Made for U.S. Military communications personnel and telecom professionals out in the field, the Cable Dawg is a specialized, industrial grade multitool for work on fiber optic, IT, and satellite cable systems. Every single tool a communications specialist needs is combined into one - spring-loaded wire and cable cutters, CAT5 jacket cutter, RJ45 crimper, wire strippers, combo-edge knife and multiple drivers. The Cable Dawg attacks the job efficiently, safely and quickly, cutting out multiple trips to the toolbox, base camp or work truck.

*In 2012 the Cable Dawg received an update to the RJ45 crimper that more confidently connects commercially available plugs.

Great tool but with the lack of a plier end its makes it hard to want to buy my own. But it is better to have this then some cheap crimpers that cant do the job.

Same as the rest... it needs pliers. But everything else is exactly what I need every single day!

Love the tool, wish you made one that matched Naval working uniforms though. and as the previous comment suggest, a plier tool would be ideal.

It'd be nice if you could change out jaws for other purposes. I rarely work on infrastructure stuff so this isn't something I'm going to rush out and buy for myself right now. Now if I could put some hex crimper jaws on there it would be a different story. Being able to crimp on grounding lugs would also be a nice addition.

I concur. Nice setup.
Used it several times.
Hard to open, and harder to close, on the knife.
Still need a multi-tool/pliers though.

If it had a plier end, with crimpers and tool tips, it would be perfect.

This would be great if it had pliers. I thought this would be the one tool to carry, but without pliers, you still need two.
