    Always preferred the single bar ones, but was on the doubles theday, definitely impressed. Very tempted to get a set soon. Found them more comfortable for sure. Bit more awkward to get in and out of after being used the singles though

    Anyone got/used the bero expert trowels?

    Look similar to nela. Our local hardware store seems to stock up with it instead of nela, and think there supplier may have fell out with nela, which could be why.

    Chamfer feather edge

    Was just wondering does anyone make 6-8ft edges with a chamfer for cutting bases or v-ing out etc. I know ramboo tools do the double and single ones for cutting quoins, just haven't seen any longer ones say for a stretch of projective base. Think the ramboo ones are only 2ft.
