Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by A good role I have used this to smooth out a new extension to my porch and has worked very good. And it did a good job with me grout too. May 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works for what it is. I have not had any problems with this tool. It works as it should. The handle is not super comfortable, but it is cheap enough I don't care. I wouldn't buy this if I was laying tile for a living, though. December 10, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by broke half way threw the job. I was using this for gluing down hardwood floors. It got one room done then the handle broke off July 1, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terrible tool!!!! I bought one of these trowels, and five minutes into the work the handle breaks. It didn't cost too much, and now I know why. May 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor quality This looked good and sturdy when I bought it but halfway through my small bathroom project the handle fell off. It was inexpensive so I guess I got what I paid for. April 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor construction The wooden handle broke off after 15 minutes. Retuned it for another and the same thing happened. Got a new one wth a synthetic, one piece molded handle from the 'other' store and no problems. March 25, 2014
