Trowel Tips

If you buy a trowel you will need to shape it to use it.

 The corners on your trowel will usually be square even if you buy a pre worn or permashape trowel. So you can file it round or carefully use a grinding wheel or a file as shown below.  

 See the difference in the 2 trowels in the picture

 now sharpen all the edges of the trowel with your file 
 finish the treatment by sharpening the edges along an oil stone or emery paper

to gain the shape slightly concaved just press the edges of the blade down onto a board
