"Very smooth, well polished surface, gave a fine finish that made me feel very happy. The grip is smooth to hold, and grippy enough to prevent the twisting motion that these sorts of trowels are inclined to induce. Clean it up after you use it and it will last forever."
"I needed a smaller trowel for a specific job where my MT 14" couldn't get in. I read a review on here giving it 5/5 so I was happy and ordered it. When it came it looked nice and clean and shiny with a coating and I thought OK. However the second I started to trowel up I was gutted, not only did it feel horrible in my hand but it left loads of scratch lines in the plaster and I mean loads. At first I thought it was the coating so I gave it a light sand on the edges but it was the same, on close inspection the metal edges had not been finished and were rough on all 4 sides. I gave it a sanding with my sander for 10 mins but still is rubbish. I now use this trowel to scrape up any spills off the floor and it still leaves scrape marks on that! Not even fit for a DIYer."
