“First, Do No Harm”:   I want to emphasize the importance of not damaging inner materials when stripping any layer of the cable. This is most important when removing the Buffer materials directly protecting the optical fiber.   If the blade of the strip tool contacts the bare fiber, it is very easy to create a damaging “nick” or scratch in the fiber OD, which significantly reduces product reliability—–a fiber which has been scratched on the outer diameter may indeed function perfectly well for some time.
