Nearly all of the dual shield (foil plus braid) have the foil *bonded*
to the dielectric.
I just trim the end so none sticks over the dielectric. I don't see any
reason for removing the foil other than at the very tip and I run a KW
through CNT-240 on 40 meters.
If you really have to remove the foil about the only way is to scrape it
off with a razor blade or box cutter. Then you have to be very careful
about little metal whiskers.
