Old and no longer needed except by ME !
I cut off the ends and cut the rubber a little with my quick unpick. Then I held the wire with one hand and the cut rubber with the other and pulled slowly. The wire cut through the rubber when I pulled revealing the very useful wire inside
This is a very old pair of pinking shears I now only use for paper. I cut a few cardboard shapes with the pinking shears to wrap my wire
Recycled wire now wrapped and ready to use for my wire projects
