Fiber Stripping:

If the blades are dull, coating edge at the stripped boundary may be rough and jagged.  Such a rough coating edge can lead to lateral forces on the fiber when it is inserted into the ferrule holder / ferrule assembly (causing degraded product performance).  It is better that the stripped edge is cut cleaning and 90-degree angle to the fiber, so that the edge will butt evenly against the rear of the ferrule during potting.
