Crimpers for spearfishing sold elsewhere that contain Stainless Steel in the description are never completely made of stainless steel. Normally only the handles are stainless steel, this is most evident with crimpers that have a black color tool head. But even crimpers that have a steel colored tool head are commonly not stainless steel. The Speardiver crimping tool is all stainless steel, perfect for a professional crimping job at home or on the boat. If you've kept hand tools on a boat used in saltwater, you know that despite the best maintenance efforts corrosion/rust is inevitable. To test this crimper we left it in the boat bilge for months and found no corrosion.
- Single handed operation, squeeze handles and point up to unlock tool head, squeeze and point down to lock handles with tool head in closed position.

- 4 crimp sizes: 0.1-0.5mm, 0.5-1.0mm, 1.0-2.0mm, 2.2mm
- Line/wire cutter on each side.
For best holding strength and durability crimp in two spots slightly back from each end of the crimp, so that the crimp edge doesn't dig into the mono and cut into it. Leave the middle un-crimped. When possible lightly melt the end of the mono with a lighter to form a glob, before pulling it to the crimp. This will lessen the possibility of the mono slipping through the crimp.
