JINKAI Tools are among the finest of their kind to be found anywhere in the world. Each of them is a durable, well-designed, precision tool that gets the job done right. A quality tool is a pleasure to use every time.
JINKAI Crimping Tools

SC-3C  This is JINKAI's most deluxe handheld crimper, the original fine tool other companies have tried unsuccessfully to copy. Other tools may look the same but never match the smooth, precise operation of this JINKAI tool. Includes convenient side cutters, safety lock, and three crimping positions for use with JINKAI line 500lb. test and smaller.

SC-3  This beautifully designed tool includes a safety lock and handles contoured to fit comfortably in hand. Three crimping positions coordinate for use with JINKAI line 300 lb. test and smaller.

SC-2C  This tool is a good alternative for fishermen who use only the smaller sleeves, sizes H-K. Includes a tip cutter, textured grips, a safety clasp, and two crimping positions for use with JINKAI line 250 lb. test and smaller.

Quality tool
These are perfect for the shorter Jinkai crimps (H, I, J, K).
ProsPre-drilled hole on plate in handle for use of a set screw Reasonable price
ConsPre drilled hole not threaded. Tool is riveted together so taking it apart to tap the hole is impossible.

Tight crimps
I was looking for the best when shopping around, and was not disappointed. Ran a couple crimps to test and line broke before crimp let go which is what you want.

Well Made Tool!
Tool is well made. Haven't had a chance to try on real fish yet. Looking to test out Jinkai Sleeves in the next offshore trip.

Solid crimper
Great crimper. The heads align when closed. There was no gap either. They feel solid when applying pressure. Can’t go wrong with these.

Works as described
I have used other crimping tools about the same size but this tool is far superior. Very smooth operation when closing down on the crimp. You get what you pay for and I am glad I spent the money for this excellent tool.
ProsSmooth compression when crimping.
ConsNone observed thus far

Size up a step
nice consistent crimps but you're better off stepping up to the SC-3 crimper (which also has the capability to crimp size F and G sleeves as well as the size H-K of the SC-2C) for the same cost. Good tool though for the job.

Must have big game tool !!!!!!
Need these if your going after the big boys. Always carry a pair with me when I'm sharking now, and they are fantastic. You always need a good swage sleeve crimper with you if you plan on repairs out on the water.
Prosok price. very useful to repair or make rigs when on the water.

A Five Star Crimper
I started crimping heavy mono leaders for Alaska bottom fishing a few years ago. I have several crimpers and this one is the best for consistent results. I also use it with small sleeves for salmon leaders. Great product.

I am going to start making some new rigs where I will use smaller crimping sleeves than I have used in the past. I will be using American fishing wire sleeves single barrel in size #2 and AFW double barrel in size 4F8. What would be the best crimping tool to use? Thank you, Rick Nichols
