Worth the upgrade! Your hands will thank you
I upgraded to this trowel with a more comfortable handle for a 400sqft porcelain tile project and it was very comfortable to use. Easy to clean and stainless steel means it will last me a lifetime of DIY projects. 1/4 x 1/4 x 3/8 is proper size for 12" porcelain tile onto concrete subfloor.

Okay, it's a trowel and works as expected, but, the stainless steel aspect is what makes it better than the cheapo single-use trowels you can get for a few bucks less. Easier to clean, longer lasting, and the best part, the teeth don't bend at the slightest pull. Worth the extra few dollars.
