Crescent H.K. Porter is a leading brand of industrial cutting products from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. In 1880, Henry K. Porter patented an adjustable “bolt cutter.” His original concept has since been improved upon and adapted to many new applications, such as hydraulic wire rope cutters for bridge construction and ratcheting shear cutters for utilities. Today, the extensive Crescent H.K. Porter product line includes manual cutters, hydraulic cutters, pneumatic cutters, and accessories. All are among the thousands of quality hand tool products offered under the Crescent name – products professional tradespeople know they can count on to get the job done right.
