Has anyone brought some braided cable and struggled to cut the cable without the braid fraying?

We have a nice little trick that we use.

We use a small amount of sellotape wrap it around cable and cut with any type of cable cutters.
If you are careful with putting sellotape on you can get away with leaving the excess tape on cable without it being seen.

Do you have any tricks for removing a large amount of braid from the cable without unlocking it all

Is the cable already installed? i think we found a nice little tool that you can run around the braid to cut it, ill have to ask and find out were we got it from.
