The invention relates to a wire stripper having two pliers legs rotationally fixed in a joint, wherein the pliers legs each have a working region and a gripping region, wherein stripping blades extending so as to be directed transversely with respect to the pivoting plane of the pliers legs are formed at the free ends of the working regions and are configured so as to travel over each other, wherein an adjusting means, for example an adjusting screw, is also accommodated in one of the working regions in order to limit the overtravel of the stripping blades adjustably, and wherein, furthermore, a separating blade is provided on each working region, wherein the separating blade of one working region is designed to cooperate with the separating blade of the other working region. In order to further improve a wire stripper of the type under discussion in particular in terms of handling, according to the invention, the separating blades (24, 25) are formed as blades suitable to travel over each other in the manner of shears, of which the cutting edges (26, 27) each extend in the longitudinal direction of the working regions (7, 8), and the adjusting means (18) are arranged toward the free end of the working region (7, 8) in front in relation to the separating blades (24, 25), wherein, in a further possible configuration, in the closed state of the wire strippers the separating blades can be moved over each other to a maximum dimension (a) of up to 3, possibly up to 4 or 5 mm or more.
