The trowel is then tempered for strength and ground for flexibility. Each blade is then polished to keep mortar centered on the blade and to resist material from sliding.
The tool is designed for perfect balance during use to reduce fatigue. The hardwood handle is attached with a steel ferrule and balanced for ease of use.
