Carbon will wear in faster , how ever if you do a lot s&c work there is not much in it between the two , same as the sharpness imo .

I’ve got a carbon steel axe and nothing sharpens like it. Convinced I could shave with it. Stainless just isn’t the same for knives and axes. Carbon steel rocks.

Yes mate!! You trowel freak, lol if it’s any good I might have to get one aswell. What are your first thoughts? I want one badly now.
It’s not mine really lol

If you on net and want gold flex mate , my mate just got one of these I haven’t used it but man it felt lovely to hold , I posted a thread few weeks ago about it but everyone slagged it but my mate said it’s best he’s had £80 ish

I got that email today..... a new s*p*r*lex which is stiffer than their original version, and a new gold stainless trowel. Refina is quality kit, a bit pricey sometimes and if you buy direct from Refina the postage puts me off but still great tools.
I like Refina stuff quality thro out the range no question
