Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveVA Great trowel through a few jobs
I have used this on three floor jobs now and its proven durable. I originally replaced a similar trowel of different brand with this one... after it broke in the middle of a tile job which was a major pain. Two floor jobs later and this one is working great.
I only use this on floor tile and typically with a thick modified thinset.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan Its a trowel.
It works. Its spacing is good for knuckle movement. The rubber is glued on well and didn't separate. I haven't tested its long term exposure to water... that will take more time.

Purchased this trowel to install the thinset for porcelain tile. This manufacturer makes the absolutely best trowels and products! This trowel spreads the thinset perfectly, holds up well when used on concrete floors and is easy to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BuyerBeware22 A specialty-size trowel
Before you buy this trowel, you should probably have some significant tiling experience.
I mainly use this trowel, often called a "deep-notch quarter," with premium modified thinset mortar for laying 12 x 12 in. granite or marble floor tile. In general, for ceramic or porcelain tile of this size with ridges or a waffle pattern on the back, I prefer the standard 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 ("quarter" or "regular quarter") trowel. To anyone who's been trained to hold the trowel at an approximate 45 degree angle to make the passes that create the notches for a thinset mortar bed, slightly varying the angle to increase or decrease the amount of mortar being laid down, this trowel will add just a bit more mortar than the regular quarter. That makes it very useful for the getting a little bit extra on tricky marble or granite installations.
But again, it's a specialty item. If you find yourself habitually holding your trowel at maybe 30 degrees when you make your notching passes, you should probably modify your technique with the regular quarter rather than buy this trowel.
I also really like this trowel because it's a bit lighter than others like it I've used and does very nicely for careful work on the backs of really expensive tile.
