Crescent® is a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. The brand is often associated with its most famous product, the Crescent® brand adjustable wrench.
In 1907, a Swedish immigrant and inventor Karl Peterson founded the Crescent® Tool Company. Soon after that, he introduced America's first open-end adjustable wrench, a revolutionary concept that replaced an entire set of dedicated- size wrenches. The Crescent® adjustable wrench was extremely successful. It was widely imitated but never duplicated.
Today, professional tradespeople can select from Crescent® wrenches, pliers, screwdrivers, mechanics hand tools and toolsets.
