It's a whole new ball game with hi-speed RG6 connectors. They need a new
compression tool which provides a 360-degree swedge compression.

Open the razor knife and place the edge of the blade, not the tip,
about an inch from the cut end. Hold the blade perpendicular to the
cable and not along it. Press the blade into the cable and begin
rotating it around the cable. The key here is to cut through the outer
sheath, the wire mesh and the dielectric insulator while avoiding
coming in contact with the copper core. This is tough to do and may
take a few tries, but the best practice is to cut near to the center
without going too far and then twisting the cut portion off. Inspect
the copper core for any nicks. Remember--nicks in the copper core will
decrease picture quality, so be careful.

If any dielectric insulation or wire mesh is sticking out from the cut
area, use the knife to remove it and smooth the cut. Now it is time to
cut the outer sheath back a little farther. Most "F" connectors
require about a 5/16 inch of sheath to be removed for a proper
installation. Hold the knife edge against the cable as you did earler
and lightly cut around the cable so that the outer sheath can be
removed, keeping the mesh, insulation and core intact.
