Crescent Brand:
Makers of Quality Adjustable Wrenches, Pliers and Screwdrivers

Crescent, originally called the Crescent Tool Company, is a brand of hand tools. Founded in 1907, the Crescent brand has changed ownership multiple times. It is currently owned by Apex Tool Group, LLC as part of its Hand Tools division. It is best known for its style of adjustable wrench.

The Crescent Tool Company was founded in Jamestown, New York, by Karl Peterson and Edward J. Worcester in 1907. It is considered "one of the crown jewels of Jamestown's industry".[3] The company soon became known for its adjustable wrenches.

In 1927, Charles Lindberg, for tools brought only pliers and a Crescent brand wrench on his famous solo flight across the Atlantic.[4] In fact, Lindberg said that he brought only "gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water, and a Crescent wrench and pliers".[5] Also, there was a rumor that Richard Evelyn Byrd, on his initial journey to Alaska, had a Crescent wrench in his provisions.[3]

An 1857 patent by Edward J. Worcester is a progenitor of modern adjustable wrenches.[6] The Swedish company Bahco and inventor Johan Petter Johansson are also credited with the design of modern adjustable wrenches.

The Crescent Tool Company was acquired by a group of investors in 1960 after Marvin Peterson, Karl's son, sold it.[4] The company was renamed the Crescent Niagara Corporation. In 1968, Crescent Niagara was acquired by Cooper Industries. In 2010, the tool divisions of Cooper Industries and Danaher Corporation formed a joint venture, Apex Tool Group, LLC. The brand is currently owned by Apex Brands, Inc. the intellectual property entity of Apex Tool Group
