Wire cutter reccomendation

Hi,
Can someone recommend a good pair of wire cutters to purchase please? I am looking for something that I will use mainly for electrical wiring around the home and would like it to have a component that strips the protective sheath also.
I bought one from B&Q, their own brand I think, a few years back that looks a bit like a barreless gun that you squeeze the handle to tear off the protective sheath on wiring but it didn't seem to work that well.
Any recommendations welcome,
John.

One job at a time - get a seperate pair of sidecutters and strippers. Not much to choose with cutters. The best strippers I've found are the cheapo far-east ones you get at cheap tool stalls at markets etc - red metal body with black plastic lever and jaws - there are 2 types, one has an adjustment thumbwheel screw on the back - this is the type you want - the non-adjustable ones are no good.
CPC do them - stock code TL0448022 (www.cpc.co.uk). Picture :

They're cheap so buy two as they will break eventually, but before that they work great after you've adjusted them.

Wow. I love Vehicle Wiring Products to bits for stocking all those things you can never get, but I'd never call them cheap.
