description

Trowel with an elongated (approx. 16-20 cm), flat and narrow (approx. 2.5-4 cm) blade that is rounded or pointed and attached to a handle with a bent joint.

It is used by the bricklayer or tile roofer to apply mortar between roof tiles. The plasterer uses it in places where it is difficult to reach with other tools, behind heating pipes, etc.

To be distinguished from the tongue trowel of the bricklayer and not to be confused with the beekeeper's uncapping knife. [MOT]
