"Really good tool, especially for the price. You get two different types of blades with it (Grit-Edged & Saw), so you have to unscrew them first before using it. I found putting the screws back a bit fiddly as the holes don't match up 100%, only slightly off, but requires a bit of patience. For this reason and the price, I bought two. Now I have two spare blades and don't have to spend time fiddling about each time I need to switch.
The tool is solid with a good handle, so you can put a bit of weight behind it if you have to."
"I bought this product with some scepticism. Needn't have worried it tackled the job with such ease. I would recommend this product for cleaning up or removing grout. Just be careful it doesn't slip out of the groove as it will scratch the tiles."
"This rake is the perfect tool for scraping dried grout from the joints between tiles, whether you're re-grouting or just need a tool to clean up the joints prior to grouting this tool is perfect for the job."
"I was also apprehensive about this product, i thought it would fall apart in half an hour. So i wasn't surprised when the comb shaped rake didn't last long, although it worked very well while it lasted (you could re-cut/sharpen the teeth if you had a thin grinding wheel and a vice though). Luckily, there was no need as the grit coated blade was much better. I did my kitchen floor which is 90 tiles of 45cm x 30cm in about 6hrs! The trick i found was to scrape a center groove out with the tool, and then use a stanley blade to scrape the sides back to the tile edge (i got through both sides of a new blade) it is possible to just use the grout rake at an angle so you scrape both sides of the joint, but you have to be careful not to slip as you can easily scratch the tile surface. I turned my grout from grey to white, and there's no trace of the old grout. Recommended."
"I used this little itty bitty saw on a job that was too big for it (40+ feet of floor tile grout and cement) . Result. The little devil didn't let me down. A little blunt on the point but plenty life in it yet. Strong contruction and handy design so you can get your palm on the flange to give extra down pressure."
"Good quality product which works well if you are just removing a single tile or just cleaning up the surface of the grout. If you need to remove the grout entirely from a large area I'd get a power tool though."
"Blade does a good job and is replaceable, but the design of the handle is very poor and leaves the palms of your hands very sore after prolonged use over two days when re-grouting a kitchen floor. Would not buy again."
"For the first wee while I thought this tool was great, it does exactly what it needs to and handles well. Unfortunately the blades blunt extremely quickly - over only 3sqm of tiles I already needed to use a replacement. I'd seek an alternative solution next time."
"I bought this to redo the grouting on a small area of my bathroom. The 'saw' blade wore out after going round the first two tiles, despite scoring the grout with a stanley knife first. After that it was almost totally useless. The other blade was useful at clearing the edges of the tiles - but the handle came off the tool before I was finished.
All in all, don't bother - this tool is just not well enough made to be useful."
"I used this to remove some fresh grout (less than 24 hours down) as the colour was incorrect. The area was 1.5 sqm of floor tiles. It did the job OK but by the end the saw blade was worn out. If you're into disposable tools or need it for just one small job then maybe it's just about OK, but I would not recommend this item otherwise."
"I bought this tool as I had to regrout our bathroom tiles due to some black mould and 14years worth of use.
This tool was hopeless. After using the 'saw' bit for about 750mm of grout line the thing was blunt. I had worn down the teeth and had to resharpen it with a file. I did this about 3 times and gave up, choosing to use a fixed blade Stanley knife. This was much faster and more reliable to score the grout down two sides of the line and then most of it came out.
I did use the grit edged blade to clean out the lines after this though, but only because I had bought it and seemed a waste not to get any use out of it.
The saw blade is made of a cheese based metal, or something equally as soft.
It would also take me 6x longer to do the same area using this tool than a Stanley knife.
If it was more expensive I'd return it for a refund. However this would cost me more in fuel and time so it will go straight to the bin I'm afraid."
