Collection: Crescent

Crescent® is a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. It introduced the original adjustable wrench in the early 1900s in the USA, 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.

Crescent® tools are made from chrome vanadium steel alloy, specially formulated and heat-treated for high strength and superior resistance to abrasion and corrosion. Every part of every tool is designed for an extremely long life.

A full line of quality hand tools from the brand trusted for over 100 years.

Year after year, the Crescent® highly-respected brand remains true to its heritage of offering quality tools that solve real problems and continues to introduce new innovations across various professional and DIY product categories. Whether tearing down a wall or building a piece of flat-pack furniture, Crescent® is the hand tool brand you can trust to get the job done faster.


Crescent Wiss® is a premier scissors, snips and specialty trade tools brand from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world.

Crescent Wiss® has been the leading brand in aviation snips for over 50 years, driven by TWO principles: performance and durability. 

Wiss® puts those same qualities into every product in its line.

So no matter what Wiss® tool you use, you can count on getting exceptional performance and long life.

 

In the early 1800s, and for centuries prior, the file was an essential sharpening tool in every shop, farm and household. But this seemingly simple tool was deceptively difficult to make. Special steel with specific carbon content had to be precisely shaped, annealed ground, chiselled and hardened to achieve acceptable sharpness and durability. The only way to accomplish this was to produce files by hand, with master craftsmen closely guarding their secret techniques.

But in 1864, William T. Nicholson changed history: He designed and patented the equipment to successfully manufacture machine-made files.

Crescent Nicholson® became the first successful manufacturer of machine-made files. Today, they are the most recognised brand of file in the world. Over the years, the Nicholson product line has increased in scope and size, and now includes files, rasps and handsaws, all manufactured to uncompromising standards of quality.

 

Ever since the first Lufkin® wooden rule was produced in 1869, the Crescent Lufkin® brand has been synonymous with high-quality and unmatched accuracy.

And today, the Crescent Lufkin® brand remains a market leader for measuring products from Apex Tool Group.

Crescent Lufkin® pocket tapes, long tapes and measuring wheels provide precise measurements for professionals and DIYers alike.
