When ‘pyro’ is brought up, I immediately think of exothermic welds, often installed for subsurface grounding connections. They are always bare, so no stripper is used.

Understood that ‘pyro’ could have a different/regional meaning.

Bjarney,
Pyro is short for Pyrotenax,
it is a brand of Mineral-Insulated, Metal-Sheathed (MIMS) cable. [Linked Image]
Lyle,
Have you tried the site of Radio Spares Components? (RS Components) as they used to sell tools for Pyro work.

At http://www.radionics.ie there is a tool like this listed as Cat No. 369-264 and it has the Code ZSJ.
Hope that this is of some help to you!. [Linked Image]

Mike — That's a very interesting looking tool. Where does it vent the requisite smoke and flames? ;-) ;-) ;-)

Bjarney,
MIMS cable is invariably made from a Copper Sheath with a Chalk inner holding 2 or more wires in suspension.
The wires themselves, having a 200 degree C+ rating.
They are used in the Non-US Areas for providing circuits in Boiler-Rooms and other High Temperature areas.
Biggest thing that anyone that works with MIMS, will tell you, is moisture!.
Allow a wee bit of moisture into a MIMS cable and see the Insulation Resistance to drop like a stone!. [Linked Image]
