Got the trowel last Wednesday haven't used it that much. Picked it up today and noticed the blade peeling away from the handle underneath the black tape. Bent on the toe. Has anyone else had this problem?

Wouldn't say it's been dropped but like somethings been leant against it for a considerable time. Well and truly sprained!!

What ever was leaning on it to make it go like that turn the trowel over and rest it on the other side and hope it's bends back into shape.
If not then it would work well with........[emoji16][emoji16]

But they are not as flexible. It's a different trowel altogether. I've had no issues with my nela's, but they've been looked after.
The picture above isn't an 'issue'

Try bending it back, they sensitive little flowers, you have to look after them. If you can't bend it back order a new one simples

I would love to bate the Ballix out of thon one!!!! He's a first class nut job! Who in the name of good f**k gives a flying fcuk what kind of watch he has on site! I hope I come across him on site if I end up across the big pond this year. If I do, I'm going to turn him upside down and use him as a mixing stick!
