Kokoro trowels for the professional bricklayer are now available from Speedcrete, United Kingdom.

Speedcrete have been exclusively supplying Kokoro Trowels in the United Kingdom for 18 months and have been pleased with the reaction from Bricklayers who have purchased them. As we all know, bricklayers can be very particular about the tools they use and will definitely put brick trowels through some tough love. Any bricklayer will tell you that the trowel is 'an extension of the arm' so it is always a nervous moment when you introduce a new brand into the market.

We are aware that the lift angle on Brick Trowels is one of the most important factors that can differentiate how it is used. Global factors like length, Pattern and handle material are a matter of preference which most brands cater for. With the W.Rose trowels the lift is low and with the Marshalltown trowels the lift is high. Without going into the story of Goldilocks we thought it would be a good idea to supply a trowel (Kokoro) that sat nicely in between these trowel lift angles.

The handle on the Kokoro trowels is a bit chunkier than our two other brand names and is available in Cork or Leather. We have had some customers saying this is great, of course some that don't like it at all but we are happy to offer to those that do prefer it, let variety be the spice of life!! (William Cowper)

The Kokoro Trowel are available in a range of sizes: 10", 11" and 12" in the Philadelphia or London Narrow Patterns with a cork or leather material handle.

These professional level trowels are made from a single piece of forged steel for extra strength, this is the one of the most important factors of purchasing a professional standard Brick trowel as there will be no weak points from the tip of the blade all the way up into the handle.

What does Kokoro mean?

Kokoro is a Japanese word that is often translated as “heart” or “spirit.” However, the concept of kokoro encompasses what a person thinks, feels, and would like to express. It is made of a person’s thoughts and will that drive them forward, the knowledge and experience they have acquired through time. We think that this meaning is very apt in regards to a bricklayer or masonry professional who creates the environment around him/her... One’s kokoro lives in everything he or she creates. The creation can be a material or conceptual.
