Much better for flat trowelling K as having more spring means you don't need to apply so much pressure. The patina is not a problem comes off first rub.

I have a carbon MT trowel for years , only used for trowelling skim . I haven't used oil in a long time , so long as you dry it well at the end of the day it won't rust . They get nice and sharp to easy trowelling but will get nicked very easy too

I just ordered a steel 13 by 5 MT but after reading this would anyone recommend carbon instead? Wanted a change from the permashpe and mine is turning into a banana as well but never had anything different any thoughts??

By old boss had a steel one and it was nice. Don't do much outside now. So probably have to break it in, the permashpes are no bother out the box and mine is nice now, but think it's just to bent

I have a MT 18 inch carbon, a great trowel. I have tried to upload the photo but it just says error occurede. I don't rate these fancy flexis and the likes. I just don't see the point myself but each to there own.

I wonder myself about these flexies , my old carbon trowel is pretty flexy at this stage . Ill report back after I try out a few
