I have two like that, both from Hansen Hobbies. I first bought their cheaper red-handled one and had trouble keeping the contact in the jaws long enough to insert the wire. The more expensive blue-handled locking one is much nicer.

That said, they're really only good on servo connectors. I tried using them on some other, smaller connectors and the results weren't pretty. Since then, I found one I imagine is like Chris's. It will handle contacts down to 1mm wide and you have to do each of the two crimps separately. It works great on Spektrum satellite connectors. I still use the blue one on servo connectors because it does save time.

I don't remember - probably Hansen Hobbies.

I can post some photos - we lost our internet connection last week and I'm not caught up yet.
