Crescent Hand Tools

28 March 2022

Crescent tools are some of the most famous hand tool products bought and sold around the world. Founded in 1907, Crescent has had more than a century of experience in creating high quality, innovative goods for tradies. Their selection is vast, but it is all made with the same level of quality and smart design. Some of the major reasons Crescent hand tools should be in every tradie’s toolbox include: 

A long history of quality design

Crescent started its career in 1907, when its founder Karl Peterson introduced the Crescent adjustable wrench to America. Its success meant that not only did the brand become one of the most popular hand tool manufacturers in the world but adjustable wrenches actually came to be called crescent wrenches in America, a name that persists to this day. There is so much competition in the tool industry today between quality brands, affordable tools and low quality toolbox-fillers, that it is often hard to know what is the right product to buy. Coming out as one of the world’s most popular tool brands after more than a hundred years of competition means that Crescent tools should certainly be one of the most trusted options available on the market today. 

A focus on quality and durability

Many people have had many things to say about Crescent. Charles Lindbergh, the person who made history by flying solo across the Atlantic in 1927 was quoted as saying “gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water and a Crescent wrench and pliers”. From the very beginning Crescent has made it their mission to produce high quality products that last years of hard use. This means that they are very often not the lowest in price, but their level of quality makes every penny worth it. 

Excellent portfolio of tools

Over the years Crescent has moved beyond just adjustable wrenches and created a portfolio of more than 2,600 tools, each one made with the Crescent guarantee for quality. Crescent has absorbed many famous brands over the years including Lufkin, Wiss, Nicholson and H.K. Porter. These brands were each selected for their significant contributions to the field including:

  • Crescent Lufkin measuring tools
  • Crescent Wiss scissors and snips
  • Crescent Nicholson files and saw
  • Crescent H.K. Porter cutting tools 

This means that whether you are looking for a quality handsaw or a durable spanner, Crescent tools has invested a lot of time and money in ensuring that they can provide you with the very best. 

Made for serious professionals

Some brands focus on affordability, marketing towards newcomers or just getting the best price they can for their tools. Crescent tools were made to assist serious professionals with getting their job done right. This means that these tools aren’t as affordable as some brands that focus more on price than quality. However, everything from the expert design to the manufacturing process and the materials used have been specifically chosen to create a tool that will withstand hard use and make a big difference to the work that professionals are able to do. If you want something that will last a lifetime, then Crescent is going to be one of your best bets.
