In 1886, a young blacksmith named George B. DeArment decided it was time to improve the farriers' tools. He spent the cold northwestern Pennsylvania winters hand-forging tools in a factory in Evansburg, PA. When warmer weather arrived in the spring, he would load his wagon with all the tools he had forged and travel from town to town, selling his wares until the wagon was empty. Then he would sell the horse and wagon and catch a train back to Evansburg to begin the process again. Thus began an American hand-tool legacy.

Dedication to Excellence

Channellock’s legacy of quality tools began in 1886 when blacksmith George B. DeArment worked on improving the tools farriers used on horse hooves. Years later, the line expanded to include hammers, and in 1933 the multi-position, tongue-and-groove, slip-joint style pliers called Channellock Champion were developed. Now, Channellock manufactures over 120 pliers and other hand tools. DeArment believed in four guiding principles the company still holds firm to today. Good management is never far from the factory floor; people are more important than machines; bigger doesn't always mean better, and dedication to excellence is the surest way to surmount adversity and prosper.

Built to Last

Channellock’s prime line of high-quality striking tools includes a full range of hammers, sledgehammers, mauls, axes, mattocks, picks, and more. The hardened and tempered heads are forged from heat-treated carbon steel. These strong, rust-resistant tools are up to any task and are built to last. Keep working longer with durable, dual-injected fiberglass handles; they’re more comfortable than wooden handles and provide better strength and grip.
