Default RJ45 Crimpers

A while back I had an RJ45 crimper that had a blade on it. I am trying to find out if anyone has ever seen it before as I have lost it. The reason for the blade is pretty cool. The ends that you use on the tool have an open end where you put the conductors through the end. Instead of cutting the conductors to length and putting them in to the cable end, you simply let them stay long and they run right out the other side. When you crimp down, the blade cuts off the extra length of the conductors to make sure they are always just the right length.

It is hard to explain.

Has anyone seen this tool? If so, do you remember the maker of it? I remember they have blue handles. If my post makes no sense at all, let me know so I can try to explain better.

Regards,
Keith
