Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pjclark4 Rust after second use
I used this twice. I've been dealing with dry wall and dry wall tools for 25 years. I rinsed it with water immediately after both uses, dried with a rag, and then air dried without the blade touching anything. Went to use it a third time, 24 hours after the last coat, and it had rust spots that were rough to the touch. You can't expect a smooth finish with that, so this tool I purchased five days ago is now worthless.
I will take it back to HD to try and get a refund, but I'd love to hear the manufacture chime in here with an explanation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Alex DO NOT BUY!!
Again it is a cheap Chinese made product that will rust within minutes of moisture contact. I couldn't believe that after the first day of use the entire knife started rusting very badly. So much for a fake looking stainless steel product. I will never buy this product again and please stop selling cheap Chinese made tools.

This knife was perfect for the few minor patches I had in Sheetrock. I was able to make my repairs and had minimal sanding to do.

This is a taping knife, which I think is more flexible than a “putty” knife. This is what I wanted, but would have preferred a 5” (that nobody apparently makes anymore, for some strange reason). The rivets in the handle did loosen somewhat, but I don’t think they will come out and it does not really affect the function. Should not have happened though and is why I only gave it an "average" rating.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by THECCLLCcom Bend the corners
A small trowel like this is good to have in your arsenal for touch ups where larger trowels left behind trail lines. Just has a hammer to tap /hit each side of one of these trowels, or bend the corners, just very small bend and maybe an 8th to 3/8ths wide area - it will make a perfect finish with no trails! On a lot of other trowels, you dont want to do this because they have a side that is bowed in and a side bowed out (ever so very very slightly). Use which ever side you need depending on the joint or what have you that you are trying to finish!
