Bohning Fletch Stripper
I bought one to strip some fletches and it fell apart after 9 arrows.handle should be wood with a rivett to hold together

okay in a pinch for one or two uses
I have owned this stripper now for a few years and have not been happy from the get go with it. The first time or two doing 6 shafts each time it worked okay. After that the blade became so dull it was useless. I now file it down for a new edge. I have had to do this about every 12 or so shafts or sooner. Shortly there will be nothing left to work with. Really should have tossed it long ago but that’s not my way. I will replace it now with something better. The only use I see for it is to put it in a field box new. Now leave it there as a just in case to save a trip. For this use it would be okay but nothing more.

To be honest this product is a little cheap. I don't expect it to last very long. I stripped 10 arrows last night and it was starting to dull. If you scrap it fast it works well but after a few you will notice a difference. I can't say that I am displeased with it. It does work. There are better cutters out there but this one was the first and cheapest I saw. I'll use it until it messes up an arrow and then decide if it is worth buying again. If you need to get one for a quick couple of jobs this will work. But as I said it is not high quality, but what do you expect for 12 bucks.

Best stripper I've ever owed!
I tried the dull pocket knives for a long time. Finally broke down and bought this. Best $10 I've spent in fletching my own arrows yet! Made stripping fletchings and wraps a breeze. Worth every penny I tell ya! A great product at a great price.
