Crescent Tools are 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.
With a history of over 100 years of performance, quality, and innovation, Crescent® is holding true to the fundamentals that have made it one of the most trusted names in hand tools and storage worldwide. Crescent is committed to consistently delivering products that exceed customer expectations for quality, durability, performance, and value.
