation, you can use a wire stripper so you
don't nick the copper.
(Been a few years since I've used the stuff) Try scoring straight down
the middle with a utility knife or box cutter, then grab the bare ground
wire with a pair of plairs and pulling it back to tear the cut you just
made. Might work; might not; I don't remember.
