20x5 marshalltown trowel
Most people are moaning about rust. It's carbon steel, what do you expect. The reason they make a carbon steel version is because it breaks in 5x faster than stainless. As long as the trowel edge is kept clean your fine.
My only drawback is it is heavy to use, I normally use a 14" trowel, but bought the 20" as I had a massive set to put on. It lays on fast and flat but is heavy so bear in mind.
Don't worry about the rust the pros out way the Neg in my opinion. However if this is your only trowel go for 14" this trowel is to big.

i also bought the 20x 5 float, and found out after I used it that it wasn't stainless steel. Why it's not I don't know. As metal will rust if it gets wet. Unless stainless and it's made for wet plaster.. Avoid this float unless you like rust

Most expensive trowel i could find, but after first use realized it wasn't stainless steel. Rust appeared after 2 hours. pock marked after 1 day
fine if you want to spend more time with wire wool and oil cleaning the thing than plastering. read the small print and get a genuine stainless steel one. Gutted i don't have £50 to waste

not my best float
Brought this float to add to my many Marshalltown plastering tools.
Although it did a very good job on the plaster and made easier work, I was disappointed that it had started to rust by the end of the day.
