If you fully tin the braid, all you need to do is scribe it
with a carpet knife then bend it and it will cleanly crack
at the scribe mark.

First cut the entire end cable straight off the correct
length for the center. Then strip back only the jacket to
proper length. Then crack the braid to proper length. Then
do the center.

Tinned braid breaks easy.
