Crescent® is a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. The Crescent Tool Company introduced the original adjustable wrench in the early 1900s, which in effect replaced an entire set of dedicated- size wrenches. It quickly became and continues to be one of the most essential tools in the toolbox. In fact, Charles Lindbergh was quoted saying he carried only “gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water and a Crescent® wrench and pliers” on his famous 1927 solo transatlantic flight. Today, the Crescent® line has expanded beyond adjustable wrenches to include a wide selection of pliers, ratcheting wrenches, screwdrivers and tool sets.
Designed for powerful, heavy cutting and tip cutting, these pliers feature electronically induction-hardened and hand-honed cutting edges, polished head and full-fashioned handles for maximum leverage. Made of forged alloy tool steel and individually tested for strength and cutting ability.
Renowned for providing years of work and performance, these pliers feature an extended and hardened cutting jaw for use with flat multi-core cabling, insulated grips, precise jaw gap for wire work, cross-hatch jaws for positive grip, a serrated pipe grip and a built-in crimper for use on 1.5mm2 to 6mm2 solder-less connectors.
