When pulling the cables in my home, I use whatever is handy - often a lineman's pliers or diagonal cutter. I always cut the cable to the right length later, and as Colm said, adding the connector fixes the 'problem'. Pulling and trimming are often done on different days, for me.
If you're a pro, use expensive tools, and cut it to the right length once. Saves time and cable.
I use an EZRJ45 compression tool for category cable connectors which sacrifices about 2" of the cable end, eliminating the issue for cat cables. And yes, I'm aware it may introduce other issues, with the outside conductors.
