Dolphin swage tools are a heavy duty full bite tool that will crimp a swage in 2 – 3 bites of the tool depending on swage size compared with 5 -6 bites of other swage tools, not to mention the time saving for professionals doing many swages in a day. The advantage of fewer bites is a much smoother & neater finish with less ridges or burrs to catch on clothing, sails etc or cuts & scratches to personnel.
