The 5WR model (5-inch Curved Jaw Locking Pliers with Wire Cutter) had been in the Vise-Grip line for years prior to 2001. In that year, Vise-Grip joined forces with Schrade to develop the 5WR Toolbox, a locking plier multitool. Production ceased a few years later when Schrade closed its doors. Meanwhile the standard non-multitool 5WR is still in production at Irwin Vise-Grip.
There is a serrated gripping area and an anvil type wire cutter.
Finish is chrome plated steel.
5WR is cast into the plier jaw. VISE GRIP is stamped into one handle, the TOOLBOX logo into the other.
