Most people use chain tools for bike chains, see Park Tools.

Don't. I've owned them. They are mostly useless. They'd be completely useless if they couldn't be used to hold down paper

All kidding aside, they don't develop the leverage you need to push the pin out. A screw type chain tool is better than those. Heck the Cyclo Rivoli chain tool works better than those and it's not a 'good' chain tool. If you want a good chain plier, get a Park CT-2 which actually works on chains.

If you insist on the Hozan, here's a listing on Fleabay. It's certainly not worth the $90 listed price. The Park tool is around $70 and a far better tool.

Back in the 80's I owned and used an identical Hozan with ease; but, I knew that there was a "pliers" alternative at the time and it was/is, indeed, the one made by Park.

Not Hozan, but you can get the essentially the same tool from VAR or Park:

I have the VAR plier. It works ok but I can't say it works better than a press type.

+1 on the recommendation for the CT-2. I've had mine for many years and am very happy with it.
