"I am not a bricky by trade, but I do need to lay blocks and bricks from time to time. I have always found it quicker and easier for me to use a gauging trowel instead of a normal bricklaying trowel. I work from a large bucket of mortar (Quote: 77265) and this style of trowel makes it simple to get every last bit out.
DIY and non-trade brick layers may find this will work better for them using than a large trowel.
Keep it clean and this will last you for ages. The handle cap doesn't fall out after ten minutes of use either as you find with the really cheap trowels."
