"I bought this as I am on a course to learn bricklaying and I read the reviews on this site by professional bricklayers so on the back of that I invested in a good product.
My teacher was well impressed! I used it last night and it is nice and light and easy to use.
Most people in my class had bought cheapie versions but as I have often seen with tools you get what you pay for. Better to pay a bit extra and not have something that drives you potty because it doesn't perform well."
"A quality made tool for the pros. comfortable durasoft handle, i have used these durasoft marshalltown trowels for the past ten years with no problems, once you try these you wont go back, so dont be afraid to spend a bit extra on this quality product, you definately get what you pay for in terms of feel and quality. the ten inch is plenty big enough for getting the muck down on brickwork and less fatiguing than wider bodied counterparts. diy 'ers, youve got a tool for life."
"Since i brought this product i have used this trowel 6 hours a day 4 days a week at College , The handle is really comfortable the handle. and the blade seems to be made of top quality steel i would recommend a larger trowel if attended to do blockwork but if attended to brickwork i would recommend this trowel 10 out of 10"
