    Hi All

    Used a Ragni for years, but it's got damaged and the edge is fooked....

    It was worn in and only 13" so perfect for me. (used it for roughing as well)

    I am a DIYer and borrowed a newish bigger Marshaltown and could not use it as the edge was to 'sharp' for me.

    Is there anything out there that you guys recommend that is easy to use as new ?

    Cheers

    I like those Ragni's with the grey handle. Just run it over an old belt sander to take the edges off. The pre worn ones are pretty useless.

    I scraped mine on a concrete floor to round the edges.

    It is always the case unfortunately an old trowel is like a good friend with any new one it will take a while until you are use to it
    Personally I have few trowels but the Marshall Town gold and the Refina plastic are absolute favourites
