Carbon steel finishing trowel features a precision ground edge that is "broke-in" and ready for immediate use. Each trowel is made with state of the art machinery that grinds the blade to just the right dimension for that perfect feel. Greater flexibility and durability reduces fatigue when finishing plaster. A high-strength, lightweight aluminum mounting stands up to the rigors of plaster work. Compression fit stainless steel power pin rivets attach the mounting to the 10-1/2"x4-1/2" blade. An oversized toe rivet provides extra strength when applying pressure during finish work. Guaranteed No-Turn handle design locks the handle to mounting. Featuring the patented cork handle (U.S. Des. Patent #D853,821 S) with natural moisture repellent properties and an ergonomic, fatigue reducing design that provides for a secure grip. Proudly made in the USA.
