PT-140 Spade Trim Tool 3/4"



This Spade Trim tool is made from high carbon knife-quality steel that has been heat treated and quenched in oil to give the blades maximum hardness and durability. The high carbon steel takes and holds a much sharper edge than stainless steel, they are able to tackle even highly-grogged clays and plaster.



Tips For Use:

  • The tool is durable, but not indestructible.
  • Keep tools clean and dry when not in use.
  • Do not leave tools soaking in water or slurry for extended periods of time.
  • Periodically apply a light coat of oil to the both the blade and handle.
  • Sharpen using an oil or water whetstone.
  • Do not sharpen using a file.
  • Do not sharpen with a power grinder. This will heat the steel, which changes the temper and destroys the tool.
