    PUTZ Valles Plastic Finishing Trowel

    Yeah, imagine a nick in the edge would be the end of it and a replacement blade needed. I'm waiting for Rossi to win the 2016 championship VR46:numberone:

    PUTZ Valles Plastic Finishing Trowel

    I got a chance to use one of these this week: Just used it for final trowel-up/polish after everything was flattened. IMHO it is the muts-nuts!!! Effortlessly leaves a silky glass like finish to the plaster - bootifull. Felt compelled to give it an endorsement (not the nasty kind you get...

    who makes the best trowel/s these days

    There are people out there that do/are, isn't that why Speedskim brought out their pink range of stainless steel bladed range? I can image that they'd be okay on something like Thistle Mag as this isn't troweled up to a polished finish...

    I have to say, this is the way I remember it too, but, that said I'm all for giving the speedskim a try, if it make the job quicker/easier in some way then it has to be a good thing right?! There are a lot of spreads out there who suffer from RSI
