Are you referring to a section out of the middle or the end?

I use a Flat Razor Blade.

Go around real easy so you don't cut the wire.

Do this around the length front and back.

Then cut a streight slit between the two and bend the wire so the edges pop up.

Then peal out the section you want to remove.

that last technique is great when all you have is x-acto. you don't cut to the wire, except for the cut along the length - it doesn't damage any of the strands to cut along them, only against them. then cause you have a cut around the wire, when you 'rip it off' it USUALLY rips around hte little guide you make
ONLY PROBLEM with stripping like this you can't get shrink tube over the joint, and i hate electrical tape more than those damn T-Taps. 3 years later - electrical tape is waorn away, shorts out and BAM! you have crap. lol. shrink tube is gods gift... right between pretty women and german engineering.

I bought this wire stripper at a hardware store, and honestly it is worth i'ts weight in pure gold. It makes any wiring job go by so much quicker.  best way to strip a wire without cutting - Page 2 -- posted image.
