Favorite Knockdown Knife


Anybody got a favorite knockdown knife, or one that you especially don't like? I have used the Magic Trowel and I like it; I see that somebody else has come out with a squeegee type also. Someone had said somewhere that they liked the lexan knife, but I haven't tried that one.

I like the Lexan knives. I have two of every size, the 36in is great for doing ceiling.

Mixalot, you have to jump on stilts for ceilings with those knives? Anyhow, thanks for posting the picture for us.

That was the first picture that was snagable. The ones I use are threaded for a pole. But nice try!

Sorry Mixalot, I thought you used that knife. I was only asking how you did your ceilings with a knife like that...
