Schrade Cutlery Company to create a series of three different locking plier multitools. The 5WR and 6LC models were marketed under the Vise-Grip name, while the ST6 model was branded and sold by Schrade. All three were made simply by adding a new lower handle with blades onto an existing Vise-Grip plier model.
Production ceased in 2004 when Schrade closed it doors.
