The blade and shank are forged from a single piece of uniquely formulated carbon steel for extra toughness. Forging also assures product consistency.
Blades are heat tempered with a special time-tested process to ensure uniform blade hardness.
W. Rose™ features a tapered ground blade for flexibility. Blades are made available in standard or limber weights as desired by the mason.
Each blade is carefully hand polished to keep mortar centered on the blade and resist sliding.
The forged steel blade and shank offer strength and integrity with no internal voids created by welding pieces together. Forged steel will not weaken or crack under use or impact as welded tools may.
The angle of the standard shank is specially balanced to reduce wrist fatigue. Many of our popular trowel patterns are also available in low lift shanks as some masons may prefer.
Four styles of handles are available on most W. Rose™ trowels - ProForm® soft grip, leather, two sizes of wood and plastic. All handles are specifially contoured for a comfortable grip. Replacement handles are also available.
Every trowel is inspected visually by experienced workers, keeping in mind the high quality standards of the W. Rose™ legacy. They are also tested for blade hardness and size consistency.
