I did a thread search and found a little reading but not much,,,, and the pictures were broken.
Fr8 bought some Kraft knives and I think he liked them.
I remember when choice was limited and you bought what was available locally, not any more.
How are things down under?

Re: Kraft Tool trowel


Hi folks.. so happy to see you guys writing here.

About the trowels i advice to stick to MT they are the best of all. I have the elite and the nela stainless, and i second your words ill deal with rust better than the wearing of stainless Steel.

I always checked my drywall levelness with my steel MT and my stainless steel ones tricked me because they are not level anymore !

It's OK to file your trowels and knives flat and straight from time to time.

Re: Kraft Tool trowel


Thanks Bob, I’ve been using this trowel now for a couple jobs and I’m happy with it. IMO the quality is right up with the Marshalltown premier line.
