Marshalltown has introduced the Scratcher Trowel and the Scrathcher Knife. Made of the highest-grade spring steel for strength and durability, the blade of the trowel is 1/2- x 15/32-inch and is "V" notched on three sides with an aluminum alloy mounting. The knife features the same notch pattern of the trowel and has a blade made of the highest quality blue steel. Both tools come with a resilient DuraSoft handle to reduce fatigue and increase comfort. They can be used for a variety of applications, including scoring plaster to form a good bond between coats.
