There are several crescent wrenches available on the market. Some are adjustable, others can be used with one fastener size, and others are just plain fixed. Whatever type of crescent wrench you need, you can find it at your local home improvement store.
Bahco 12 in. Adjustable Wrench
Bahco’s 12″ adjustable wrench is just the thing to get your mitts around that ol’ barge. The best part is, it’s priced right and the quality is high. From the slick chrome finish to the smooth adjustable nut, this tool has all the bells and whistles, and is a joy to use. Not to mention, it’s been engineered to perform like a champ.
As far as we can tell, this wrench is a clone of the original, but with the added bonus of a few modern day tweaks. For instance, the aforementioned knurled nut makes for easy adjustment, and the slim and narrow head isn’t just for show, it’s for work. Also, this one is the real deal, and is made of high-performance alloy steel, which means it’s built to last.
Channellock 8WCB WideAzz 8-Inch Adjustable Wrench
When looking for an adjustable wrench, it’s best to consider the capacity of the jaws. A 12-inch wrench is ideal for larger nuts and bolts, but an 8-inch wrench will do the trick in smaller places. It also comes with a padded handle, making it comfortable to use.
If you’re in the market for a new adjustable wrench, you should know that there are plenty of options available. Some models come with a rubberized handle, which makes it easier to grip when wet. Others feature bare metal handles. These have the advantage of being harder to dig into flesh, but have other disadvantages.
Another type of wrench is a crescent wrench. The crescent is great for reaching into tight spaces. Its thin jaws help it to grasp small fasteners. However, the crescent’s jaws are shorter than those of a typical adjustable wrench. This may be problematic if you plan to use the wrench to tighten plumbing fittings.
Knipex 86 05 180 Pliers Wrench
The Knipex 86 05 180 Pliers Wrench is not just about holding or tightening your nut. It has an interesting design that allows for easy access to even the tiniest of places. For example, if you have to remove a lock nut from a wall, this plier will get you there in no time at all. And, if you need to tighten a hex nut, you can do so without leaving any fingerprints.
One of the best parts about the 86 05 180 Pliers Wrench (or the KNIPEX 88 05 180 in this case) is its patented and time saving button adjustment system. Unlike most pliers, this tool can be adjusted directly on the workpiece without having to take your hands off the job. This makes it a practical choice for any work space, whether it’s the garage, the basement or the office.
Jenny Shimizu’s bare-chested CK One ads
It’s been 30 years since the launch of Calvin Klein’s CK One fragrance. The fragrance had a ‘rave’ crowd, which symbolized defiant sexuality in the 1990s. Despite the gender-blending aesthetics, the campaign was marketed as a fragrance for everyone.
Among the ad campaigns were those shot by Mario Sorrenti, who also shot the ‘Samantha Urbani’ and ‘Taeyang’ ads. The 1995 Eternity ad, which was shot by Peter Lindbergh, was so seminal that it was later re-released. A couple of years later, Inez & Vinoodh recreated the ad with Christy Turlington.
Since then, CK One has gone through a number of offshoots, including ‘CK Be’, ‘CK One Electric’, ‘CK One Gold’, and ‘CK Scene’. Each one tries to emulate the original CK One. However, the brand has never stopped embracing different aesthetics for its fragrance. For instance, the recent ad features French musician Soko.
