The trowel is generally used to apply materials such as mortar and joint, to smooth the applied surface or to shape the plaster. Trowel, which is in the category of small hand tools, is known in the market with different types and names. In general terms, it is a flat tool with a tapering shape towards the tip, resembling a shovel, but without the curvature of the shovel. It is very comfortable and easy to use and grasp, thanks to the common plastic or wooden handle.

Trowel prices vary according to the types. Trowel types, on the other hand, differ according to the usage area and which need they meet. But in general, many types of trowels (except for special trowel types such as notched, toothed) serve the same purpose.
