Marshalltown Plastering Trowels

Marshalltown plastering trowels come in a large variety of sizes ranging from 8" up to 20" and are available in several finishes in both new and pre-worn, carbon steel and stainless steel.

What is pre-worn?  A new non pre-worn trowel has sharp edges and a flat base which can often leave marks in the plaster.  Marshalltown pre-worn trowels have been attached to a dedicated machine which removes the sharp edges and grinds the bottom of the trowel making it ready for day to day use.

Do I buy a carbon steel trowel or a stainless steel trowel? Carbon steel trowels tend to be slightly more flexible but require better looking after as carbon steel can often rust if not cleaned and dried after use. Stainless steel by its nature does not rust but is not quite a flexible as the carbon steel models.

Another option you have available when buying Marshalltown plastering trowels is the choice of handle. These are available in either Durasoft or Wooden. The wooden handle is firm and rigid and has for years been the most popular choice until the newer Durasoft handle came along. These Durasoft handles are softer and more comfortable in the hand.
